Mini Chocolate Chip -Pecan Muffins

OMG. I love muffins. And these mini muffins are no exception. They are melt in your mouth amazing; the sweetness of the mini chocolate chips with the crunch of the pecans. I even licked the batter and I never do that. Really I don't. But this batter. Oh yeah. Definitely one recipe to keep around for those moments when you must have chocolate. And today was a needing chocolate day. But it's all better now, especially when I have these muffins.

Have I enticed you yet? Because I'm fairly certain there will not be any left for Bike Boy. I guess I'll have to make more. Damn.
