This would fit in the LAZY Saturday when the whole family is sacked out and you sneak into the kitchen to suprise everyone with sweet and mouth-watering smells that waft down the hall and into their bedrooms. Yep. This morning, you are SUPERMOM! And who knew it only took a muffin to gain you this glorious title? Or better yet, make them on Friday night so you can enjoy a few more cuddles with your hubby and kids on Saturday morning. Breakfast in bed is a cinch if you plan the night before!

Did I mention this muffin has chocolate chips? Mmmm…chocolate. Of course my toddlers call these cupcakes, and understandably so! These are much more than a muffin and to be called thus would be ever-so-wrong. But today, for your sake, we are calling them muffins.

Plus, there is a simple, secret ingredient you probably have in your pantry — if you’re a mom with kiddos. If you don’t have this ingredient, try switching it out for four tablespoons raspberry jam or 1 cup of fresh raspberries you have sweetened.

So, without further adieu, here’s the recipe and secret (Shhh!) ingredient. Ready?

Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
6 oz. raspberry-flavored jello
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup mixed berries(optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray, grease or line muffin pans. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, jello and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing just until incorporated, over-mixing creates less airy muffins. Fold in chocolate chips and mixed berries. Spoon into muffin cups and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Yields: 12 regular-sized muffins. Enjoy!
