chocolate pumpkin muffins

Apparently, there is a recipe for everything. I wanted to quickly use up some eggs this weekend, noticed that I also had a box of chocolate cake mix and can of pumpkin. So I googled chocolate cake mix pumpkin and came up with this recipe:
  • 1 package dark chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, mix the cake mix and spice evenly. Add pumpkin, eggs, and oil for 3 minutes using a mixer on medium speed. Pour into the muffin pan with liners.
  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Same as linked recipe except I added an egg, doubled the oil, and added two teaspoons of pumpkin pie mix, and cooked with paper muffin liners for 20 minutes, and didn't frost. Oh, and my cake mix was dark chocolate fudge.

They came out very moist and light and very chocolate-y, but not too sweet. They were not at all pumpkin-y, although you could smell the spices.
