  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup Dan and Debbie’s Salted Butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ¾ cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cup mini chocolate chips, or your favorite variety
  • coarse/decorating sugar for sprinkling, optional


  • Preheat your oven to 425F degrees and butter or line a 12 cavity muffin tin.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy – about 2 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until combined.
  • Turn off your mixer, scrape down the sides & fold in the sour cream and buttermilk.
  • Carefully fold in the flour mixture until almost combined. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Fill your muffin tins to the very top (about a generous ⅓ cup). Optionally sprinkle with a few extra chocolate chips and coarse sugar.
  • Then bake at 425F degrees for 5 minutes. Turn down the oven to 375F degrees and continue baking for 13-15 minutes.
  • Allow muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then continue cooling on a wire rack.
