We are always suckers for cute and tiny foods, but this back-to-school season we’ve got a serious hankering for savory edibles in fun, petite packages–ones, say, we might easily slip into lunch boxes or eat as snacks on the go. The muffin tin to the rescue! In addition to being fantastic for, well, making muffins and cupcakes (as well as molding enormous ice cubes, freezing servings of soup, and dyeing eggs, to name just a few other talents), muffin tins are excellent vehicles for the creation of the most adorable–and often portable–kid- and adult-friendly foods ever. Here, 17 fun dishes made in a muffin (or mini-muffin) tin. Serve them at brunch or as hors d’oeuvres, tuck them into lunch boxes, or take ’em on the road!
