My grandmother used to make these around the holidays. They are a big hit at office parties and with kids! They are very quick and easy. If you want icing, I recommend whipped cream cheese icing, but they are very good without it.

Chocolate-Pumpkin Cupcakes
Rating: 5 stars 1

As I was craving a seasonal treat to use some leftover canned pumpkin, I created this modification of a widely available chocolate cake recipe. These delights are moist and delicious! You may frost with your favorite buttercream or cream cheese frosting and decorate, or leave plain. These babies are so moist, they don't demand frosting.
