      These are so nifty! I liked how moist the muffins came out, and the added hint of orange was a nice compliment to the flavor. I did mine in the oven b/c I wanted to test them out before I went camping. My mom the picky eater loved them. What a great way to conserve clean dishes! Maybe I'll try mini-muffins in lemon halves next time. Thanks!

      These were excellent! The DH and I went camping with some friends and everyone was a little bit skeptic about how these muffins would turn out...but they were great! I juiced the oranges so we could have some fresh orange juice with breakfast, took out the pulp, and added Blueberry muffin mix and Chocolate Chip mix to the orange cups. They cooked up just fine over the campfire and the orange peel added just a hint of orange flavor. Great idea!

      Went camping this weekend and tried this. I don't have the spoon for scooping out the flesh, so I juiced the orange halves instead. I used 4 huge oranges to make 8 large muffins. I think next time I might prepare the oranges at home, to make for a quicker snack. Some baked 10 minutes and some longer. We ate it out of the oranges and it was a neat treat. Even the picky kids liked it.
