  • 1 egg
  • 1 can pumpkin (NOT pie mix, just pumpkin!)
  • 1 package of cream cheese at room temperature.
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

(YUM!)Grease mini-muffin pans lightly and add the batter just to the top of the rim.Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool in the tins for 2-3 minutes and then on a wire rack until cooled completely.If you're not serving that day, store in an air-tight container so they don't dry out.  Otherwise, display and watch them disappear!Nom.
