Banana Choco-Toffee Mini Muffins Inspired By Dr Seuss
Banana Bread Bread Muffins Only Get Better
In general, my family lovesbanana bread so, these muffins weren’t a vast stretch for us. I had considered adding chocolate chips to banana bread batter before but, not both toffee and chocolate. When making these, I found that for the best results, I prefer making these muffins the day they’ll be served to maintain the caramelized top and the soft center. They pack-up beautifully and kids of all ages love them. Another flavor we love are these Mini Crumb Cake Bites from Crazy For Crust.
