For the past several years, my mother-in-law has treated all of the girls in the family to a day at the spa after Christmas. We each pick whatever treatments we want and enjoy being pampered. After we're done at the spa, we head over to her house and watch a chick flick and have dinner together. It is always a very lovely day.
Today happens to be our spa day for this year and my daughters and I are all very excited. In between our treatments, there is a room for us to hang out in and just relax with each other, so we like to bring some treats along to snack on. Of course we need some chocolate, so I thought that chocolate chip mini muffins would be perfect!
