Duffins – The Donut Muffin

Donut Muffin

All I have to say is that these are awesome. Is it a donut? Is it a muffin? It’s a baked donut in the shape of a muffin that tastes like a donut…Whatever it is it’s fun and it’s tasty!

6. Let the muffins cool for a few minutes but when still warm melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 1-2 minutes. Then add a few tablespoons of cream or vegetable oil and stir. Spoon the chocolate on top of each muffin and immediately add the sprinkles. Best served warm!
