Banana-chip cupcakes

Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? Try one of these-mini banana cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

Ingredients

For the cupcakes:

For the frosting:

  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • ½ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

For the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the muffin mix, water, sour cream, and egg; stir until just moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Fill a greased or paper-lined miniature muffin pan two-thirds full with the batter. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring the cupcakes from the pans to a wire rack to cool.

For the frosting:

In a microwave, melt the shortening and chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Allow the frosting to cool for at least 5 minutes. Using a rubber spatula coat the tops of the muffins with a layer of frosting. 

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
