Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Chips

Jonathan asked me to buy him some muffins at Sam's Club the next time I shopped there; his favorite is the chocolate and he wanted to eat them while driving to class. However, the price has gone up to almost 7-dollars! The muffins are over sized and I am sure 7-dollars for 12 giant muffins is still a great deal but to me it's just too much.
So I began a search which led me to a blog that led me to this recipe on The Food Network. I noticed, while gathering my ingredients this morning, that the recipe did not have salt listed. No salt? Wow, how can that be? So I stopped my preparations and began reading comments listed under the original recipe to see what was going on; after a little reading I realized the original recipe needed a little tweaking.
I must say these are the very best chocolate muffins I have ever had! Here is the recipe I used after taking suggestions from the comments left on the original recipe page.

Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Chips

1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 to 1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine dry ingredients; add liquid and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Place in paper lined muffin tins and bake 20 minutes or until done. The recipe states it makes 12 muffins but I ended up with 20 muffins.

Patty, thanks for the recipe. Can't wait to try it.

Prices are just getting ridiculous, aren't they?

Those look delicious and I'm going to try them after vacation.
I agree with you, I'd not pay that much either.

Those look GREAT! I'm sure my son and my co workers will enjoy them when I make them when I get back from vacation! The big question is, did Jonathon like them?
