White Chip Confetti Muffins with Sweet Sugar Topping
In my family, the majority of our birthdays are in the spring. So, I thought I would come up with a special breakfast treat to start the birthday boy or girl's day off right. Hope your loved one enjoys these as much as my little taste testers did this morning!!
1 confetti cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 tsp. almond extract
3/4 c. white chocolate chips, frozen (keeps them from melting)
Mix all ingredients, except chips, together in a medium size bowl. Fold in chips last. Fill paper muffin cups 3/4 full.
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/2 stick of butter or margarine, diced
1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle 1 tsp. over muffins before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. Makes approx. 18 muffins.
