It`s strawberry season! I`m definitely one of those people who love fruits in their desserts. Muffins are considered breakfast food, but since it`s sweet and baked, I often eat them as a dessert as well. To me, muffins are quick breads, like banana bread, in individual serving sizes. Haha. Sure, they`re not as dense and the texture is different to loaf breads, but since they`re usually quick and easy to make, I enjoy baking them often.
The strawberry and banana combo is a popular favorite. I love the combination myself, so I wanted to combine the same flavors in muffin form. I also, always "happen to have" (read: I always make SURE I have) Biscoff spread in my pantry...I so knew it`ll be a great addition to the strawberry and banana combo flavor.

One day I was shopping at Target, walking down the baking aisle, and this caught my eye. It was a box mix for cookie brownies. I was like, "whatttt?" I thought the idea was similar to something I`ve seen before... So, I resisted buying the box mix because I thought I`ll just recreate it at home.
I did! :) When I started to do more research on it, I realized this was going to be hard...because most chocolate chip cookie recipes have a shorter baking time compared to brownies. I was stumped. But, I didn`t let it get to me and decided to try it out anyways.

I`m sure by now most of you know what a Zoku quick pop maker is? I always thought it was super cool, especially when it first came out and I saw popsicle recipes pop up everywhere. It wasn`t something I had to, HAD to have. But, would LOVE. That kind of thing. Haha.
Luckily for me, my awesome roommate gave me one for Christmas! It made me excited about all the ideas and flavor combinations I could make using it. I don`t have a popsicle mold, so I never made any popsicles before.

I tell people I don`t bake cake (including cupcakes) or eat them often, but it seems like I`m being contradictory lately with this post and my 1 year anniversary post. I`ll just like to say that for special occasions and reasons, I lean towards baking cakes. :)
My excuse for baking these chocolate cupcakes is because of my little! If you`re confused, let me back up. I`m in a national honor fraternity at my university and just like other sororities and fraternities, we have bigs and littles. Last quarter, I was able to pick up my first little! And what better way to welcome my little into the fraternity than cupcakes?

The name of these cookies seem like a mouthful, but it`s only because they are so wonderful. :) Haha. I`m definitely posting this week later than I had planned. I`m on my second week of my last quarter of college and it`s been pretty busy with my fraternity`s rush events, so I`m sorry!! It`s ending this week, so the craziness will end soon. My Google Reader is telling me I have about 650 unread posts of blogs I follow. I am definitely behind, which makes me sad, because I miss reading the wonderful blogs I follow!
I love Biscoff spread. I have so many Biscoff recipes saved in my bookmarks, it`s crazy. Since my last Biscoff treat was so delicious, naturally, I wanted to try making more desserts/goodies using the delicious spread. There have been lots of Biscoff cookies recipes out there, but I wanted to try making my own. I can happily say, these were a success! They took a few tries and I`ll definitely keep working on them, but I think they`re definitely blog worthy right now. :)
