Birthday Cupcakes for my Dad


I made a cupcake celebration for my dad's 70th birthday.  I'm hoping the cups will help all of us with portion control.  I also used a Weight Watchers recipe I've posted about before, using pumpkin added to a box mix. but trying some adjustments this time for density.  The decors on top are Martha Stewart.  My dad likes poinsettias, so they always make me think of him.  I was kicking off my holiday season early, since I'm not sure I'll make it home for Christmas this year. 

Weight Watchers Chocolate Cupcakes

1 box dry chocolate cake mix
15 oz can plain pumpkin
3/4 cup water
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter and bake according to cake mix package directions.  This mix may take a little longer to bake so test with a cake tester or toothpick.  Ice with German Chocolate frosting.  Embellish with decorations.
