Now, let’s talk about these Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes.

They are very simple, starting from a box mix but made incredibly moist and much more flavorful with plenty of added ingredients.

Spices, pumpkin and chocolate chips will make these cupcakes taste homemade.

How long do Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes store?

About 5 days in an airtight container. But you can freeze them for about a month. Simply thaw and serve. 

What kind of cake mix do I need for cake mix cupcakes?

It depends on the cupcake to be honest. But for these Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes, using a moist cake mix is best. I don’t stick to a particular brand but I do try to use brand names whenever possible. You can create a twist on this recipe using a yellow, white or even spice cake mix rather than the chocolate. As always, make it your own.
