Ok guys, I actually got creative the other day. I had some strawberries that were calling my name from inside my refrigerator and I just couldn’t help myself, I had to reach in, grab those bad boys and give them the love that they needed. Because we all know that strawberries are full of love to give!!

Who doesn’t love muffins? I’m a big muffin fan, but obviously the tops of those lovely things are where it’s at! Crunchy, soft and sugary…ugh, yum! So, hence these Chocolate Strawberry Muffin Tops were born. But since I don’t have one of those fancy muffin top pans, I improvised! I baked them in lovely little mason jar lids! You guys, it was awesome!

Ingredients
  1. 6 Tbs butter, melted
  2. 1/3 cup milk
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 tsp vanilla
  5. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 3/4 cup sugar
  7. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  8. 3/4 tsp salt
  9. 1 cup diced strawberries
  10. 1 cup chocolate chips, milk or semi-sweet
Streusel Topping
  1. 2 Tbs butter, melted
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 4 Tbs flour
  4. Dash of cinnamon
Glaze
  1. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1-2 tbs milk
  3. 1 tsp vanilla
  4. Decorators sugar (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Using 12 (8 oz) mason jar lids, turn the metal piece so the plastic rim is facing down. Spray inside and out with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In bowl mix together your butter, milk, egg and vanilla and set aside.
  4. In another bowl mix together your flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and stir until combined.
  5. Stir in your milk mixture until blended.
  6. Fold in your strawberries and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  7. To make your streusel topping combine all ingredients until crumbly, set aside.
  8. Distribute batter evenly among mason jar lids making sure too not fill too full or it will overflow which is fine, but makes them harder to remove from lids.
  9. Sprinkle each with streusel topping and sprinkle with decorators sugar.
  10. Bake in preheated oven for 35-20 minutes or until golden brown and they spring back when touched.
  11. To make your glaze combine all ingredients in small bowl and whisk together, drizzle over tops of muffin tops.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
  1. Don't overfill or they will spill over sides of lids which makes removal harder, just make sure to spray outside of lids to ensure easier removal if this happens.
  2. You may have a little remaining batter, that's ok! Just grab another lid or two and add it to that!
  3. We found our decorators sugar at Walmart in the baking aisle next to the sprinkles.

  1. Yes please! I adore the idea of baking these in lids! Brilliant! The flavor combo sounds so tasty. I have always favored muffins. Thanks for a terrific recipe. And for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck.

  2. Love these….it is the best part of the muffin,,,,this way you can have 2 of these instead of one muffin…..does anyone know how to make sure they come out of the moon lid instead of sticking ?…..

    1. Thanks so much!! I liberally spray my lids outside and inside with non-stick cooking spray. The good thing is that the little tin pieces around the lid are not attached so I push them out with that. Some may crust over the side but usually it’s good releasing and if you don’t overfill not much will spill over. But cooking spray or butter or whatever your choice of greasing agent is highly recommended.

  3. What a great idea to use mason jar lids to make muffin tops – how creative! The chocolate strawberry combination is already enticing enough, but that streusel?! YUM.

  4. These sound delicious! I can’t wait to try them. I am assuming that you meant 1 cup of strawberries, not 1 tsp. You can’t go wrong with chocolate and strawberries!

    1. Ahhhh thank you so much for pointing out my error in the recipe Sheri! I have it changed now! And thank you so much for your kind words, I hope you do try them, we loved them and they were fun for my kids!
