Chocolate (Pumpkin) Muffins

Here is another easy and yummy muffin recipe.  Guess what?  These Chocolate (Pumpkin) Muffins all start with a cake mix.  Now these taste just like chocolate chocolate chip muffins, but the secret ingredient makes them healthier for you and nice and moist.  That secret ingredient is pumpkin.  Even though there is pumpkin in these muffins, you can’t tell. 

For those of you on Weight Watchers, I was told that these chocolate (pumpkin) muffins are 2 points each (116 calories) if you make them exactly like the recipe states.  I did however add more chocolate chips.

  2. I made these yesterday, and they are unbelieveable! This is a new go to recipe. You are a genius. So moist and soft! I had to cook them a few extra minutes because they were still gooey in the middle. But this was heaven! Thanks for sharing.
