I must admit, I don't think I have ever made a Spice Cake. I always wondered if anyone would like the flavor and I wasn't sure if I would like the flavor. When I saw this recipe I thought it was interesting that it had a spice cake mix as the base. I love chocolate and pumpkin mixed so I had to give this recipe a try.
It came out great. I put everything in one bowl and just mixed it by hand. Very moist and had a great mix of spice, pumpkin and chocolate flavor. I certainly got rave reviews on the muffins.
I found the recipe here
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
I got around 18 muffins (standard size)
1 box spice cake mix
1 (15oz) can pumpkin
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Place paper liners in muffin pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended (I mixed it all by hand so I dumped the chocolate chips right in)
Scoop the batter into lined muffin tins. Bake standard-sized muffins for 25-30 minutes and for mini muffins, bake for 15-17 minutes.
