Muffin Tin Meals are a great way to get a picky eater to try new foods.  Because they’re presented in small quantities and in a fun way, even the most reluctant eaters may be willing to try something different.

If you’ve followed our Muffin Tin Monday posts, you may have wondered where to find some of these cute muffin tin accessories –and where to get them for less. has a wide selection of silicone muffin cups, and they often go on sale (silicone muffin cups are a money-saving investment because they can be used over and over again).  This is a great option for those who live in rural areas or want the convenience of having them delivered directly to your home.  The silicone muffin cups shown above would be great for doing a color-themed muffin tin meal.

Muffin tins are a cornerstone for the Muffin Tin Meal.   These 6-hole muffin tins were found at The Dollar Tree.  At just a buck, you’ll be by purchasing them here.

Adorable silicone muffin cup liners make Muffin Tin Meals even MORE fun.  I found these in the cake decorating aisle of Michaels Craft Store.  Pair them with the 40% off coupons that frequently come out in the newspaper and online, and you’ll be able to get them for less.

Don’t forget the look for clearance stickers while you’re at Michaels.  You can often find muffin tin liners (both paper and silicone) in the clearance section.   Disposable muffin tin liners make for super-easy cleanup of Muffin Tin Meals.

Target also has silicone baking cups for Muffin Tin Meals in their seasonal department (as well as paper muffin cup liners too).  Watch for these to go on sale AFTER the holidays are over.  Read this article for the inside scoop on when Target does their holiday markdowns. Select silicone muffin cups can also be found in the $2.50 section of the Target Dollar Spot in select Target stores.

    Cost Plus World Market has silicone muffin liners 6/$3 for regular size and 12/$3 for the mini ones, in red, green and blue, plus stars and maybe other shapes.
    TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Ross also have some great finds, but they’re hit or miss. I got a set of 4 chicken-feet cups for $6, set of 12 light pink and blue circle cups for $5, plus an assortment of other fun stuff (like flower pot-shaped silicone cups!) But I stop in different ones if I have time and am nearby, so I may have only found one or two (sometimes no) items each visit.
    There’s an outlet mall near me with a Kitchen Collections store, and if you sign up for coupons through the mall, they offer a 20% off one item coupon, so I’ve found some super tiny liners there, plus fun cookie cutters I haven’t found elsewhere, and got an expensive Nordicware butterfly muffin tin with my coupon (on different trips. Bring a new coupon each time, or print extras and have my mom “buy” it for me.)
