Nutella Swirl Muffins and Shoutout to The Messy Baker

Nutella Swirl Muffins | Magnolia Days

Ever fall in love with a blog the moment you see it? That is what happened when I found The Messy Baker. Jennie is a kindred spirit in that she loves all food, especially sweets. Her blog is filled with recipes I want to try – both sweet and savory. Her photos are wonderful. I aspire to have that kind of talent.

Jennie is an avid blogger. She is a part of many blogging groups and communities. You can tell she has a love of food and wants to share her experiences with the world. She also shares her knowledge with her readers and fellow bloggers. Jennie is a sweet and giving person and I am honored to have her as a sponsor.

Want to know why I immediately loved “The Messy Baker” blog? The number one reason is the name. I smiled so big when it came up on the screen. I am a total messy baker. You can read about the mess I made while making pimento cheese balls. More proof is what actually happened while I made these muffins. It is what happens whenever I bake – a mess of flour and sugar all over the counter:

The nutella swirl muffins are scrumptious. Really, they are. I had this awful craving for chocolate. I did not have a Halloween candy stash to raid. I had a serious chocolate shortage going on here. I saw this recipe and had to make it. It also gave me the excuse to get more Nutella. Now I have these muffins and the extra Nutella. Chocolate craving status is now satisfied. Well, until it kicks in again.

You know you want the recipe. You can find it on The Messy Baker blog by clicking here → Nutella Swirl Muffins. Be sure to take the time to look around Jennie’s blog while you are there. Lots of good stuff to see. And you can follow Jennie and her blog on twitter, facebook, and Pinterest.
