A Perfect Valentine Dessert!

Matrimonial Bliss
Isn't this a cute little dessert? I found the recipe on and I'm so glad I tried it! It's called 'Matrimonial Bliss'...cute name too, right? I made it a few years ago for Valentine's Day! This is basically a very good fruity oatmeal muffin that I topped with melted white chocolate and 2 hearts carved out of strawberries! It was Valentine's Day, so I had to add hearts and chocolate!!!
This recipe is so very easy to make!
My hubby was very impressed!
If you like oatmeal cookies or muffins, then you'll love this dessert!
Matrimonial Bliss 
2/3 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup crushed walnuts
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of your favorite jam - I used strawberry
Optional - Strawberries carved into heart shapes and melted white chocolate. I used frozen whole strawberries, slightly thawed. Makes it easier to carve. Or decorate how ever you want. Get creative!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cupcake pan.You will only need to grease about 8 of the cups.
Place butter, brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, crushed walnuts, egg and baking soda in a bowl and mix well. Put 2/3 of the batter in the prepared muffin cups, then spread the jam over it.
Put the remaining batter over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 45 minutes.
Let cool completely before decorating.
Makes about 8 cupcake sized muffins.
