Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yeah. I know… I am late today! Oh, don’t you think that I have forgotten FF15! I will not forget FF… NEVER! And how could I forget FF15 if I will be co-hosting today? 😀

Today, I am so thrilled that I will be co-hosting with the lovely Selma @ Selma’s Table. (Please don’t tell me you don’t know Selma. Well, if you have not met her yet, hop on to her blog NOW… And I meant RIGHT NOW!) 😛 And Angie’s right when she said that I need a little calming today from Selma. (I don’t mind kidding around, Angie! I love kidding arround!) 😛

Selma is so kind to offer some help in co-hosting ‘coz I was supposed to be somewhere else today. But… sssshhhh! I excused myself (from work) and will come back to the event later to finish my duties. I was not expecting to be at FF15 this early. I meant, if I was out at the event, I would definitely be soooo late today!


Fiesta Friday has been my favorite event of the week since I joined FF. What else could be fun after a long and exhausting week apart from having to chat with lovely people on FF? Licking the screen because you could not really eat the yummy treats these people have brought for FFAngie @ The Novice Gardener is really so kind to invite us at her home to gather and make mess party. Again, thank you so much, Angie, for creating this amazing party ever. (We will never get tired of thanking you!) Also, I feel so honored that you have thought of me to co-host FF15 with Selma. I think we’ll make a good team, right? The calm and the hyper. 😀

When Angie told me about co-hosting FF15, I thought ‘Wow! This will be fun!’ and I was not feeling nervous at all. But when she sent me an email confirming about co-hosting FF15, I felt a little nervous and I read her email few times just to make sure I understood the message and my duties. 😀 Nervous of what? I don’t have any idea. Maybe, I was just super excited. 😀 I could hug everyone now!


For FF15, I am bringing you these cute little muffins, so you will not notice that you have eaten a lot. 😛 I was chasing time and running so late so I prepared something fast and easy. 😀 I prefer these muffins naked… I meant without the muffin cases. I think I over-baked the first batch as I was busy setting up the table for the photos and have not noticed the time.


Well, I had my timer on but I have not checked the muffins before the timer ends. So what I got were nearly over-baked muffins. They’re still edible but it was kinda dry. Good thing is, I still had remaining batter – I removed the muffin pan ahead of time and did not use muffin cases for the second batch. And they are moist and so yum!

…and before I make rounds, I am leaving you with one of my favorite videos. As for some of you, you know that I love watching YouTube videos just before I close my eyes to sleep. I will share more of these videos in the future. Anyway, this video has gone viral and I am guessing that some of you have seen this. I have mentioned this video to Linda @ La Petite Paniere and she loved it. I remember this cute little kid as I was making these muffins so I thought of sharing the video to you. I hope you enjoy and for those who have already seen it, laugh with me again! 😀 Enjoy!

  1. Love the Tangled clip! Sorry I didn’t stop by sooner, anyways these muffins are adorable! I love how small and easy they look. Wonderful job on co-hosting! I wish I could have joined the party but, our parents were in AK scoping the area and house hunting, so I was watching the other kids. Moving is such a pain, but I know some good will come out of it.

    Well, just thought I would let you know, I LOVED your post! Have a great weekend!
    -Kloe ♥

    1. I searched for you at the party. Why didn’t you bring the kids? 😀
      Indeed, moving is such a pain. But, it will get better once you move to your new house.
      Thank you for stopping by, Kloe. Hope you have a wonderful week. ❤

    1. I know you are preparing for a very important event, Ada. But when you can’t help the cravings, do make these. 😀 Please let me know how it turns out for you. 🙂

    1. When I saw the recipe’s title, I thought it’s a repeated word. 😀 But when I went through the ingredients, oh no! It’s CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE! Then I’m hooked! 😀

      Thank you, Aunt Juju! ❤

    1. Hi, Patty! Thank you so much for coming over. Please, enjoy the muffins. Give Bailey some of these, too! 😀
      Hope you are enjoying FF15 and have a wonderful week! >3

    1. Hi, Naina! Co-hosting is such a lovely and fun thing to do. I am really grateful (to Angie) to be co-hosting with Selma. 🙂
      Thank you so much for stopping by and I am glad you love these! Have a fab week! ❤

    1. Sending hugs… 🙂

      I am delighted that you love the muffins. Yummy, yes? And easy to eat, too! 😛 Thanks for coming and have a wonderful week! 🙂

    1. Mmm, I love that – bouncy co-host – just like the Bouncy, bouncy Tigger! 😀

      Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to see you at the party next time. Have a fab week! ❤

  2. Those muffins look SOOOOOOOOO good, and I can’t get over that video, OMG!!! HA I’m dying, I have to show that to my husband! Thanks for sharing and I loveeeee your blog!

    1. Haha! The video is really a winner! I couldn’t stop laughing even if I’ve watched it so many times! Kids can make you really crazy, but they are the cutest ever!

      Thank you for stopping by! Hope you had a lovely week and I hope your husband liked to video, too! 🙂

  3. These would be good dipped in morning coffee, don’t you think? Once again you have reminded me of my Mom (her name is Jean Hulse and every time I type her email it’s jhuls just like you here!), because she grew up close to Hershey Pennsylvania and loves her Hershey bars! I wonder how fast these creations disappeared at your household?

    1. These muffins dipped in morning is really a good idea. 😉

      Yay! And I love Hershey’s bars, too! It is my absolute favorite brand of chocolates. Oh wait… I must say that Hershey’s is my first favorite brand of chocolate as I have lots of favorites. 😀

      I am glad that you stopped by and have a wonderful week!

  4. Jhuls, you are too adorable for words! I love that you made the muffins tiny so nobody feels that they’ve overeaten, I love the GIF showing how excited you were, and I LOVE that funny video. Everything is just adorable. Just like you. Your enthusiasm makes you a perfect co-host for Fiesta Friday! But give Selma a break, will you? She reported you getting out of control just a teensy bit. Hahaha… chamomile tea coming right up for you, by order of Selma. 🙂

    1. Haha! Did she say that I am being a little more hyper at FF15? I told Selma not to report it to you! 😀 Anyway, I think she worried too much so she decided to ask for chamomile tea. Just take note, Angie, that one tea could not calm me down! I I was jumping around since the party started – so ecstatic to do this co-hosting. Thank you so much for the opportunity, Angie! I am having so much fun! ❤

      I am glad that you loved everything here! Oh, I love this kid so much. He just makes me laugh every time I watch him. 😀 So cute little kid!

  5. These are the cutest muffins ever! I love all the little chocolate chip bits. It’s only breakfast time here, but I’m going to sneak a few of your muffins anyway, Jhuls. I’ll eat breakfast later! 🙂

    1. Don’t you eat muffins for breakfast, Ngan? 🙂 Uhm, weird to say but I eat anything (at least anything allowed) anytime of the day! I even eat ice cream at 3am! 😀

      Anyway, I am glad that you are here! Wishing you a lovely week! ❤

  6. Congratulations on co-hosting! Hope the freaking fabulous fiesta friday is now followed with a wonderful, warm weekend.

    1. Thank you so much! Co-hosting FF15 is amazing and my weekend was… well, mostly I did some errands and baking. I am so excited to share it with everyone, but still can’t find time to do a post for it.

      Hope you had an amazing weekend & enjoy the week! ❤

  7. Lol Jhuls, your post made me smile because I could hear the excitement in your voice! 😀 You are being such a good host, not the last because you bring chocolate muffins for all of us, sometimes there’s nothing quite like a moist chocolatey muffin! I hope you have loads and loads of fun hosting this week’s Fiesta!!

    1. Hi, Saucy! I am having so much fun co-hosting FF15. I did not imagine this could be this fun – really, really fun. Such an amazing experience. ❤

      Also, I am glad that you love these muffins! 🙂 Have a fab week, Saucy! ❤

    1. I am having so much fun co-hosting the party, Elaine. ❤ I could not stop myself from getting excited every time I get to find new people or get to see people's treats for FF15. 🙂

      Hope you had a great weekend and have an amazing week! ❤

    1. Ahh! Coffee and muffins are perfect together! ❤

    1. Hello, Catherine! How was your weekend? I could not believe weekend is over. 😦

      Anyway, I am glad that you stopped by. Have a lovely week! ❤

    1. Hi, Laura! I can’t believe that I have seen this comment of yours. It has been directed to spam folder – I don’t have any idea why. 😐

      Anyway, these muffins are really perfect if you are feeding a crowd! Nothing goes wrong with chocolate-chocolate! 🙂

        1. I stopped checking my SPAM folder since busy days at work started. But I will make sure to check my folder whenever I open my account. Thanks, Laura! Hope you have a great day!

  8. Hi Jhuls! Thanks so much for hosting us with Selma tonight! Your excitement is spilling all over the place! Soon we are all going to be dancing! Good thing we have some of your yummy chocolate cupcakes to give us the energy for a few moves on the dance floor! Thanks for being our co-host! 😀

    1. Hi, Chef Julianna! Did you know that Angie and Selma has given me cups and cups of chamomile tea to calm me down? Maybe my excitement (too much) and being hyper worried them. 😀

      Thank you so much for coming over here, Chef Julianna! Have a lovely week to you! ❤

  9. Hello fellow (not really hyper) host! Loved the two videos – that kid is hilarious but I have to say that I am glad I don’t have to deal with him because I would just cave and start giggling! You are doing an amazing job with FF15 – so happy to be sharing with you! Love your chocolate muffins – I think they look every bit as good as Bea’s! Now, I must run – I’ve seen someone that I need to talk to!!

    1. Hi, Selma! I was at someone else’s place so it took time for me to get back to you. You know, chatting with them and eating their foods at the same time. 😀 I think I had too much sugar this time. The chamomile tea helped, btw, at least for a few hours. Somebody might have caught me sleeping under the bar – really, I felt so sleepy after everything I’ve eaten. Lol!

      Anyway, thank you, Selma! I am glad to do this with you. You are doing a good job – chatting with guests and taking me under control. 😀 I am also glad that you love the video and the muffins. 🙂

      I trust you had a lovely weekend and have a fab week! Let’s exchange email again soon! ❤

  10. Oh my gosh Jhuls! Chocolate Chip Muffins are my absolute favorite muffins! These look so wonderfully good! Chocolate, chocolate …what more could you want I ask!

  11. Yum! This post has made me realise it’s been far too long since I made muffins, that will have to change starting with these! I’m so glad your co-hosting the first Fiesta Friday I’m attending, I’m having so much fun looking at all the recipes already!

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle! I am really honored that you attended FF15. Hope to see you on the next Fiesta Fridays.

      Also, thanks for coming over. I hope you liked the muffins. 😉 Have a superb week ahead!

  12. Hahaha! That was such a fun post to read, Jhuls! And we’ll have 2 of those muffins please? I have been wanting to have something this chocolatey and something that I have not made and these came at a great time except I can only e-eat them. 🙂
    Happy co-hosting!

    1. Haha! That’s really a great word – e-eat. I should use that someday! 😛

      I am glad you love this post. Please, take more than 2 muffins. Others won’t mind. 😀 Have a fab week ahead, Aditi! ❤

    1. Hello, Indu! It’s my pleasure to co-host FF15 – it’s such a great experience. 🙂 Thanks for coming over at these muffins! Hope you have a lovely week! ❤

  13. Thank you for hosting FF this week, Jhuls! I can really see your excitement from that Tangled video clip. It is contagious! I love the other video too, it’s an excellent share for mother’s day. Your muffins are super too, loaded with chocolate, just right for mothers this weekend!

    1. The pleasure is mine, Aspara! ❤ I am glad you enjoyed everything here! It's nice to have you. Have fun at FF and hope you have a lovely weekend! 😉

  14. Jhuls! I am laughing so hard right now! You are so great! You have such a fun personality….I just love your humor! I loved the “licking the screen part”…still laughing about that!
    That little kid is hilllarious! And quite a handful! “Linda honey, listen to me!” ROFLOL!
    You brought so much chocolate this week….ah, thank you my friend!!! 😀

    1. That kid, Mateo, is such a winner! I’ve watched this so many times few weeks back and still laughing every time I watch it again. 😀

      Thank you, Lori, for being here! I was waiting for you! 😀

      1. Hehehe….that’s cute that you were waiting for me! 😀 I always look forward to you coming over to my blog too! 🙂
        Ya, I will have to show my hubby that video!

  15. I’m So pleased I found your Fiesta Friday party!
    Your muffins look great – I’m always looking for good muffin recipes, so will give these a go.
    Thanks for the tip about not using muffin cases… that’s my learning done for the day now!
    Emma 🙂

    1. Thanks for coming over, Emma! I not to use muffin cases for this as I noticed that some part of the muffins really stuck with the cases, and I meant a lot. Maybe because I overbaked them? I don’t have any idea. Anyway, please give this a go and let me know your thoughts. 🙂 Enjoy FF!

  16. I do believe you were born to be a party host, Jhuls! I love that clip from Tangled (?), that’s exactly how I pictured you reading that email, hehe. Your FF recipe today looks fabulous! I’ll gladly accept chocolate anything…especially in the form where no fork is needed. Yummy! 😛

    1. Uhm, I’ll think about that being a party host in real life, Nancy! Thank you for believing so. 😀 Yes, that’s from Tangled! I love that movie! And yes, that was what I really felt. In fact, I was smiling since I started commenting to everyone’s posts – it’s fun and amazing! Thanks for coming over, Nancy! Enjoy the weekend! ❤

    1. I found more lovely videos from The Ellen Show, Linda! I will be sharing them with you in the future, too! It’s good to watch them before I retire so I could sleep with happy thoughts. 🙂 Thanks for being here, Linda! ❤

  17. These muffins look great Jhuls! Thanks for bringing them to the party this week!

    And omg I LOVE this video- its gotten to the point where whenever me and sister get into an argument or disagreement about something one of us will randomly burst out “Linda Linda listen! Linda honey You’re not listening to me!” It ends the argument pretty quick lol

    Great post ❤

    1. Lol! I am saying the same line almost everyday, even if I don’t argue with someone else. 😀 When I remember this kid, the lines just popped out from my mouth. Hahaha!

      Thank you for stopping by, Jess! Hope you have an amazing week. ❤

    1. Hi, Laura! Sorry if I have not got back to you earlier. I think I got so full with all the yummy foods at FF15 and I slept somewhere else – maybe under the bar? 😀

      Anyway, thank you for coming over and co-hosting FF15 is so much exciting! ❤ Hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂
