Cherry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Made, Written, & Photographed by the Creators of the Point

I recently learned that Tyler doesn't like muffins. I don't know what's wrong with him, but that only means more muffins for me!

This recipe is one that I'd be happy to keep all to myself. They're kind of your typical chocolate chip muffins, but they have that added cherry flavor to make them something special. The crunchy top is also a level of deliciousness not all muffins have.

Next, make the muffins:

  2. Whisk together your 1/2 cup melted butter, slightly cooled, 1 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract. Stir in your flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Make sure to stir until all ingredients are combined.

  3. Fold in your chopped cup of cherries and 3/4 cup chocolate chips.

  4. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full. Top with the crumble topping and bake for 16-20 minutes. Make sure a tooth pick or fork can be inserted and removed without excess dough. Cool for a few minutes in pan and then remove to cool completely on wired rack.
