Cinnamon-Chocolate Chip Muffins w/ Cream Chees Icing

Cinnamon-Chocolate Chip Muffins
Cream Cheese Icing

Buttery Cinnamon and Chocolate chip Muffins.. and if thats not enough, i topped them off with a little cream cheese icing! Unlike those muffins that when your done with the top your ready to toss out and start on another, these you can't stop till every last bite is devoured!

I combined a cinnamon swirl muffin mix i had with a cinnamon streusel coffee cake mix, just adding the ingredients as instructed on the back of the boxes. Then i added chocolate chips, and mine were normal semi-sweet, but i think this might have been the tiniest bit better with milk chocolate, mini chocolate chips, or even without. After that i took the streusel from one box and put it on the top. I then added a little slice of butter, and then the crumble topping from the other recipe, and cooked them at 350 until they looked lightly brown and i could stick a toothpick in and it come out clean. I had a little cream cheese icing left from another recipe, so i just drizzled it on top, not totally necessary, but it added a finished look, and tasted just that much more amazing. An easy recipe, that wasn't very time consuming, but was definitely a crowd pleaser, and as far as muffins go, ranked above the rest!

Tip: Make sure and use muffin cups, just greasing the pan isn't the best idea for this recipe, i tried it both ways, and muffin cups are the better way to go!
