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!

How to Make Sweet Butter / Filling (for Corn Muffins)


  1. Mix together your favorite recipe for corn muffins.
  2. Put Halloween cup cake liners in pan.
  3. Fill Halloween cup cake liners 3/4 full with batter and bake according to recipe directions.
  4. Cool corn muffins and put into a carrier or box until ready to fill and top.
  5. Cream Cheese at room temperature in a mixing bowl.
  6. Add room temperature Butter to mixing bowl and cream together well.
  7. Add Honey and mix together well.
  8. Slowly add Powdered Sugar until thick like frosting.
    You may add a bit of water or honey if needed.
  9. When this cream cheese / butter mixture is ready, Load a cookie press or pastry bag with a large star tip.
  10. Push the tip into each muffin to inject the filling. As you pull the tip out of muffin, keep pressing filling out making a swirl on top of muffin.
  11. Place a Halloween decoration on top. I get the cupcake liners and decorations in one package at the Dollar Tree store.
  12. I like to put a few different kinds of decorations on top because they are so cute!
  13. Put the carrier lids on when the finished muffins are ready to be set aside.
  14. I buy the carriers at the Dollar Store... and we use a lot of them... this is just one stack.
    Then we are safe to travel to church or picnics.

    We make this on other occasions and holidays, and we use this for other recipes too.
