  1. I was actually going to ask where you got the little balls they were photographed on so thanks for answering, I think I’m going to have to pick some of those up and make some of the muffins for Thanksgiving weekend. They look incredible! Love being part of this blog hop with you.

    • SweetWorks are the best! they come in a ton of colors so you can find the perfect one for pretty much any holiday or event!

  2. These look aaahhh-mazing! This is a great alternative to pie for Thanksgiving. I was thinking along similar lines with my latest post about an alternative to pumpkin pie. I’m pinning this. I found you from Play. Party. Pin’s blog.

  3. I love pecan pie but I’ve never tried it as a muffin – there’s a first time for everything and I will surely need to try these. They look delicious! :)

  4. These sound totally delicious! I rarely bake with pecans, I should try it. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I absolutely love this idea. Wanted to pin it to my board and can’t figure out how to do that. Driving me crazy. After about 2 hours of having way too much fun on Pinterest as a result of following you and other bloggers on this post, I am giving up. Help. Thanks to for sharing.
