My youngest child like chocolate chip muffins. My husband and oldest son like blueberry muffins. I’ll eat whatever muffins might be left. Give a choice, I’d probably choose something like a warm cheesecake muffin but they don’t make a box mix for those. I also don’t have a recipe and would be the only one eating them. Maybe I’ll look into adding some into the mix for the Easter brunch we host annually. Did I just hear a Pinterest search calling my name? I’ll finish this post first.
I used to buy the just add water chocolate chip muffin mix but would have to buy 2 because 1 mix didn’t make enough muffins for everyone. My husband and oldest son would eat chocolate chip muffins even though they aren’t their favorites. When I bought the blueberry muffin mix, I would hear incessant complaints from my
pain in the outspoken youngest child. That left me (because I am sometimes nice) making two sets of muffins each morning. The grocery budget did not do good with 2 sets of muffin mixes in the cart every few weeks. I also didn’t make muffins as often because it was a bit of a hassle to make two kinds of muffins each time.
One day I had an idea while mixing up these:
I added about 3 muffins worth of batter into a separate bowl using my large scoop.
I added the blueberries to one bowl and a few chocolate chips to the other:
I also used different colored papers for the different types of muffins:
Muffins for all made from one box:
Of course, the best deal would be to make the muffins from scratch and adjust them to the taste of each person. I’m pretty sure there is a recipe for that type of muffin in one of my Betty Crocker cookbooks. However, this works well for those of us who aren’t chipper enough in the mornings to be mixing up muffins from scratch but still want to give our families fresh-baked muffins on cold mornings. What kind of muffins do you prefer?
