These mini muffins are so sweet they might end up being the <em>apple</em> of your eye

A good snack to keep on hand, these mini muffins can be stored at room temp for a few days or frozen so you can have them whenever you need them.

If muffins are frozen, thaw at room temperature, and then refresh muffins by placing them on a rimmed baking sheet and warming them in a 300-degree oven for about 10 minutes. It’s just that easy!

Fun fact! The oldest apple

There are many kinds of apples — from McIntosh to Pink Lady, Fuji to Golden Delicious. Which ones are your favorites? “Heirloom” apples are apples that have been grown for more than 50 years. The oldest kind of apple, the Decio, is from Italy. It dates back more than 1,500 years — a long time ago! A Roman general named Ezio supposedly took it with him as he chased Attila the Hun.
