Snickers Peanut Butter Muffins

Makes 12 muffins
Adapted from Nigella Lawson 

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
dash of salt
6 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
3 1/2 full-size (2.07 ounces each) Snickers bars, chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, blend together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the peanut butter and mix until downey with some pea-size crumbs interspersed. In a separate small bowl, mix together the milk, egg and melted butter. Gradually add this to the turning flour-peanut-butter mixture until just combined. Stir in the chopped Snickers bars with a big spoon.

Line 12-muffin cups with paper baking liners and spoon the batter evenly amongst the 12 muffins.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at which point the tops should be risen and golden brown with a firm-ish top. Cool in the muffing tin for 5-10 minutes and then remove the muffins to a wire rack to cool further if necessary.

Eat immediately. With a big glass of milk.
