Frosted: Instead of sprinkles, frost them with chocolate or vanilla frosting.
Stuffed: Instead of using chocolate chips, make plain cookie dough and press a big chunk of chocolate into the center of each filled muffin tin.
- Never scoop your flour out with your measuring cup. Instead, gently spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with the flat of a knife. This prevents using too much flour.
