When do you usually start spring cleaning? Here in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house, we started this past week. Although it's not really not one of my favorite things to do, I always feel so much better after its all done! There's something about so freeing about getting rid of junk and having everything in a neat and orderly fashion.

While going through the pantry, I found some things I needed to plan on using soon. I hate to admit that I sometimes go overboard when I buy things .... especially if I can get them on sale. It's almost embarrassing. I found close to 20 boxes of cake mix .... who needs 20 boxes of cake mix?!

It had been awhile since I made muffins of any kind and I really wanted a little sweet breakfast treat. Digging through my recipe box looking for way to use up some cake mix (besides just baking a cake), I found my recipe for these Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Streusel. One reason I love these chocolate muffins is because they start with a boxed chocolate cake mix (which I had plenty of!!) and a box of instant chocolate pudding! They are super simple to mix up and you get that flavor punch of the double chocolate!

I especially love the streusel topping ..... it's a sweet, chocolate and cinnamon mixture that pairs well with the chocolate muffins! I think it adds that perfect little extra bit that sends these muffins over the top!

    3. I overbuy all the time too and then I forget I have things. I need to start grabbing things out of the cabinets and using them! These muffins sound like a great way to use up those cake mixes -- they look scrumptious!
