Thinking of putting about a tablespoon of mini choc chips on top of my choc cupcake batter before baking them.
Has anyone done this? How does it turn out? does the chocolate chips sink or melt on top?
Thanks icon_smile.gif

I usually hand drop 4-5 reg size chips on top and use a toothpick to twirl them in just a little. Mine don't melt when baking but they do add a wonderful extra chocolate kick! Love love adding them to my red velvet cuppies!!

Go ahead and mix them in the batter. I do the "Darn Good Chocolate Cake" recipe which calls for a bag of mini chocolate chips in the batter and it is to die for. A wonderful chocolate surprise in every bite.

I have found that if you take your chocolate chips & coat them lightly in flour THEN put them on the batter, they do not sink. HTH

A handful of chocolate chips (can be regular sized) amps up any brownie recipe, too. YUM!

I second KATHIESKREATIONS. Coat them well with flour first, or they will sink to the bottom of your cupcakes.
