White Chocolate & Strawberry Muffins
Guess what, I saw Alvin and the Chipmunks for like the 87th time this weekend! Word. There are things in life, especially when you have a toddler that you are surely going to repeat a few times. Indy has a nice list of repeats.
Below are a few things.
1. See above (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
2. Chocolate Milk, this is a serious obsession that I am having trouble not using as a coercing item. Basically if I need the mini-me to move, I offer up the dark chocolate juice that calls her name. Please tell me I am not the only mom to do such things?? Anyone… *taps mic* Is this thing on?
Also while typing this out I just fed my girl a Cadbury Egg, her favorite and #1 reason she is potty trained. It’s starting to look like I have a serious problem with begging my daughter to do things with chocolate…she has it SOOOOO good.
Below is a chocolate recipe fit for begging a toddler or adult to do your bidding. So ladies..and gents – Make out that Honey do list and get your baking on.
PS. 2nd week of P90X completed
PPS. Thanks for all of your prayer requests, it was an honor to incorporate you & your family and friends into our Easter. I kept all your names on the chair next to me.
INGREDIENTS (makes 12)
Recipe delightfully borrowed off the back of a Ghirardelli Bar
¼ cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbs baking powder
1 cup flour
8 oz White Chocolate, chopped
¾ cup, diced strawberries
Pre-Heat your oven to 375.
Butter and Flour your muffin pan, add parchment to the very bottom of each muffin spot. This makes for very easy removal.
In a medium sized bowl, cream together the sugar & butter. Next, add in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract and stir until well combined.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and chopped white chocolate. Gradually add this into your wet items until just combined.
Now add in those gorgeous Strawberries. Stir only enough to evenly distribute them. This batter is quite lumpy, and that’s a good thing.
Fill your muffin cups ¾ of the way full. Bake for 20-25 minutes for large muffins.
Now I'm off to run our Easter egg hunt.
