Anne said...

Those muffins sound amazing! Totally worth a battle with the muffin pan ;)

i've never had butterscotch muffins, they sound yummy and definitely like something i need to try.

Ah, now I see that its the dark cocoa powder which gives it that color. Butterscotch + chocolate = heaven! :)

Think it'd still make a mess if you sprayed floured baking spray in there too???? Sure it was worth it though! They look super chocolately.

They look so rich and dark and decadent! I don't think I've ever had chocolate and butterscotch together. How yummy!

They look wonderful! I love the healthy ingredients you are using here!

Sounds like a magnificent muffin to me! I am always using tinfoil to line pans, muffin cups, etc. to avoid more messes!! :-)
