Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins with Chream Cheese Glaze...

Pin It Now!
We have had a bit of a rainy long weekend, so I have been mixing up some after school treats for the kids, who go back to school in just a couple of days.
 I couldn't resist playing 'dress up' with these adorable owl stickers I found at Michaels.
I made them not only for the kids, but I am going to have some girlfriends over for tea and muffins the first day of school.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
{makes 24}

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup apple sauce
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips

In large mixing bowl, mix egg, sugar, pumpkin, vegetable oil, and applesauce until smooth. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to finish cooling. If desired, add cream cheese glaze and mini chocolate chips.

Cream Cheese Glaze

1/2 cup cream cheese
1 cup icing sugar

Mix cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth. Thin with water until it becomes soft enough to drizzle with a spoon over muffins. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.

The weather has turned chilly here at night. I have actually 'caved'  in to the thoughts of the end of summer and wore flannel jammies to bed last night because I was so-ooo cold. And I enjoyed a muffin with a nice cup of hot tea.

On the agenda this week....decorating for Fall. Yeah!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Yummy, Angie!!! Love the pumpkin and chocolate combination, and the owl is the cutest thing! How fun would these be at a party? I'm sure the kids love them, too.

Those look delicious, Angie! I wonder if I could adapt my GF banana bread recipe using pumpkin instead of bananas. I'll have to play with that. I'll bet they smell as good as they look, too!

Rustown Mom said...

These look great - I think its time I started dusting off my pumpkin recipes and make something delish!

Bronwyn said...

OK - You had me at PUMPKIN MUFFINS- but cream cheese glaze, too. You're killing me!

I love everything with pumpkin. Now that school is starting - it feels like fall and you may have just inspired me to get baking with pumpkin. Happy LAbour Day!

These are adorable and they look delicious! It is still warm here, although I haven't been outside for two days. I have been working on the house to meet my end-of-summer organizing deadline. I hope your kids have a happy first day of school! It's going to be traumatic here, I know. ;)

Hi Angie,
I just found your blog and I am loving all of the great ideas especially the lunch organization. I made these yummy muffins yesterday, delish. One little comment is that in the directions you omitted adding the 4 eggs, I always double check before finishing as I have in the past forgotten an ingredient and noticed this. You may want to make a little correction :) Thanks again, and thank you for the inspiration. Dianne
P.S. It is nice to see a blogger from Canada <3
