7 Genius Ways To Transform Your Muffin Tin Into The Ultimate Kitchen Tool

Since the beginning of time (allegedly), people have been using muffin tins to make cupcakes and muffins. The smart home cooks eventually realized the tins were far more useful than their surface appearance: they’re slick conduits for bowl-shaped foods, organizers for condiments, snacks and decorations, and even the perfect fit for stemless wine glasses, pints of beer and paper coffee cups. Here are 7 things to make with a muffin tin that will have you doing a double-take at the ubiquitous bakeware.

1. Ice Cream Topping Sorter

Place your ice cream toppings where you’d otherwise put muffin mix to create a DIY sundae topping buffet.

2. Cookie Bowls

Just invert your muffin tin, slap on some cookie dough over the mounds to create the “bowl” effect, and bake! Next thing you know, you’ll have your own individual edible ice cream bowls.


3. Wine Glass Holder

Better than coasters.

4. Make No-Bake Nut Butter Cups

Not all muffin tin recipes need to go in the oven. Here’s a superfoods version that uses almond butter and raw chocolate. Perfect for vegans and those who have nut allergies.

5. Tortilla Cups

Similar to the cookie bowls, this tortilla cups are placed between the spaces of an inverted muffin tin. The recipe could not be simpler.

6. Hard Boil Eggs In The Oven

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put 1 egg in each of 12 muffin cups. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Plunge baked eggs in a large bowl filled with ice water until cooled completely, about 10 minutes.

7. Chocolate Fondue

Okay, so it’s not the most romantic thing alive, but your kids will love it! Or your college roommate.
