Chocolatey goodness

I try very hard to get my children to eat their veges. However, I have definitely been known to sneak some in and not let theme know. The following is one of mine (and their) favs. They have no idea how healthy they are eating and think I am a Goddess for allowing them to eat such "junk food". You can make this with organic ingredients or not, it's up to you. Either way, it's cheaper than buying premade ones. I had figured out at one point that with non-organic ingredients this whole recipe cost about $1.25

1 box of Devils Food cake mix
1 can pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water
1 cup chocolate chips

Makes 12.

Pre-heat oven to 375 and grease muffin pan. Mix the pumpkin, cake mix, and water together. Whip for about 2 minutes on high. Add chocolate chips and mix for another minute. Empty entire mix into muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes.

This is not a mix you will want to lick the spoon with, in my opinion. The batter definitely tastes different than the finished product. No one will taste the pumpkin and it will seem sinfully delicious!
