When I was about 12, I found this Valentine’s Day Muffin recipe in a Family Fun magazine. It’s now available on Spoonful instead. It became a Valentine’s Day Tradition to make these muffins, we called them Sealed With A Kiss Muffins. Lately I haven’t called them that because instead of using Chocolate kisses I use whatever chocolate I have around- this year it was “Gold Doubloons” as my son calls them- the gold coin chocolates that we received from someone for the holidays.
- 1/2 Cup butter
- 1 1/2 Cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 Cup milk
- 1 lb strawberries, fresh or defrosted frozen
- 4 Cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. baking powder
- Chocolate Kisses, Chips or any other form of chocolate
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and then add the milk.
- Rinse strawberries and cut off the stems. Mash them or puree them in a blender. Stir them into the egg and milk mixture.
- In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder. After it is well mixed, add the bowl of dry ingredients to the original mixture. Stir it in until everything is moist.
- Grease your muffin tins (or use paper liners), and add the batter until each cup is half full. Put your chocolate kiss on top, then finish filling the muffin cup with batter.
- Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes, use a toothpick to test them (just be sure not to put it in the chocolate). The toothpick should come out clean.
We love these muffins- but they are a treat that only happens once a year, so it makes them a bit more special!
