I’m always looking for a new recipe to try to impress my family during holidays. We recently received recipe cards for Pumpkin Muffins with American Heritage Cream Cheese Frosting from American Heritage at Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop. Perfect, just what I wanted, something sweet and delicious.
I ran out to the store and picked up a pumpkin bread and muffin mix. Yes, I could have made the muffins from scratch, but why would I do that when I can have the mix whipped together and in and out of the oven in less than a half an hour!
While the muffins were cooking, I started the frosting
American Heritage Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. Cream Cheese
2 1/2 Cups Sugar
3/4 stick butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Cup American Heritage Drink Mix
In a mixer, blend the butter, sugar and cream cheese until smooth. I like to remove the bowl from the mixer and scrap the frosting mix back down to the bottom of the bowl a couple of times to get the sugar, butter and cream cheese a nice creamy consistency . Blend in the vanilla and add the American Heritage Chocolate Drink. Frost muffins once they are cool.
The oversweet frosting with the American Heritage deep chocolate flavor plus the pumpkin undertones is a delicious combination.
To your family, from ours at Captain Jackson’s, set a place for gratitude, serve up smiles, and share memories with the people you love!
