Sweet Butter / Filling (for Corn Muffins)

Colleen Sowa


This is a tradition for us every Halloween. We take these to church for the Chili Dinner before the kids "Trunk or Treat" event.
Trunk or Treat is what we "Mormons" do with our families, we fill the parking lot with the trunk end of the vehicles facing each other, then the children go from car trunk to car trunk in costumes to Trunk or Treat!

Like I said, first we all eat... Chili and corn breads and other goodies. We always bring this recipe, and it really makes an ordinary corn muffin into a real treat!

Hope you try this and love it as much as we do!
