This recipe came from the fabulous blogging kitchen of Cookin’ Up Good Times.
We decided to do a recipe exchange– they tried one of my recipes, and I tried one of theirs.
I learned three very important things from this experience:
1) Recipe exchanges are fun. 
You make new friends and get to try new recipes. Fun.
2) You don’t want to do a recipe exchange with me. 
Apparently it takes me about 8 years to get my post up.
3) It seems I have a knack for adding calories. 
My new friends created a lightened up version of my Samoas Dip (who knew that was possible??),
and I added white chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting to their Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread.
This quick bread recipe transitioned wonderfully to muffin form.
They’re ooey, gooey, and wonderfully sticky!
