  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 6 whole chives
  • 6 pretzel sticks
  • 3/4 cup miniature fish-shaped crackers
  • 1/3 cup spreadable chive and onion cream cheese


  1. Prepare corn bread batter according to package directions for muffins; stir in the cheddar cheese, jalapeno and minced chives.
  2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400° for 13-16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For fishing poles, tie one end of a piece of chive to each pretzel stick and the other end to a fish cracker. Spread muffin tops with cream cheese. Insert a fishing pole into each muffin. Place on a serving platter. Sprinkle remaining fish crackers on platter. Yield: 6 muffins.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"What a cute idea! This would be a fun to make with blue frosted cupcakes too. Pull and peel licorice could be used in place of the chives."
