Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

These simple chocolate chip muffins are easy to make and it’s totally delicious.  These chocolate chip muffins add chocolate chips to a moist and buttery, vanilla scented muffin batter.  The final touch is to sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar for a more flavourful taste.  Bake this for my nephew’s son birthday party and it was a hit among the guests and family members. It has now become a household item in family gatherings. My nephew, Lucas commented that it’s quite like the one sold in Starbucks …  only in a smaller size!
