How to Make Chocolate Chip Apple Pumpkin Muffins with Cake Mix

As I said, these muffins are super easy to make. Combine cake mix, pumpkin, applesauce, and chocolate chips. Scoop the batter into a muffin pan and bake. That’s it!

  • You can use any flavor of cake mix. White, yellow, chocolate, butter pecan, or spice cake all work wonderfully.
  • Can use any type of chocolate chips you prefer – mini chocolate chips, dark chocolate, semi-sweet, or white chocolate chips.
  • The batter will be thick. Do not add any extra liquid.
  • You can make the muffins ahead of time and store them in an airtight container. The muffins will keep 3 or 4 days.
  • Can I freeze Pumpkin Muffins? Yes! Cool the baked muffins and place in a freezer bag. When ready to eat thaw and reheat in the microwave if desired.
