Easter Muffins!

Um....I need one of these. Now. Right now. I have to admit, Easter candy is one of my weaknesses and every time I go to the drug store lately, I am confronted with it! Cadbury Creme Eggs happen to be one of my favorites and this is just too decadent. Delicious Easter candy encapsulated in a carbohydrate - does it get any better? I will probably be staying away from this recipe because I am currently in diet mode, but if any of you would like to attempt it, the recipe is below. Let me know how it turns out!

Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
12 mini Cadbury creme eggs (not full size)

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, melted butter and vanilla until smooth. Whisk in milk.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just combined and no streaks of flour remain. Evenly distribute muffin batter into prepared pan. Place 1 mini Cadbury creme egg in the center of each muffin. You can use a small knife to pull a bit of batter over the top of the mufin, if you like.
Bake for 14-16 minutes, until the top of the muffin springs back when lightly pressed and the edges are a light gold.
Cool on a wire rack before slicing.

Makes 12.
