Domino Effect

A representative from Domino Sugar contacted me with a lovely holiday offer. Each week Domino Sugar chooses a select group of food bloggers to receive a $20 gift card to use toward purchasing ingredients to make holiday goodies and gifts. I was honored by their offer and excited to select a recipe from their website. After a fun search through their recipe section, I settled for this delicious peanut butter recipe. I tweeked the ingredients a bit by adding peanut butter with honey to play up the sweetness factor. These muffins were scrumptious and packed with peanut butter flavor. These are a must for all you PB lovers out there.

Adapted from Domino Sugar

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon - baking soda1/4 teaspoon - salt
  • 1/2 cup - butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cup - creamy peanut butter with honey
  • 1 cup - Domino® Granulated Sugar
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1/2 cup - milk
  • Chocolate Glaze (recipe follows)
Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 24 medium muffin cups or line with paper baking cups; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.

In another large mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugar.

Add eggs

and gradually add milk and combine well.

Add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture and mix with a wooden spoon

until dry ingredients are moistened. Mixture will be stiff.

Spoon batter into each muffin cup, filling cup 3/4 full.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in muffin cups on wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove; cool completely. Frost with Chocolate Glaze using a fork, if desired.

Chocolate Glaze: Add 1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to 1 cup Domino® Confectioners Sugar,

1 tablespoon softened butter and 1 1/2 tablespoons milk. Add more milk, a teaspoon at a time, until mixture is desired consistency for spreading.

Let glaze drip off of fork tines and move back and forth to make a striped pattern on the muffins.

Makes 24 muffins.

I'm a hardcore PB fan, anyone can tell that by seeing just a couple of the PB blog posts I have! I've never made PB muffins, so this is a must try!

I love peanut butter, these would be great for a quick breakfast running out the door.

Those do look good! It may be a little dangerous having that much sugar in your pantry. At least it would be for me :) (still working on that self control thing).
