It’s the best time of the year again… Christmas time! I thought for Christmas I would bake some yummy chocolate chip muffins! I was inspired to make these muffins by the cutest cupcake kit I found at Marshalls. When I saw this kit I knew I had to buy it! The kit comes with polka dot and stripe cupcake holders. It also comes with the cutest Santa Claus, reindeer, stars, and Christmas tree toppers! Oh and let’s not forget about the packaging… too cute.
Instead of making cupcakes with it I made some delicious chocolate chip muffins. Of course If you like you could also do cupcakes. I think having vanilla icing on cupcakes would make it look like snow under the toppers which is real cute! I just thought muffins matched the little cupcake holders. For my muffins I used a simple Betty Crocker chocolate chip muffin mix because I am focusing more on the decorations. I followed the directions on the back of the box by adding 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vegetable oil (make sure you don’t do 1 1/4 cup which I almost accidentally did… oops haha), and 2 eggs. Then stir until it’s smooth, pour them in the tray, and then just put them in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15-20 minutes. Watch them so they don’t burn! Let them cool down and pop on the cute toppers! Super easy, fast, and cute! I decided to put a glass of milk on the side with a cute tiny candy cane hanging from the cup. I also added some wire lights around the muffins. I think it makes it look like the Santa and reindeer are dancing haha. I’m obsessed with fairy lights, they make everything look extra cute! You can find these cute copper wire lights at Nordstrom. I hope you enjoyed reading and were inspired to make your own festive treats!
P.s. I have so many more baking posts COMING SOON which aren’t with a ready cake mix. They will all be delicious! Hope you like them!
