Caramel Sticky Date Muffins


I am a self-confessed caramel addict.  Caramel Koalas, Caramello Chocolate, Curley Wurleys, jersey caramels, Snickers Bars, toffees and the like make me swoon.  In keeping with my love of caramel, I was stoked to find Nestle now makes caramel flavoured choc bits for baking (if you don't eat them out of the bag first).

Because I like to be different, I didn't just want to make caramel choc chip cookies, so I hunted around for an alternative recipe using caramel bits.  I was handsomely rewarded when I found this recipe for caramel sticky date muffins
Seriously, what's not to like?  Moreishly sweet dates, caramel bits and a lovely caramel flavour.  These went pretty fast at work, so I think I'm not the only one who liked these.
If you are looking for a lunchbox treat that is just a little different, these muffins could be for you.

I never used to think I was a fan of caramel til my blog made me reflect on lots of my favourite sweet things and found it wasn't just chocolate but caramel as well - so I am with you and think these sound fantastic

Those caramel bits are great and I have to say the caramel bit biscuits are very delicious, but the muffins are inspired!!

I love caramel too! I'll often choose it in place of chocolate if something is chocolate flavoured. Although nothing beats actual chocolate :P

These are definitely much better than basic muffins with caramel chips! They are appealing in their own right, but these sound really lovely.
