Last Day of School

Today is the last day daughter 2 has to go to school for the year-she finishes her exams so she doesn’t have to go back.  So of course she requested a sweet treat to celebrate, her favorite muffins Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip.  I mixed them up last night and stuck them in the fridge so when I got up all I had to do was scoop them into muffin tins and pop them in the oven.  By the time she left for school there were hot muffins! These muffins combine two favorites, peanut butter and chocolate chips and are scrumptious! They never last long around here because they also make an excellent after school snack.  Hope you enjoy this sweet morning treat as much as we do!
