Loaded Butterfinger Banana Muffins

It's been quite some time since I've made some muffins.  What's up with that?  Well, have no fear I've got a muffin recipe to share with you today.  And I must say, it's the muffin of all muffins!  It's got bananas, candy bars and chocolate chips.  Ummm, yeah.  It's got it all! 

Now, before I go any further let me tell you this.  I don't serve breakfasts with candy in it on a regular basis, but I am a firm believer that it's quite alright...even necassary to indulge from time to time.  And what better way to indulge than a delicious, moist muffin packed full of chocolate and Butterfinger?  I'm tellin' ya, I don't think there's too many things that are better than this. 

This muffin starts out with a banana bread type base that is delicious, moist and amazing on it's own.  Then the flavor is amped up by  the addition of not only chocolate chips, but crushed Butterfingers!  Tell me that doesn't sound awesome. 

Peanut butter, bananas and chocolate are made for each other.  So they were destined to be combined to make an amazingly, delicious muffin.  Most people like muffins, but everyone likes candy so everyone will love these muffins.  Seriously, who wouldn't want a moist, mini "cake" packed with candy and chocolate?  So, surprise your family with some of these muffins this weekend, it's the perfect way to start off a Saturday!
