Cinna-Minis are a Yummy Sweet Party Treat for the Kids

Here is fun recipe for Mini Cinnamon Muffins which have been nicknamed Cinna-Minis. These are a perfect bite size Buttery Cinnamony treat the kids will love and great for your next party. So let me share the recipe and how EASY they are to make.

This was another fun dessert my Sista Peep found that we tested out the other night and they were Delicious. My daughter also helped in making them, but had a hard time controlling herself from eating them before they got onto the plate – lol.  These Cinna-Minis are a small treat that have just the right amount of sweetness in a mouth sized treat and Oh so YUMMY.

So here is what you will need to make these Cinna-Minis:

  • 1/3 Cup Shortening
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup Melted Butter or Margarine

Heat oven to 350. Spray or grease mini muffin pan.

Mix Shortening, 1/2 cup Sugar, and Egg thoroughly.  Mix Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, and Nutmeg; stir into egg mixture alternately with milk.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix Sugar & Cinnamon in a bowl. Melt Butter in a separate bowl.

Roll hot muffin immediately in melted butter (definitely use a utensil to do this – we used Forks), then in Cinnamon & Sugar mixture.  Serve hot, but cold is still just as yummy.

While your Mini Muffins are still warm have a Bowl with your Melted Butter and then one with your Cinnamon & Sugar ready for coating. Get a fork and grab a Mini Muffin from the bottom and dip into the butter and coat and then do the same in your Cinnamon & Sugar. That is it !!!

Now here is my daughter’s version of how that goes….  Dip into Butter, then Cinnamon & Sugar, place into mouth and lick fingers !! lol

Good thing My Sista Peep and I were helping during this or we would have never seen any get on the plate for the rest of us.

Put these out at your next Party and watch the kids gobble them up and if you are quick you might be able to grab one too. They would also be great for a Sleepover Party Breakfast too !!

Enjoy – I know we did.

    Since I mixed up the batter @ my place, I put it into a zip-top bag and brought it over to bake up after dinner.
    I cut off a corner and was able to “squeeze” the batter into the muffin pan!! I can believe I never thought of this before!!! EASY!!!!!!
    You can do them regular muffin size too…….But the proportion of muffin to sugar coating is PERFECT on the mini!!!!
