Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins



Muffins!!!  What a great way to start a Fall day.  A warm muffin and a steamy mug of hot chocolate.  I love that combination and nothing is better in Fall than hot chocolate with a pumpkin chocolate chip muffin.  I found this recipe a while ago and the author says that this is the only recipe you will ever need for Pumpkin Muffins and I think she is right.  This is the only recipe I ever use and it is always a crowd pleaser.  There is nothing I would change with these.  They make 2 dozen beautifully round-topped muffins and when you press the chocolate chips into the top before baking they come out looking like perfection.


Funny story, I say these make 2 dozen and for the most part that is true.  But I have found that these muffins like to make more of themselves when I need to bring muffins to someone.  Any time I end up with more than 2 dozen from this recipe, I get a call that someone needs something and I have the exact amount of extra muffins to take treats where they are needed.  It might sound a little strange, but I cannot explain how a recipe that normally makes 24 muffins will make 31 when a family of 7 needs something to make them smile.  It’s almost like these muffins are meant to be shared.
