Chocolate muffins

Hi, today my sister and I made some chocolate chip muffins, from one of our mums recipe books. It makes twelve muffins, and are really nice. They have the perfect amount of chocolateiness  in them, and are really easy to make if you are a newcomer to cooking and you want something sweet and easy to make… If you want to try making them, the instructions are below:
