Why hello 2012 nice to see you!
I know the start of a new year is usually ushered in by resolutions, many of which involving diets or healthier eating or the call for more hours spent in the gym. Well I’ve never been one for resolutions – making them or sticking to them – so instead I’m starting the year off with Oreo Muffins. You see I like my sweets and I just can’t fool myself into thinking that I’m going to eat less of them so I’m skipping the games and diving into 2012 sweets first!
It’s all in the name. Oreo muffins are everything you would imagine them to be. They have a rich chocolately flavor with a hint of smooth creamy decadence. The addition of sour cream creates a soft springy texture. The cookies fold seamlessly into the muffin dough, permeating each bite with Oreo goodness. These muffins are decadent and satisfying but light enough that they don’t leaving you feeling too guilty, especailly if you bake them as mini muffins. Bake a batch of muffins and start the year off with some sweetness.
Happy New Year!
