Treat Tuesday - Giant Muffins

This girl, who just had her first manicure with the lovely Aunt Sarah, loves chocolate chip muffins.
I mean, truly loves chocolate chip muffins. And what's the only thing better than a chocolate chip muffin? A giant red chocolate chip muffin. They are so easy to make. In fact I cheated. A lot. I mixed up a white cake mix. Yup. A mix. Added chocolate chips to the batter and some food colouring left over from this. Easy, right? I'm all for homemade, but sometimes, just sometimes, a mix is where it's at.

Once you've mixed up your batter, all you need is a coffee filter and a ramekin. Now Le Creuset has some lovely ramekins, but ours come from Canadian Tire. Much more affordable. As in you could get 8 ramekins for the price of 1 from Le Creuset. But, back to the muffins.

Now place a coffee filter into the ramekin. And fill 3/4 full of batter. Bake. Yep. It's that easy.

They really are giant. And so much more fun! The muffin on the right is a regular muffin baked in a normal size cupcake pan. Go big. Go bold. Have fun. Because sometimes you just need to add a little sparkle to your muffins.
