What is it about October that stirs the chocolate cravings?
Is it Halloween? The shorter, darker and colder days?
Whatever it is, there seems to be no shortage of chocolate temptations around, which is why I love this chocolate indulgence!
These 2 Ingredient Chocolate Muffins are so rich, moist and EASY! And they use a seasonally appropriate ingredient... pumpkin! For social events I make jumbo or regular size muffins, for at home I tend to make mini muffins. And topped with cream cheese frosting, OMGEE. You can thank me later... 😉
Did you know that…
1 Cup of canned Pumpkin has over 200% the amount of vitamin A you need each day!
Pumpkin is a good source of fiber which keeps you feeling fuller longer!
Pumpkin is great for your immune system - perfect as we move into Fall and cold and flu season!
1 box chocolate cake mix (look for low sugar, can use a gluten free)
1 15oz. can of pumpkin puree
1/2 C water
1 container cream cheese frosting
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend well with a spoon. Note: batter will be thick, but don't add more water!
Spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray to ensure muffins remove easily.
Pour batter to about 3/4 full in each cup, then place tray in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes (or until you can remove a toothpick from the muffin center clean).
Remove tray from the oven and let muffins cool inside the tray for about 10 minutes before removing. I use a small rubber spatula to gently loosen the outside muffin edges, it makes it super easy to remove them clean from the tray!
