What are the Best Chocolate Chips to Use for Chocolate Chip Muffins?

Tips for Making the Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Muffins

– Use room temperature ingredients to ensure your batter comes together evenly. Using room temperature ingredients will also help your muffin tops get nice and tall.

– Another trick for tall bakery-style muffins is to let the batter rest overnight in the fridge. You can also fill the muffin liners to the top to give them higher domes.

– Be wary of overmixing your batter. It will make your muffins dense instead of soft and tender.

– To prevent the bottoms of your muffins from burning, place the oven rack in the center of your oven.
