I hope that everyone had as great of a Thanksgiving weekend as I did. I had the WHOLE WEEK off of babysitting and was able to spend time baking pies, making stuffing, decorating for Christmas, and hanging out with my family. I didn’t do Black Friday shopping this year, frankly it scares me. But I did participate in Small Business Saturday and a little bit of Cyber Monday. Who doesn’t like scoring awesome deals from the comfort of their couch while wearing pj’s?

Now I have to get back in the swing of things. Cleaning, changing diapers, chasing little kids around the house. Yesterday morning I had to re-decorate our tree so that NO ornaments were in reach of 1 1/2 year olds. At first Miss E and the little girl we babysit just took them off and put them back on. I was fine with a dozen plastic ornaments underneath the tree. Then the little girl that I watch (she is the same age as Miss E) decided it was fun to throw them on the kitchen flour to see if they bounce. And to bite them. They are supposed to be the un-shatterable kind, but I didn’t want to find out the hard way that they aren’t so up they went.
Today I did a bunch of shopping for food props, presents, and craft supplies. Now I’m exhausted! I just want to curl up on the couch, watch the newest episode of Witches of East End, and eat one of these muffins.

If you haven’t tried them, you really are missing out! Just one minor change from my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe… add chocolate chips and skip the frosting. Maybe that is 2 changes? Anyways these will be the best muffins you will ever eat, gluten-free or not. They taste just like those super yummy chocolate chocolate chip bakery muffins you can buy (like Otis Spunkmeyer.) Over the summer when I was running my GF baking company and selling at farmer’s markets these muffins were a big hit! They stay moist much longer than you’d expect for a gluten-free baked good, and they have great flavor and a nice crumb.

One of my readers wrote me last week and said that it was “our family’s tried-and-true best-ever, most successful gluten free cupcake recipe: your chocolate and salted caramel cupcakes. We now make this for every family birthday, and no one feels shortchanged. Hurray!”
I love hearing from my readers, and this particular email not only made my day, but also my week. If you try this recipe, or any others on my blog, I’d love to hear from you and know how it turned out. I write this blog for YOU, so thanks for commenting! ¬†

  • These muffins are best if enjoyed within 2-3 days. You can try freezing them, but I’ve found that it can dry them out a little.
  • If you do freeze them make sure to package them so that they are air tight to help prevent them from drying out.
