Recently, my kids were craving for Chocolate Muffins. Our trips to the market had been on a weekly basis just to get the choco-muffin-cravings satisfied. Until finally, my son suggested to make it instead. I thought it was a great idea, since they can bake with me anyways. Glad I have easy access of my recipes on my phone. So we shopped for the needed ingredients instead and started the ball rolling.
My only mistake is not planning ahead how to blog about this. So I'm missing the important aspect of this.....pictures while baking with the kids. I'll keep that in mind next time. Anyway, my 8-year old son took the task of adding all ingredients, while my 4-year old daughter happily mixed. I did all the measurements, cracked the eggs, and read the directions out loud. Gavin lined the muffin pans, as I scooped the batter onto it. My daughter licked clean all the utensils (",). Not sure if that's even a good idea, I mean the licking part. But if that would make her happy, so be it!
The ingredients yielded 48 mini muffins. Yup! 48 mini muffins for my kiddos to gobble up. That I think is not the best idea of all. So I suggested if we could share some to school. Two trays (24 pieces) to Gavin's 3rd grade class, and one tray (12 pieces) to Adrianna's preschool. And one tray to stay at home. NO DEAL!! They both wanted to keep it and store till the last bite. I guess I would have to schedule playdates (lots of it!) to help finish up what we've made. Good idea!!

More frosting creations of my children.
I think we're getting somewhere here.
My kiddos are learning to decorate on their own.
I'll post more pictures as we eat all decorated 48 muffins.
Perhaps we'll take lessons in summertime.
Something we three have in common.
