White Chocolate Chips, Cherries & Cranberries Muffin

After School Snack & Dessert: 6-Jun-2011

So I've bought a huge bag of dried cranberries & a big bag of dried cherries from Costco on my first trip.. (oh & yes, decided join the Costco membership...) & have been wondering what to do with both bags... apart from just chomping them straight... so I decided to browse through google & found this recipe... silly me though forgot to note down the website it came from & as such, I can't remember where it originated from... so sorry about that... I think it might have been a emmm forum of some sort though for the life of me, I can't remember which forum it could be... *sigh*

2 cups plain flour
2/3 cups raw caster sugar
3 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup white chocolate chips
