Happy Halloween! Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Okay, a quick post before I head out to trick or treating... Are you all excited to dress up and have some fun tonight? We are. We're dressing our 19-month-old son as a vampire - like Dracula and my husband and I will be his victims... I will have to take pictures and post them here so you can see. I will do that tomorrow.

Anyway, this is the last pumpkin recipe I have that I haven't posted on here. Like other pumpkin sweets, these muffins are soft and divine. It isn't hard to eat them up in a few minutes, really. :) Enjoy!
