Ok, I'm on a recipe kick... I've been meaning to post quite a few for a while so I'm just going to keep going until I run out of steam! :)
I've seen recipes for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins a few places... A couple of weeks ago I saw Jenna's recipe here and was hell bent to try it. Except, I couldn't find canned pumpkin. Call me crazy, but I wasn't aware of the shortage! So, I gave up after toting Nickolai around to two stores... ugh! But, I was reading another blog tonight and she noted that THIS blogger had mentioned just adding canned pumpkin to a boxed Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Muffin mix. Hey, not a bad idea! I love to make stuff from scratch, but I don't always have the time. I mean, who does really? Taking a little help from the store is a bonus!
So, assembly of this recipe is super easy. Thanks Betty! :) I added more pumpkin than this blogger calls for. I added half of a 15oz can and reduced the water accordingly. I also added another handful of chocolate chips and a tsp of cinnamon. I baked my muffins for 15 minutes and they are perfect!!! I was bummed that I am out of powdered sugar so I couldn't make the nummy looking glaze... and I improvised with a brown sugar concoction - not the same. It's okay, but the glaze is probably much better!
I still want to try Jenna's recipe and will someday when I have more time. I made her favorite chocolate chip cookies last week and they're AMAZING! I'm not a great baker and usually my cookies aren't so hot... But, these are awesome! Totally my favorite CCC recipe from now on! :)
Now I have half of a can of pumpkin to use... any suggestions? I guess I could just make more muffins and give them away.... or freeze them?
