Chocolate Chip Muffins

As the impending Christmas deadline rapidly approaches, I’ve noticed my patience waning to the point of non-existent. To counteract a possible short circuit in temperament, I thought it best to ease my frustration with some baked goods. With all the good deals on holiday baking ingredients, I easily whipped up a batch of chocolate chip muffins from Taste of Home to help coax me into yet another day of “MUST BE DONE BY FRIDAY” demands. Hmm, maybe this is why so many people indulge in chocolate when they’re stressed…

    There really isn’t enough time to get to all we want to do this time of year. I don’t even know what makes me think some of my hoped-for projects are even possible! But I’ve been trying to do some baking and to satisfy at least some of my desire to create some fabulous Christmas treats! I love these muffins…my granddaughters would be thrilled with me if I make them. I’m going to try…I still have a little bit of time left!🙂
