1 (8 ounce) package mascarpone cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prep a muffin pan with liners.
In a bowl stir together the mascarpone and the butter. Add the egg, milk and vanilla.
In a separate bowl whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the flour to the mascarpone mixture until just combined. Don’t overmix!
Fold in the chocolate chips. If you are using white chocolate chips, use less, they are MUCH sweeter than regular chocolate. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups filling them 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, depending on your oven. Let cool on a wire rack. If you can’t find mascarpone, cream cheese works as well, but I like the texture that the mascarpone gives. Try it out!
