Caramel Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Caramel Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins ~ Deliciously moist, packed with Pumpkin & Chocolate Chips with a Caramel drizzle ~ perfect for breakfast, tea time, a snack or for the lunchbox #Muffins #PumpkinMuffins #FallRecipe

These Caramel Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins are out of this world ! Moist, soft and packed with Pumpkin and Chocolate Chips.

I used Caramel Chocolate Chips as I like the Caramel/Pumpkin combination but you can use plain Chocolate Chips or Dark Chocolate Chips - whichever you prefer.

We do not have canned Pumpkin in South-Africa, and I always make my own puree from scratch. A while back I made a fantastic Fresh Spiced Pumpkin Dip and I had the idea then already to use the same Dip in a bread or muffin recipe.

Muffins won, because they are so easy to stick into a lunchbox or grab one on the way to work or school for breakfast.

As you can see below, the Pumpkin Dip did not settle on the bottom {which I was afraid it might do}, but instead the Dip distributed nicely all over the muffins.

No spread is needed, but the Caramel drizzle makes these Caramel Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins just a tad more special {and I am huge on anything caramel!}

CARAMEL CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN MUFFINS

12 Muffins

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 cups Self-Raising Flour
2 TB Brown Sugar
3 TB Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Milk
2 Eggs
1 1/2 cups Fresh Pumpkin Dip {recipe HERE }
1/2 cup Caramel Chocolate Chips  {plain Chocolate Chips will work too}
Caramel- or Toffee Sauce, to drizzle  {optional}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 190 deg C (375 deg F) - line a 12 hole muffin pan with liners or silicone cups.
2.) Combine the Flour and Brown Sugar in a medium mixing bowl - set aside.
3.) Beat together the Oil, Milk and Eggs - stir in the Pumpkin Dip.
4.) Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until well mixed - stir in the Chocolate Chips.
5.) Fill each muffin liner/cup 3/4 full - bake 15 - 18 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
6.) Remove from the oven - let stand a few minutes - transfer to a cooling rack.

Best serve warm, drizzled with Caramel or Toffee Sauce, if using, but the muffins are equally delicious served cold {pop one or two into the kids's lunch boxes !}

  15. The first time I heard of combining pumpkin and chocolate, I thought it was kind of odd. But after trying it...well...I changed my mind. It's great! My vote is for dark chocolate.
    Thanks for linking this week, Linda. My son chose your muffins to feature tonight.
