Glazed Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips and a glaze on top make a great breakfast or anytime snack.

I love to go grocery shopping with my husband, but we have completely different ideas on what should be in our cart.

I go down a few aisles and come back with my arms full of chocolate chips, cans of pumpkin, cream cheese, cookies, and sprinkles, only to find that he has the cart full of 20 cans of soup.  It is a good thing we are married to each other…he keeps our family fed with “real” food, and I keep the desserts flowing out of the kitchen every day.

When we got home from grocery shopping, my hubby started getting soup and salad ready for dinner, while I took my cans of pumpkin and chocolate chips and got busy on breakfast for the next day.

I am totally and uncontrollably obsessed with pumpkin right now.  I just can’t stop baking with it!

I thought last year was bad with all the things pumpkin I was making, but this year it is 100x’s worse.  Every time I go to bake something, I find myself thinking of how I can add pumpkin to it.  Please tell me I’m not that only crazy pumpkin person!

I baked these pumpkin muffins in a little muffin pan.  They are the perfect size to pop in your mouth every time you walk through the kitchen.  I think I downed about 10 of them that way.  And the glaze on top just totally puts them over the edge.  I mean it’s pumpkin, chocolate chips, and a sugar glaze…what’s not to love?

Now if you will excuse me, I have a half open can of pumpkin sitting in my fridge that needs to become something delicious and decadent.  I’m not sure what…but I’ll find something, don’t you worry :-)

    Lol, I want to go grocery shopping with you two! You are definitely not the only one obsessed with pumpkin right now. I want to spend my entire next month making nothing BUT pumpkin desserts. These muffins are too cute and they look ridiculously moist ‘n fluffy inside. It’s super dangerous making them bite sized cause I think I’d eat the entire batch over the course of a day!
