MINI-MORSEL MUFFINS

This recipe is from my old hometown newspaper when I was a kid growing up in Southern Indiana.

2 cups all-purpose flour
6-ounces semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
6 tbsps butter, melted
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, mini-morsels, nuts, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, blend the milk, melted butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture. Stir together just until the flour mixture is moistened (it is okay if the batter is lumpy). Spoon the mixture into 12 greased muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes, then remove.
