Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I wanted to revisit a past post of mine and make a variation. I had a yellow cake mix and pumpkin pie filling in my pantry so I decided to give this a try:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (makes 24 muffins)

1 box yellow cake mix
15 oz. canned pumpkin pie filling (not pumpkin puree)
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Put cake mix in a mixing bowl and break up clumps with a fork. Add pumpkin and mix until it is all incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill muffin cups 1/2 full and place in 350 degree oven for 12 minutes.

I got the idea to drizzle these from Reeni at Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice. Just melt some semi sweet chocolate chips in a plastic baggie, cut off the tip and drizzle over the muffins.

I think I may have a "drizzling" problem. I want to drizzle everything with chocolate!

  2. Pumpkin and chocolate chip are a great combo! And everything tastes better drizzled with chocolate!

  3. I make some cookies with those same ingredients (except for using a spice cake mix) and they're one of our fall favorites. I love your idea for making them into cupcakes and drizzling chocolate on them. Yum!

  5. I have an amazing weight watchers recipe very similar. You mix the yellow cake mix, can of pumpkin and 1 egg (its very stiff). Pour in 9 x 13, bake and top with cool whip once it is cooled. It is amazing. These cupcakes sound much the same and I have to give them a try too!

  6. These look delicious and there is nothing wrong with drizzling everything with chocolate :)
