Cinnamon Toast Crunch Muffins and a Giveaway

Today, for my "recipe", I'm cheating.  That is ok, right?  Right!  I came across this Betty Crocker Cinnamon Toast Crunch muffin mix during my last grocery shopping trip at Uptown Grocery - my new favorite grocery store!  If you're local, you should definitely check it out! 

I had good intentions of getting up yesterday morning and making them...HOWEVER, I slept in, realized I forgot to soak my beans overnight for my ham and beans, had to do a "quick soak" which required the use of my favorite favorite favorite Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl because it can measure up to 8 cups, washed the batter bowl after using it, put it in my dish drain (ever so carefully balancing it on a towel over a dish drain already full of dishes...don't we all do this??), walk out of the kitchen, and hear glass shatter...EVERYWHERE!!!  Then 2 seconds later, I hear another shatter - which was a vase that I had just washed!  Do you sense my frustration?!?!?  Woe is me!!  I will be having a Pampered Chef catalog party soon so that I can get another batter bowl :)

Anyways...I made these for an after lunch snack and they were pretty darn tasty!  David and I pretty much ate the entire box ourselves ... I can't believe I just admited that...BUT I was really stressed from my morning mishaps that I *needed* the comfort!  We did save 4 muffins for our neighborhood/community manager (whatever his title is).  We like to take him treats every once in a while :)

We made coffee to go with the muffins and I added a little *extra* to mine :)  See my UV Cake Vodka in the back??  Love this's white cake flavored vodka..yummy!  I also made these root beer floats with it.

Linking up with Ali over at Jam Hands for her Recipe Sharing Monday!
