Foodie Fridays: Easy Brownie Muffins
I found this recipe for brownie muffins on Food.com and decided to try it because it required so few ingredients and really was amazingly quick and easy. I was quite pleasantly surprised when these muffins also turned out to be quite tasty. While not exactly like a brownie, there is enough chocolatey goodness to satisfy any chocoholic craving, and the muffins are also quite moist. I used an organic cake mix, but any type will do. I also used milk chocolate chips because that was what I had, but semisweet would also work. Give this one a try if you are in the mood for something sweet but don't want to prepare anything that requires a lot of effort -- Easy Brownie Muffins will do the trick!
Easy Brownie Muffins
1 box (about 18 oz.) chocolate cake mix
1 can (15 oz.) puréed pumpkin (not pie filling)
6 oz. chocolate chips
Combine the cake mix and pumpkin purée and stir thoroughly until all of the dry mix is moistened and the batter is smooth (it will be thick). Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter evenly into 18 muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until only slightly moist in the center when a toothpick is inserted. Cool before serving. Makes 18.
