These tasty little muffins are great as a snack any time, not just for entertaining. Normally vegan cheese doesn't go over too well, but because it is baked into the muffins, it simply lends a great flavor without imparting any odd texture.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cheese and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in flour, sour cream, baking powder and chives. Mixture will be very thick.
Spoon batter into ungreased mini muffin pans, filling 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Remove muffins from pans immediately. Serve warm, gently reheating if necessary.
