Chocolate, Chocolate-Chip Muffins

So, I'm having a hard time with my second post.  If I post about card making all you non-card makers out there will be turned off and never come back.  If I post about fashion, I'll seem too shallow.  If I post about theatre, I'll seem like a theatre geek.  If I post about school, well that's not happening this week because it's Spring Break.  However, since I haven't told anyone I have a blog yet, I guess I can write about anything.

A few weeks ago, I went camping with the Boy Scouts to Enchanted Rock.  It was beautiful and we had a great time.  One of the dad's brought chocolate - chocolate chip muffins to eat.  The were wonderful.  He told me the secret ingredient was pumpkin.  So, I googled chocolate pumpkin muffins and found several websites with the simplest of simplest recipes.   Knowing that this dad made the muffins and didn't have his wife make them or buy them, I figured he probably used the simple recipe.  Mine are in the oven as I type and I'll let you know how they turn out.

There are just 2 ingredients:  chocolate cake mix and a can of pumpkin (Of course I added chocolate chips to mine.)  Just mix them together and bake at 350 F for 20 - 25 minutes.  Here's a picture of mine.  They don't look that pretty but taste is better than looks when it comes to muffins.
