Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Start by combining your dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) in a bowl and set aside.
Then, cream together the softened butter and the sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add in the eggs, one at a time, waiting for each egg to get fully combined before adding the other.
Add in vanilla.
Begin to add in the dry ingredients, alternating with the half cup of milk, into the butter mixture. Mix until almost combined.
Add the chocolate chips into the batter, mixing by hand. Scoop into pre-lined cupcake molds.
Put the muffins into the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Then decrease the heat to 375. Bake for another 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean!
Once cooled slightly, slather with butter and enjoy!!
