How to Bake Muffins With a Surprise Inside

By: Food Network Magazine

If you forgot the card this Mother's Day, you can bake your message into a muffin instead: Cut a thin strip of parchment paper, write a note with a nontoxic marker, then fold the note in half lengthwise (so the ink faces the inside). Fold it one more time and push it into the muffin batter, leaving the ends poking out; bake as usual.
