MY LATEST RECIPES

Muffins:

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup orange granulated sugar crystals
  • 12 small green candies
  • Orange & green food coloring
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or line muffin pan with orange paper baking cups.
  2. Stir together water, vegetable oil, eggs and muffin mix until moistened. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
  3. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; gently loosen and remove from pan.
  4. Whisk together 1 cup powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Separate 3-4 tablespoons of glaze into a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup powdered sugar and green food coloring and whisk until smooth. Transfer to a small bag and cut a bottom corner, so it’s ready to pipe. Set aside.
  5. Add orange food coloring to the remaining glaze. Dip the top of each muffin into the glaze, then immediately into a bowl of orange sugar crystals. Transfer to a cooling rack to set. Repeat with remaining muffins.
  6. Whisk 1/4 cup powdered sugar and more orange food coloring into what’s left of the glaze.
  7. Transfer to a small bag and cut a bottom corner. Pipe 5-6 curved orange lines on top of each muffin. Place a small green candy in the middle where the lines intersect. Pipe curling green vines coming out from the center “stem.”
  8. Transfer to a cooling rack to set. Store cooled muffins in tightly covered container.

Here are some tips on making the BEST muffins ever:

  • Do not overmix! Muffin batter should be stirred just to combine the ingredients. There’s no need to use an electric mixer of any sort, a mixing bowl and a rubber scraper work just fine!
  • You an use orange muffin liners for this recipe, or if you prefer not, be sure to spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray that includes flour. This spray is specifically for baked goods and works so well! Never have your baked muffins stick to the pan again!
  • A large ice cream scoop with a lever works perfectly for measuring out regular sized muffins like these! Want to use a mini muffin tin? No problem- the small scoop works perfect for those.
  • Want a more rounded muffin top? Increase the oven temperature by 50 degrees for the first 3-4 minutes, then decrease it as per the recipe’s instructions and bake for the remaining time.
