Snickers and Peanut-Butter Muffins
1 2/3 C. all-purpose flour
6 T. sugar
1 1/2 T. baking powder
Pinch of salt
6 T. chunky peanut butter
1/4 C. unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 C. milk
3 1/2 full-size (2.07-ounce) Snickers bars, chopped
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 12 cups of standard-size muffin tin, or line with
paper baking cups.
Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add peanut butter and mix
until mixture turns into coarse crumbs. In separate bowl, combine butter, egg
and milk. Gently stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, about 15 seconds.
Lightly mix in Snickers pieces, about 10 seconds. It's OK if small bits of
unmoistened flour remain. Do not overmix.
Evenly dollop batter into cups of prepared muffin tin. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or
when the tops are golden and just firm when lightly touched. Set pan on a wire
rack for 5 to 10 minutes, then remove muffins and set on wire rack to cool.
Makes 12 muffins.
