Kitchen 101: Peanut Butter Puff Muffins

Monday, I took a trip to a grocery store to pick up some supplies for this week’s Kitchen 101. Initially, I planned a tasty, savory dish. But after stumbling past a box that read “Reese’s Muffin Mix,” everything changed.

If you know me, you know that I love to eat peanut butter. You would also know that I love to “eat” muffins. I said “eat” because they tend to simply disappear around me. When you put those two things together, you might as well clear my schedule for the night because things are going to get crumbly.

If you can’t find this particular muffin mix in your local store, add ½ cup of Reese’s peanut butter to a box of regular muffin or brownie mix. If you’re in a dorm, you can make these 1 at a time using a mug and a microwave.
