  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  7. Fold in the pumpkin puree and chocolate chips until well combined.
  8. Fill each cupcake liner about ¾ full.
  9. Bake cupcakes for 21-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs.
