Fuss-Free Mini Chocolate Chips Muffins

Sigh. There are really alot of things in life which we cannot control. Many unhappy things have happened over this long dreary weekend. I was forced to face with some real nasty situations which came very suddenly. Though expected, but never expect it to happen so fast, so quick. Hurt, betrayal, lies, anger, accusations ~ a bundle of all these emotions. Times and again, good advise have fallen on deaf ears. Yet when problems and troubles surfaced, I have to face it and live through it. Things have boiled to a stage where it can no longer be turned back. I tried, tried and tried. That many times is equivalent to that many disappointments. What can I do now ? ~ Nothing, nothing anymore. I no longer want to do anything for anybody anymore.
Fortunately, a long-time good friend came over. We even had a mini-baking session ! As it was her first baking session and she had really limited time, so I suggested something fast, simple and fuss-free ! Only 2 bowls were used, one for the dry and the other for the wet ingredients. Made cleaning up easy too ! We made some real moist and chocolately mini muffins. All thanks to Valrhona chocolate powder !
Coincidentally, the theme for Aspiring Bakers this month happened to be chocolate. I am so in time for this !
