I think I have got this muffin thing down pat.
And this recipe is linked to:
And these were even a rush job. I had an hour and a half before I had to leave for school. I made my muffins, showered, did make-up, and took my foodie photos all within that hour and a half. I even took a couple of these muffins to my instructor.
You know what I got?
An automatic "A".......ha ha....I'm such a brown-noser.....
No, for real, my instructor follows my blog so I thought I would take him some of my goodies to sample.
Sure, I'll wait while you guess.
It is crumbled chocolate chip cookies.
I had three cookies left-over that no one was eating, so I took a meat mallet to them.
And this technique is also a great stress reliever. Do you have a someone that just gets under your skin daily? Someone that just pushes your buttons to the limit?
Well, here is how you deal with them.
Put your cookies in a plastic bag, grab the meat mallet, get a good picture image of that irritating person, and start swing'n.....
This is for you irritating me, BANG, BANG, BANG, and this is for you getting under my skin daily, BANG, BANG, and just for getting on my last nerve, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG.....
See, I told you it would be good stress relief.....
Sprinkle the cookie crumbs on top of the muffins before baking. Don't be afraid to put them on heavy. The more there are, the crunchier the tops are.
The cookie crumbs browned nicely. And don't forget to add water to the empty muffin cups before baking. Never leave them empty.
I used some sweet and salty caramel dip to put on the tops after they were cool. I heated the caramel just a little. Enough to make it pour-able.

1/2 c. butter, soft
