A drizzle of white chocolate on top gives these Orange Brunch Muffins just the right amount of sweetness to make them a true treat. Serve them for a quick morning bite or pass them around as an appetizer for a hearty brunch.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
