Kids will love these breakfast bears. A spice cake mix baked in a muffin tin turns into a bear when you add pear ears and a chocolate chip nose. They make great snacks too.
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with baking wrappers. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, the water, orange juice, eggs and oil until smooth. Spoon batter into prepared cups until they're about 3/4 full.
2. Trim a half inch from the pointed end of each pear slice. Insert the trimmed, flat ends of 2 slices into each muffin cup, leaving the tops of the pears exposed. Pretending the muffin is a clock, insert them at about 11:00 and 1:00.
3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the muffin tops spring back when you touch them. Let cool 5 minutes in the pan; remove muffins and place them on wire racks. While they're slightly warm, add almond slivers and chocolate chips to create the bear's face.
