The perfect fall treat and a great thing to serve up at a Halloween bash, this easy-to-make recipe is a favorite. Store-bought pumpkin (filling sold in a can that's available at supermarkets) is the secret to this recipe. These muffins are simple, sweet and still good for ya.
What You'll Need:
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup plain pumpkin (half of a 1 lb. can)
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1 cup (6 ounces) chocolate chips
What You'll Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
(makes 12 regular or 48 mini muffins)
2. Grease muffin cups, or use foil or paper baking cups.

6. Stir in chocolate chips.
