Had some leftover pumpkin in the fridge that I needed to use, so I made these muffins.  I made 12 muffins without chocolate chips, and 12 muffins with chocolate chips.  I think I liked them better without, but I’m not a big chocolate fan.
Cream Cheese Filling:

1 8oz package of cream cheese

1/2 C sugar

1 egg

Beat together until creamy and set aside.


1-1/2 cups white sugar
