Child’s Play! Sprinkle Muffins

Tuesdays are one of my very favorite days. Esther and Jacob come to play with me. Drawers are opened, cabinets cleaned out, car ‘noise’ buzzes down the halls, Sesame Street is back on the TV after a 20+ year absence. All of those activities are out of my realm of influence. But let’s get to the kitchen! Let’s see what is cooking today!
I asked Jacob… last week for Valentines’ Day we made a Rice Krispie heart. It was amazing. Almost as many sprinkles as marshmallows. But that was the beauty! It was a total Jacob creation.
Today it will be muffins. I was thinking, apple or peach, or berry. NO… Sprinkle muffins the chef said. So, chocolate sprinkle muffins are our new favorite!
