White Chocolate Macadamia Muffins

Note: We love muffins. They are so quick and easy for breakfast and quick to grab after school for a snack. The boys were quite thrilled with this new muffin recipe because we are all fans of white chocolate macadamia cookies.

White Chocolate Macadamia Muffins

1 3/4 C All Purpose flour
3/4 C sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 C milk
1/4 C butter, melted
3/4 C vanilla or white chips
3/4 C chopped macadamia nuts

1/2 C vanilla or white chips
2 T heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400*. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in the chips and nuts. Fill paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 15-18 minute or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

For glaze: In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chips with cream; stir until smooth. Drizzle over warm muffins.
