Friday Snack: Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1 box white or vanilla cake mix
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Follow directions on boxed cake mix. Add vanilla. Stir ingredients well. Add chocolate chips and gently stir together.

Pour mixture in cupcake pan (I recommend using cupcake liners as the chocolate chips can get a bit sticky). Bake in a 350 degree oven following the suggestion on the boxed cake mix (typically, 17-18 minutes does the trick in my oven).

Remove from oven and cool thoroughly before icing.
