    I made those Chocolate Pumpkin "muffins" on Thursday. I'm not a religious person, but I swear I saw the sweet baby Jesus when I tried them. Holy moly, they are the best EVER. However, they are not muffins, they are little mini cakes in muffin cups :lmao:

    DH loves them, PrincessM is WILD about them. I'm definitely going to be making more! Thanks for the recipe!

    Hey - glad you guys love them SO much - aren't they delish?

    I'll have to poke through my recent posts to find the daily grind thread I used to post the recipe - I can't remember which day that was. (The way my head and neck have been feeling for the past few days after the car crash, sometimes I can't remember WHO I AM! Just kidding...but barely. :sick:)

    I'll try to find it and repost for you, Caroline.

    FROM THE DAILY GRIND THREAD FROM 9/21/09:

    Calanniebu said it was a WeightWatchers recipe - I made a couple of tinkerings with it - so easy and the kids have NO idea these are healthy-ish.

    1 15oz. can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
    1 box of chocolate cake mix (anything - choc fudge, devils food, etc.)
    1 egg
    Handful of chocolate chips

    Mix all ingredients together - batter will be VERY stiff - I use my KitchenAid mixer. In our house, this makes exactly 12 very large muffins. (So, they're probably kinda more than the 2 points suggested by WW )

    Bake at 350 for 20 min. That's it!

    They taste really good and chocolatey - the kids scarf them down. Sorry, morgansmom - they don't taste pumpkiny at all. (I make double batches in the hope *some* end up in the freezer for school day breakfasts - but they don't last that long around here!) And they're nice to share with friends. I think TinkerBean is enjoying one of hers today - is it good?Glad you like the recipe/muffins!

    Apparently, it is an "oldie but goodie" I had never heard of, until Calanniebu generously brought a batch of these to a summer crop and I ate an embarrassing number of them (as did Z2H)!!! If anyone else tinkers with the recipe and finds even more yummy flavor - be sure to let us all know...

    Thanks for the review! I calculated the points, and 12 muffins is 4 points each...

    I haven't made them yet...need the choc cake mix...

    Sounds like a plan!

    Huge tray? I don't know about a huge tray. How about 12 good sized muffins or 24 smaller ones? Oooh, I could do some bite-sized ones. I'll probably do some with and some without the chocolate chips.

    You bet I will! This is your first reminder ;)

    which ever is easier for you!

    that would be perfect!

    Just your sweet smiling face!!!!

    SWEET!!! I don't particularly care for the Pumpkin Spice myself but a grande Non Fat Caramel Macchiato would be awesome!! There is a Starbucks right down the road in the shopping center with Michael's and the Big Joann's.

    I am going to do smaller ones. I thought the bite size would be the right size.

    Definitely your smiling face, and a hug.:hug:

    Good to know you are coming. Thanks for the reminder of the utensils. I'll pick some up tomorrow after DD's dr. appt.
