I’m getting ready to go to Girls Camp on Tuesday where I will be the cook. I just made 3 batches of these muffins for the girls for their Saturday morning sack breakfast for the bus ride home. I’m going to put them in the freezer and have my friend Teresa bring them up on Friday night when she comes up for dinner. These are easy to make, taste yummy and freeze really well. I’m pretty sure I got this recipe from “101 Things to do with a Cake mix” by Stephanie Ashcraft.
1 chocolate fudge cake mix (I used Devil’s Food this time)
1 small box chocolate instant pudding mix (for those of you who live near me and grocery shop at Maceys, in the baking aisle they have a grocery cart full of Nelsons brand chocolate pudding mix on sale 10 boxes for $1, only .10 a box! great deal and when you use them in a recipe like this, who cares what brand the mix is!)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (I usually leave this out because I want the straight up chocolate taste)
3/4 cup chocolate chips, frozen (I don’t usually bother to freeze mine)
Heat oven to 350. Grease pan or use paper muffin liners. Mix together all ingredients except chips until smooth then stir in chips. Fill cups 3/4 full. Bake 23 – 33 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
