31 Days of Halloween: Day Six - Pumpkin Muffins

I have a fantastic pumpkin muffin recipe that I've used for several years and shared here before. It is excellent, but it's a lot of measuring and in our small temporary house kitchen it seemed daunting. I've seen the three ingredient pumpkin muffins pinned over and over and over on Pinterest so I decided to try some this weekend. The verdict is that they are SO simple and very good, but they probably still don't beat my "real" pumpkin muffins.


Spice Cake or Pumpkin Cake Mix (I found one in the Halloween section of Target. It was a Pillsbury Pumpkin Cake Mix.)
1 can of pureed pumpkin
1/2 bag of chocolate chips (I used a whole bag...shockingly, it was too many.)

Mix first two ingredients together. Batter will be thick. Add chocolate chips in and stir. Scoop batter into lined muffin tins. I got 18 out of my batch. These do NOT rise at all so the amount you see before you bake is how full they'll be after! Bake 15-20 minutes at 350*. Cool and enjoy!

My favorite part of these was that my helper could EASILY do all of this without much fussing from his Type-A, Hates-A-Food-Mess Mama. ;)
