Orange Brunch Muffins
A drizzle of white chocolate on top gives these muffins just the right amount of sweetness to make them a real breakfast treat. Serve them for a quick morning bite, or pass them around as an appetizer for a hearty brunch.
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
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 (12-ounce) package or 2 cups white chocolate chips, divided use
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts of walnuts
