    Pillsbury Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
    15-oz can pure pumpkin
    3 eggs or 3/4 cup egg beaters (used beaters in recipe calculation)
    scant tsp nutmeg
    heaping tsp cinnamon
    1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350.

In mixing bowl, beat together cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, and spices on low until combined. Scrape down edges, then mix on high for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop into lined cupcake pan, 5/8-3/4 full. Smooth tops of batter (these things puff up a lot and can look lumpy) and bake 12-16 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.

Cool 5 minutes in cupcake pan, then cool additional 30 minutes before frosting.

Frost with chocolate or vanilla buttercream and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Or instead of frosting, dust with powdered sugar.

    I've made these twice and they are fantastic!!!! Nice moist texture and delicious flavor. Perfect with a bit of powdered sugar or warmed up slightly and topped with a little fat free frozen yogurt - 1/20/10

    I added a tsp of cayenne to give a bit of warmth to these cupcakes. People who like spicy chocolate loved them! - 5/6/14
