12 Days of Holiday Treats: Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

The halfway point is always the point in which I think to myself, “I just might be able to make this happen again!”

I am really trying to mix up the types of treats I am presenting to you, as not everyone wants sugar cookies and gingerbread men. Sometimes, people want mini muffins!

Adorable, sweet (but not too sweet) and dotted with chocolate (the best!) these muffins are bite sized and definitely a crowd pleaser. And even better, I was able to bake all 48 at once thanks in part to my wonderful 48 mini muffin tin I snatched (well, I payed of course) from Target a few years back from the clearance section…Heyy-o!!!

Well we are almost halfway through this Holiday adventure, and I don’t know about you, but I’m sure enjoying myself.

Yesterday we went to Target and per usual checked out the clearance backing rack…good idea. Steven picked up a package of Pumpkin Spice Chips…SCORE! I had looked for them in October with no luck, and now they were on sale! I definitely considered myself one lucky lady.

I went right home and proceeded to bake these super tasty bars.

12 Days of Holiday Treats: Puppy Chow

Puppy Chow, that nostalgic treat that brings us all back to elementary school snack time and cartons of cold milk.

I am pretty certain the idea of Puppy Chow (Muddy Buddies for some of you) does not need to be sold to anyone. Sugar coated chocolate and peanut butter covered Chex? Sign me right up!

Right on! AmIright?!

Oops! Banana Bread

Sometimes you have nasty looking bananas hanging by a thread on your banana basket hook…but sometimes you don’t quite have all of the regular ingredients for good ol’ banana bread.

Sometimes you let a lack of ingredients and motivation to run to the store stop you from baking banana bread…and sometimes you say “Fuck it!” and figure that shit out.

…this is one of those times.

I took your standard banana bread recipe and twisted some of the ingredients to not only reflect my pantry…but also my inner spirit animal (doesn’t make sense to you? Me either.).SAMSUNG CSC

I neglected to tell anyone I gave this Oops! Banana Bread to about my changes…but they didn’t seem to notice…but rather raved and found it quite delicious and enjoyable.

Nah’ mean?!

It’s one thing cheat on the cake part and quite another to ALSO cheat on the frosting part. In which case you WOULD get judging eyes leering at you from my direction.

These cookies are all things pretty, and neon, and all together perfect! With their fluffy centers and luscious taste you just simply cannot.go.wrong.

Truth. Scout’s honor…or…baker’s honor…feel me?BBB_Birthday Cake Cookies-2

I made these cookies for a work treat day, where they were decidedly a total win upon them not returning home with me, and then Steven made a batch for my arrival home from visiting my brother and having my brother’s girlfriend over for the night (prior to her visiting the bro-ha).
