White Chocolate Berry Muffins.
These fruity muffins are a sweet delight for breakfast, an afternoon snack or anytime! Rasberries, blueberries, and melted white chocolate bits. Yum! I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to use up some frozen raspberries I had on hand, when I ran across this one. It’s an old Betty Crocker recipe I had in my book, but with a few changes.
Rasberries are always a treat, however they are served. Throw in the blueberries and you have another sweet, light flavor added to the mix. It’s a very tasty way to add the powerful nutrients of berries to your diet. The white chocolate melts it into a delicious, moist muffin.
If you use frozen fruit, it makes it easier to fold into the muffin mix, but I found it needed a longer cooking time. I’d watch closely for the last five minutes. They can be a little browner to be sure they are well set. I dabbed this batch with melted butter then sprinkled a little sugar on top. They’d be very pretty with a powdered sugar glaze on them too.
They definitely passed the taste test at our house. Hope you enjoy them too. I love to keep a batch in the freezer now so I can pull out one or two at a time.

Other Combinations You Can Try
Muffins offer so many options, don’t they? While I find the raspberry, blueberry, and white chocolate chip combination my favorite so far, think of all you can do with them…
- Leave out one of the berries
- Leave out the white chocolate chips
- Add blackberries or other favorite berries
- Substitute little chunks of cream cheese for the white chocolate chips
- Add cut up strawberries
- Use chopped apple or other fresh fruit instead of berries
- Add poppy seeds and some lemon juice
- Frost with powdered sugar/milk frosting
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar
Half the fun of making muffins is experimenting with different additions. I hope you will share what you like to add to yours in the comment below.
The Silicon Muffin/Cupcake Pan from OvenArt
This clever little silicone muffin tin saves time and clean up. Since cupcakes and muffins are a favorite to bake, I couldn’t wait to use the new silicone bakeware. It’s easy to clean, easy to use, and this one is BPA free–always a plus to me. An easy twist will help get the muffins out, with or without cupcake papers. They make so many products now in silicone that look so useful and easy to care for.
I can vouch for them myself. I don’t use muffin papers–my preference since the paper is often difficult to remove. A very light spray of olive or or another pan spray is all I use. They never stick. For some reason they are much easier to clean too.
Keep Berries Fresh Longer
Whenever I come to the fruit and berry section of the grocery store, I find it hard to resist the big containers of organic blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Once I get them home it can become a challenge to use them before they get too soft or mushy. These container really helped the berries last longer. They keep fruits and veggies so well! We use the large one to hold two types of lettuce, the red one for berries, and the third for carrots and celery. You can get them separately too if you prefer. The way it is designed, there is an area on the bottom that allows water and moisture to drip through, keeping the fruit and veggies dryer and fresher. You can remove the bottom cover to drain the water, without the fruit falling out. Very handy and effective. Only thing I don’t recommend is putting the lids in the dishwasher. Hand wash those parts and they will last you a long time.
