This is not a new recipe. I first heard of it from my friend Tara (hi Tara!). She's a great cook. She's one of those people who rarely follows a recipe, but makes incredibly tasty food.
Here's the recipe:
Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 box yellow cake mix (or *spiced mix if you can find them)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup milk
15 oz can pumpkin
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
2 cups chocolate chips, divided
*If you find a spiced cake mix, don't use the above spices.
Mix everything together except 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Spray muffin pan with non stick cooking spray and scoop mixture evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top and bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Makes 18 muffins.
Try this with chocolate cake mix too. So good!
