Ingredients For Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins
Three simple ingredients are all that is needed to make these deliciously moist muffins.
Chocolate cake mix~ to get a richer chocolate flavor I used a devil's food cake mix. You could use a triple chocolate cake mix or chocolate fudge if you like. Or change the flavor of the pumpkin muffins all together and use a box of yellow cake mix as we did in our easy pumpkin muffins recipe.
Pure Pumpkin~ add moisture and fluffiness to the chocolate muffins. Pure pumpkin, pumpkin puree, or pumpkin is what can be used. You could use pumpkin pie filling but it will change the flavor of the muffins a bit. Since pumpkin pie filling has ingredients in it meant for pumpkin pie.
Chocolate chips ~ adding a cup full of chocolate chips to the muffin batter really adds to the overall flavor of these delicious muffins. Mini chocolate chips or even peanut butter chips would work for this recipe.
How To Make
These chocolate cake mix pumpkin muffins are quick to make. Into a large bowl add in a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree. Using a hand mixer blend these two ingredients together until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the pumpkin.
Fold the chocolate chips into the muffin batter. Prepare the muffin pan by either spraying the cups with nonstick cooking spray or lining them with muffin liners. This time I used cupcake liners but I have used cooking spray.
A tip I have is to spray the baking spray in the muffin cups then use a paper towel to move the spray around the cup to create an even coating. Another tip is to change the size of the muffins by using different size muffin pans. Make mini muffins by using a mini muffin pan or make bakery-style muffins by using a larger muffin tin. The amount of muffins you get from this batter will also be determined by the size pan used.
Once the cup of chocolate chips is combined use a large cookie scoop to fill the muffin tin with the muffin batter. For added chocolate flavor take a handful of chocolate chips and place them on top of the scooped muffin batter.
Bake the 3 ingredient chocolate chip pumpkin muffins in the oven for 20 minutes. Allow pumpkin cake mix muffins to cool on a wire rack.
Once the muffins have fully cooled place them in an airtight container.
They should stay fresh and moist in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
