Cadbury Creme Egg muffins
My friend Laura, knowing my affinity for Cadbury Creme Eggs, sent me this recipe (originally from for Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins. When baked, the muffins are kind of plain looking, but they're delicious with a nice treat waiting inside. Best served warm; reheat in the microwave for a few seconds before eating. A great way to make use of discount Easter candy now on sale!
