Pumpkin is good any time of the year, not just fall when everyone goes crazy over it! These chocolate pumpkin muffins have double the chocolate, which means double the decadence!
Remember my double chocolate pumpkin cookies that you all drooled and ooh-ed and aah-ed over?
This is the muffin version. I can barely call these a muffin, actually, the pumpkin makes them so moist that they are verging on a cupcake. Just look at those chocolate chips studding that gorgeous velvety chocolate interior.
Sweet and Decadent
These pumpkin muffins are seriously sinfully decadent, which is why I have a hard time actually calling them muffins. I also have my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins that are healthier muffins and to be honest, the two are night and day.
Maybe I should call these cupcakes instead?
I think you are just going to have to taste test them yourselves and then you can tell me whether they are a muffin or a cupcake. I know it’s hard, and a lot to ask of you, to bake up these beauties and take one for the team.
However, if you are brave and you do bake these up, let me know.
Cupcake or muffin?
Happy Baking everyone!
