Spice cake - pumpkin - chocolate chip "cupcake" muffins

One of our mommy friends makes these delicious muffins.  I did not get her recipe but have been told by many that it is super easy. just using three ingredients... yes, just three ingredients.  The three ingredients are 
  • a package of spice cake
  • 15 oz can of pumkin
  • and chocolate chips... BUT
  • I added an egg and a splash of water
That is it!  Well, I did one batch and tried it.. delicious and easy, but I needed a bit more.. so I added a heaping tablespoon of brown sugar, some dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger (all ground) and I had a little helper.

Wash your hands first
