Sour Cream Chip Muffins

Take one bite and you'll see why I think these rich, tender muffins are the best I've ever tasted. Mint chocolate chips make them a big hit with my family and friends. —Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho

    This is such a good recipe! I substituted raspberry jam for the chocolate chips. They are moist and generous and a big hit!

    I made this and it was a huge hit with my family. I doubled it, and followed the recipe. I will make it again, but will reduce the amount of sugar. I found these a bit too sweet.

    I’ve made these several times, always with dried cherries rather than chocolate chips. They are flavorful and very light in texture. The Sunday School kids long them.

    This recipe was delicious! I only had half a cup of sour cream so as another reviewer said, I also used yogurt, half a cup. Next time I make these muffins I will make two dozen because you can’t eat just one!

    I just made two batches of these, and had to jump online to say how delicious they are. I'll definitely be making them again, thanks for the recipe!

    Huge hit! I used Greek vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream and skipped adding the vanilla. I also completely forgot to add the melted I brushed it over the top of the cooked muffins. I think it would work just fine without the butter. It is a tasty and forgiving recipe!

    This recipe came out perfect, despite my only having reduced fat sour cream on hand. These muffins are a great alternative for chocolate chip pancakes.

    Best chocolate chip muffins I’ve ever made. I used half sour cream and half Greek yogurt and semi sweet chocolate chips. Really good.

    ...but Ivy if I did the sour cream and lemon zest I wouldn't add the chocolate bits of any kind-I'd let the lemon&sour cream do all the talking...think it's a citrus&chocolate thing I'm not fond of ie. orange&chocolate, nope
