Are you tired of all things pumpkin yet? I’m not! It is still October after all. The thing is though, I also really like chocolate so I can never decide which dessert to go with. So, why not both? I decided to whip together these Pumpkin Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins and boy was it easy!
It takes just 3 ingredients!
I used just a box of chocolate cake mix, canned pumpkin and chocolate chips. Yep, not kidding. That is it!
Mix the three ingredients together, the mixture will be creamy, but thick. Spoon into muffin or cupcake tins and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The mixture, again will be very thick, so if you are looking for a pretty muffin, you will need to smooth out the tops of the muffins before baking. Me personally, I don’t care what my cupcakes look like, I just want them yummy!
Here’s what you need:
A box of chocolate cake mix
One can of pumpkin
Chocolate Chips (I used half a bag, but feel free to use the whole thing…go hog wild!)
As you can see, I enjoyed my muffin right away and it was delicious! Full of ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness!
I am so ready to start baking again! Now that Fall has arrived and it is acceptable to turn on my oven again, I am ready to start baking! Plus, the holidays are coming soon, so I like doing test runs on my recipes.
I have made a couple of tweaks to once of my favorite easy Fall baking recipes!
DELICIOUS 2 INGREDIENT PUMPKIN MUFFINS!
Here’s what you need:
A box of white cake mix
One can of pumpkin
Mix the two ingredients together, mixture will be creamy, but thick. Spoon into muffin or cupcake tins and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Because of the thickness of the mixture, you may have to smooth out the tops of the muffins before baking, but this is based on preference.
The muffins came out super moist and tasting very similar to pumpkin pie! Yummy!
I stuck a mini marshmallow at each end of the pretzel sticks and rolled them in marshmallow creme (to make them more sticky) and then dipped them into the melted white chocolate to create the “bones”. Place all of your bones on wax paper covered cookie sheet and place in the freezer for the chocolate to harden.
Serve with “blood” for dipping (strawberry jam in this case).
We are a family that is trying to get healthy! Several years ago, I lost almost 40 pounds and while I kept it off for a while, I did have another baby and life happened. Now I am back to working on getting the weight back off. When I lost weight before, one major change I made was reducing the amount of complex carbs (breads, sugars, etc) that I eat.
Here is one of my favorite recipes that was a staple for the first time around and will be again!
Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Burgers
I mix the following ingredients to create my turkey burgers:
Ground Turkey – 16 ounce package
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
pinch of salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tablespoons Tapatio sauce (yep..I like my burgers spicy)
Mix ingredients together and cook over medium heat. Wrap in a leaf of Romaine Lettuce and serve with your favorite toppings.
*My burgers are topped with a thin slice of cheddar, tomatoes, peppercinis, mustard and occasionally ketchup.
