Mummy Muffins
1 recipe crumb topping (see below)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 Oreo cookies, cut in quarters
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 egg
1 cup 1% milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup white chocolate chips
1-2 teaspoons shortening
24 butterscotch chips

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Butter or line 12 cup muffin tin, set aside. Prepare crumb topping below and set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa, and salt; mix well. Stir in quartered or coarsely chopped cookies and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk.

Add liquid and melted butter to dry mixture, stir just until mixed. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Sprinkle approximately 1 tablespoon crumb topping on top each muffin. Bake 15-18 minutes or until done. Cool 5 minutes then remove from pan to finish cooling.

Combine white chocolate chips and 1-2 teaspoons shortening; slowly melt chips (in microwave on defrost, stirring every 10 seconds; heavy pan on simmer; or in top of double boiler). Drizzle melted chips over muffins. Place 2 butterscotch chips on each muffin for eyes.


Rich and tasty, perhaps this should be called a cupcake rather than a muffin. Whether you use it as a dessert or Halloween treat it’s a fun recipe. Makes 12 muffin/cupcakes
