Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
just a little muffin

Something about pumpkin makes me really happy.  I’ve been enjoying seeing it come in all forms lately on the menu. 

 Recently I got a recipe off of Cooks.com since it looked rather easy and changed it up just a smidgen for my own taste and made mini chocolate chip pumpkin muffins. 
 
I had a big can of pumpkin in the cupboard that has been staring up at me and begging to be used.  I hadn’t had time in the morning to whip up some pumpkin waffles, but I did have time the other night to make these pop-able petite muffins for my co-workers.
 
Since I am always being inspired by the recipes I find by bloggers, I figured I better lend myself and recipe to the audience of others so that they can improve upon it as well.
 
This is what the recipe turned out to be in the end.  I apologize for not being precise, but I kinda just pour, throw in and say “Yeah, that looks good to me.”
 
1 2/3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp (at least!) of cinnamon ( I like a lot)
2 tbsp (I think) of unsweetened Cocoa (I used Ghirardelli’s)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1 cup plain pumpkin (half of 1 lb. can)
1/2 c. (1 stick) melted butter
semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used close to a whole bag so I have no idea how much that is!)
 
In any case, my co-workers said they were “Really, VERY good.”
