NOTE: To manage lactose restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk in any recipe. Our Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk has a sweeter profile than regular Evaporated Milk, so you may notice a slightly sweeter profile to your recipe. To manage dairy restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Almond Cooking Milk in any recipe. Some recipes, such as our Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie, turn out best with a different amount of Almond Cooking Milk. Please check our Alternative Milk Recipes page for recipes that have been specifically tailored for alternative milk usage.

PREHEAT oven to 350º F (325º F for convection ovens). Grease a (12 hole) muffin tin and set aside.

CUT each biscuit into 6 pieces. Fold each piece around 3 Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels.

MIX granulated sugar, 1 ½ teaspoons nutmeg and cinnamon together in a bowl. Toss biscuit pieces into the sugar-spice mixture to coat evenly.

COMBINE butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons Carnation® Evaporated Milk, vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon nutmeg in a small pot. Place over low heat and stir occasionally until everything is melted. Remove from heat.

PLACE 4 biscuit pieces in each muffin tin space. Pour a small spoonful of butter mixture over, then add 4 more biscuit pieces, and another spoonful of butter. Repeat until muffin tin is full (each muffin should have a total of 8 biscuit balls).

BAKE for 12–14 minutes, (placing a tray underneath to catch butter drips) until muffins are golden brown and dough is cooked through. Remove from oven. Let cool in the muffin tin, then remove.

PLACE remaining 1/2 cup Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, 1/2 cup Carnation® Evaporated Milk, remaining 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small pot over low heat. Stir occasionally until chocolate melts into a sauce. Drizzle over muffins and serve!
