Failed muffins become fabulous balls
Pumpkin Muffin Balls
6 or 7 messed up pumpkin muffins, crumbled
1/4 cup Toffutti Better Than Cream Cheese
3/4 lb dark chocolate, cut into small pieces (I like the Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Pound Plus bars)
Mix the cream cheese into the muffin crumbles until it forms a thick dough (you may need to use your hands to get it really mixed). Form balls about an inch or an inch and a half in diameter and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.
In the meantime, melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or a bowl placed over a small saucepan). When the balls are ready, drop them into the chocolate one at a time. Use a fork or spoon to carefully take them out and place them back on the cookie sheet. If you want to make the pretty little squiggles, put any remaining chocolate in a plastic bag, snip off the corner and draw lines over the balls.
Note: If there's still some melted chocolate left, mix in some almonds, pretzels, peanuts, or Oreo pieces and drop in mounds onto a piece of parchment paper. Just don't let it go to waste!
Makes 19 or 20 kitten ear-sized balls
