I top mine with pickles and a drizzle of barbecue sauce but they’re great with tomato slices or dipped in ketchup or mustard! My kids prefer these over store bought Pizza Pops and to be honest, I love that they’re easily made from scratch!

This looks delicious. My grandchildren will love these.5 stars

Found this on pinterest – are these mini muffins are normal size?

I’d love to try this recipe (mini-muffin size) for a summer party but would need to make a day or so ahead of time. They would be reheated just before serving. Any ideas why this shouldn’t work? Thanks!

It’s like muffin hihi cute

Can these be baked & then frozen? With only 2 folks it makes more than we could/should eat!!

Made these tonight with the grandkids (4 & 5). We all had fun and they’re enjoying them now.

These are amazing!!!!
