Oh my goodness, it’s officially starting to get cold here and I’m simultaneously thrilled that it’s cooling down and terrified for the cold weather. It’s getting down into the 50s at night and in my world that’s quite chilly. We haven’t made the jump to turning on the heat since it’s still warm during the day so I’ve been piling on an extra blanket at night. That also means it’s chilly when I wake up in the mornings and it is quite the deterrent to getting out bed and out of the warmth.

  7. Fold in the pumpkin puree and chocolate chips until well combined.

  9. Bake cupcakes for 21-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs.
