While making these “Holiday” White Chocolate and Cranberry Muffins I get visions of my kids… all sweet in their jammies and slippers… waiting patiently at the breakfast table…. Smiling… Ready to start the day… plans to hold hands as we skip through the meadows in search of the perfect Christmas Tree.
Cue the choir of Angels~
And then reality hits…
One teen shuffles into the kitchen in boxers and a t-shirt…. Hair on end….grunting
The other one is still asleep, and will be for another 4 to 5 hours
And the little one? She ate a box of crackers when she got up at 6, so she’s not hungry (and doesn’t want “Things” in her muffins)
So… the muffins are for me….
And if you make them… they can be for you too.
Actually, these sweet tart muffins would be a fabulous addition to any potluck or buffet table during the holidays. The chopped up cranberries make a nice counterpoint to the sweet white chocolate… and the streusel on top makes me very very happy. You can drizzle more white chocolate on top if you want to gild the lily…(make them fancy)
