Chocolate Pumpkin Hot Chocolate Cake

{I'll give you a minute just let you drool over that photo...}

This cake was way too simple, and not to mention delicious!
Plus it has pumpkin in it, so that should help you feel a little less guilty about
eating more than you should... because you will!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake
{Recipe from Bake at 350}

1 chocolate cake mix
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 egg whites
2 Tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 375º and grease pan well {or liners if you want to make cupcakes/muffins}
In a small bowl, whisk egg whites until white & foamy.
Then add in the rest of ingredients and mix well.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

The cake is delicious on its own, but I decided to get fancy...
so, while the cake is cooling, whip up some of this
Hot Chocolate Frosting

4 envelopes/1/2 cup hot chocolate
1/3 cup hot water
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 lb powdered sugar

Mix hot chocolate & water until mix is completely dissolved.
Add butter & vanilla. Slowly mix in powdered sugar.
Add water to thin, powdered sugar to thicken.
