Moist, yummy muffins! I was wondering how the cocoa puffs would end up after being baked in a muffin--they were chewy, and the flavors blended well with the muffin. I also thought the addition of peanut butter to the batter would be good, so to half of the batch I added some and those were tasty too. If you're feeling like chocolate and pb, give it a try! I recommend 1/4 pb for a whole batch.
