Make Butterfly Muffins

These fruity mini-muffins are tasty whether served warm or cold. A chocolate butterfly adds a sweet touch!

What You Need

  • pre-packaged cornbread mix
  • small cupcake tins
  • canned fruit (fruit cocktail or mandarin oranges work well)
  • hot fudge sauce

What You Do

  • STEP 1: PREPARE THE FRUIT

    Drain the water or syrup from the canned fruit. Spread the fruit pieces out on a paper towel while you prepare the muffins.

  • STEP 2: PREPARE THE MUFFINS

    Prepare muffins as directed. Spoon into a small cupcake tin, filling each muffin cup about halfway. Carefully arrange two pieces of fruit (for wings) on top of each muffin.

    • Tip: Be careful not to overfill the muffin tins. You don’t want the muffins to rise too far over the edge, or the wings will distort.
  • STEP 3: BAKE MUFFINS

    Bake as directed, or until the edges of the muffins are golden brown. Cool the muffins completely.

  • STEP 4: ADD CHOCOLATE BUTTERFLY

    Draw the butterfly’s body by piping fudge sauce in between the wings.

TIPS & TRICKS

To make an easy piping bag, use a heavy-duty sandwich/freezer bag and poke a hole in one corner. Roll the bag in between your hands to warm up the fudge. It will flow better if it is slightly warmed.
