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!)
