Snickers and Peanut Butter Muffins

It's finally Friday, and I think we could all use something sweet at end of the week. I know I certainly can! Despite one of my commenters pointing out that Swedes are prone to complaining about everything, I'll take my chances - it's been a really rough week, and I'm glad it's almost over. Anyway. For something sweet then: let's go for this admittedly childish combination, but come on - Snickers and peanut butter? It's got to taste good. And so it does. This is a Nigella recipe, but I'm not sure where it's been published. I found it over at the forums at Nigella's Kitchen. Like all muffins, they're a breeze to make. And don't worry, they really aren't as sweet as they look. (But for a gooey interior pic - click here.)

Snickers and Peanut Butter Muffins
Adapted from Nigella Lawson
Makes 12 regular size muffins

1 2/3 cups flour (4 dl)
6 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
6 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (55 gram)
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk (1.8 dl)
3 normal size Snickers bars, chopped
12-cup muffin pan with paper baking cups

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. (200 C) Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the peanut butter and mix. Add the melted butter and egg to the milk, and then stir this into the bowl. Mix in the Snickers pieces and spoon into the muffin cups.

Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the muffins are fluffy and golden. Let them cool on a wire rack. (But be sure to have a warm one too, with a glass of milk.)

I own Nigella's HTBADG. This recipe is taken from that book.

I've always wanted to make this muffin. But I'm quite skeptical whether it's going to be too sweet.

Now I'm gonna make those, since you had them with success and that they were very good and not overly sweet.
