quick tip tuesday: rich chocolate muffins

It’s always a good thing to have some quick recipes up your sleeve for last minute meals and desserts, and it’s even easier with the amazing mixes and ready to make products available at grocery stores. My favourite item to stock up on is cake and brownie mixes. Sure, baking something from scratch is almost always better, but this recipe, or quick idea, is just what you need for a last minute dessert craving, or a crowd pleasing dessert for when you’ve used up all your energy on cooking the main course.

Here’s what you need:

1 box brownie mix plus the ingredients listed on the back

1 cup chopped walnut

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Prepare the brownie mix according to the box instructions, then fold in the walnuts, chocolate chips and the peanut butter chips. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners and fill the cupcake tins 2/3 up. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes or until the cupcakes are just set. Don’t over bake them or they’ll become dry.

That’s it! Just a little mixing and you have these deliciously gooey cupcakes loaded with chocolate, peanut butter and walnuts!
