These are my favorite muffins in the whole world!!!! I wait all year for my grocery store to carry pumpkin so I can make these! They are the ultimate fall recipe! Please enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
What you'll need:
3 cups flour, sifted
3 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter (2 sticks)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 heaping tsp cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg
1 can 15 oz pure pumpkin (you can use fresh pumpkin, but it takes an additional hour or so to roast and puree)
12 oz bag of chocolate chips (for this one, I use semi-sweet)
What you'll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar, butter, pumpkin and butter in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer.
Add eggs one at a time. (be sure to let the butter cool before mixing or you will scramble the eggs!)
Stir all the dry ingredients together
Add slowly to the wet mixture, beating in between.
Add the chocolate chips
Spoon into muffin cups (pretty full since they don’t rise much)
Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove and cool on a wire rack
These are amazing and you are going to be thanking me!! Enjoy!!
