Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving. No! I did not go shopping. It's insane out there. People were actually camping out infront of the stores overnight to be the first in line to buy whatever it is they were going to buy. I just don't get it. But, that's me. I'll cook and crochet and make whatever comes to mind. If I happen to see something that I absolutely have to have for someone maybe I'll get and then again, maybe I won't. This commercialism is starting to get to me.
So, today, Bob's watching football and basketball. He's got that mighty remote in his hands and switching back and forth between games. I'm watching some old movies on the boob tube, my crocheting basket next to me and I'm sipping some hot peppermint tea and having some muffins. I'm still too full from yesterdays meal to have a full course. Life is nice and peaceful right now.
So, I wanted to share the muffins I made with you and ask you to relax. Sit back and enjoy these holidays. Stop and smell the roses...or the chocolate. Big hugs from me to you.
Mexican Chocolate Cinnamon Muffins
1 package plain devil's food cake mix
1 package (3.9 ounce) chocolate instant pudding mix
1 cup (8 ounce) sour cream
½ cup water
½ cup oil
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped Mexican Chocolate
1 cup pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 350°. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners, set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, water, oil, and eggs. Blend with a mixer on low for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes, scraping down sides again. Fold in the chocolate and pecans into the batter. Spoon batter into lined muffin cups to ¾ of the way full. Bake for 23 to 27 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool pans on wire racks for 5 minutes. Carefully remove muffins from pans and allow to cool completely on wire rack.
