Two Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins

Monday, January 25, 2016

Winter Storm Jonas hit us hard with lots and lots of ice. Today is our second snow day = no school. Like I've said before, I LOVE my job and LOVE my students, but there's something special about a snow day! So I did what everyone else did - cook, watched Netflix and caught up on sleep and laundry.

I wanted to try out this new recipe from my mom - she made it for my brothers the other day and they loved it. (B did too!) It's a VERY simple recipe for Two Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins. All you need is Pumpkin Pie Filling and Devil's Food Cake Mix.

Start by mixing the pumpkin and cake mix together. It'll get really thick, but use those arm muscles and mix it well.

Then add the mix to the muffin tin. I put a heaping spoonful in each cup and was able to fill it perfectly.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes.

They come out looking like they did when they go in, so if you want them to be pretty make sure to smooth them over.

Notes: 1) Next time I want to try Pumpkin Puree instead of the Pumpkin Pie Filling. The only difference in the taste is that the puree doesn't have the added spices. 2) Any flavor cake mix can be used. To make them more "pumpkin-y" try a spice cake mix. 3) Byron said these would be good with some chocolate chips too. :)

Confession: I didn't smooth my muffins over because I was too lazy/ didn't care what they looked like. Sorry.
