Canada Day is just around the corner! This year is extra special because Canada is turning 150!
I recently posted a photo of the Moose Tracks ice cream cone I had last summer in Canada. It’s a combination of vanilla ice cream, peanut butter cups, and chocolate fudge. It’s definitely in my top 3 favorite ice cream flavors. Since I don’t have an ice cream maker, I decided to make Moose Tracks muffins. These peanut butter cup muffins are fluffy and full of the original ice cream flavor!
I had to start by making peanut butter cups since my local grocery stores don’t carry them, but no need to do so if you can find them around you. Although, the homemade peanut butter cups were amazing. So good that a couple of them ended up in my mouth before I baked my muffins. I had to make sure they were safe to eat, right?
After the muffins bake up, leave them in the pan for a couple minutes before putting them on a wire rack to cool completely. You’ll want them cooled so your chocolate sauce doesn’t melt off.
Moose Tracks ice cream has fudge rippled through the vanilla ice cream, but I went with a quick and easy chocolate sauce drizzled on top. It helps to do this on a wire rack with some aluminum foil or plastic wrap underneath to minimize the mess.
I had to feature my mini bamboo cutting board for this post. I bought it at the Old Country Market in Coombs, where I had the Moose Tracks ice cream. Yes, it says “Goats on Roof”. There were actual goats living on the roof. I kid you not.
These peanut butter cup muffins are fluffy, and when you bite into those peanut butter cups… oh man.
Moose Tracks isn’t actually Canadian, but it reminds me of my trip to Canada. Plus, I highly doubt any Canadian is going to complain about peanut butter cup muffins. My Canadian husband sure didn’t have a problem eating these.
