Remember these?



Yes, you've seen these before.  They were made with pumpkin and spice cake mix, with some cinnamon chips thrown in.

Well, here's a variation.  Of course, I neglected to take a picture.  That's why I'm running this picture again.LOL

CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CUPCAKES
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can (2 cups) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix pumpkin with cake mix until moistened; stir in chocolate chips; spoon into paper-lined muffin cups (about sixteen).  Bake at 350 degrees about 15-20 minutes.  

These may be frosted with your favorite frosting.  They were really nice on Halloween with chocolate frosting and white ghost picks on top.  Perfect for the center of a goody tray taken to the neighborhood gathering.

  5. For such a busy lady, you always find time to bake. I bake about once a month. Not too many sweets in my house anymore since I'm so busy.
    They look delicious.

  9. Well----I'd love the one made with spice cake mix. BUT--since I'm not much of a chocolate lover, I don't think I'd ever make the one with chocolate and pumpkin.

    We did share a piece of Pumpkin Cheesecake at the Olive Garden last night... AND --as much as I love Pumpkin ANYTHING, this was not my favorite cheesecake...
