Pumpkin Surprise Cups

I love surprising my kids with a nice treat after school.  These cute, delicious cups are super easy to put together and very tasty.  The fun part is that you can put anything you want in them, like chocolate kisses (of any kind), chocolate chips, caramel, marshmallows, etc.  It's fun to enjoy the little surprise in the middle of the pumpkin cup. :)  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 cup packed brown sugar
-1 large egg
-1/2 cup canned pumpkin 
-1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
-1/4 tsp ground cloves
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1 cup flour
-24 pieces of candy (chocolate kisses of any kind, caramels, chocolate chips, marshmallows, etc)
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Coat a mini muffin pan with baking spray, the one with butter and flour.  Set aside.
In your electric mixer's bowl, cream the sugar and egg.  Add the pumpkin and mix well.  Slowly, add the melted butter. Give it a good stir, then add the salt, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and flour.  Mix well.
Pour batter evenly into the prepared pan.  Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and immediately press a piece of the candy in the middle of each cup.  It will begin to melt immediately. :)  Cool the cups in the muffin tin for about 15 minutes.  Carefully remove each cup and place on wire rack until cooled completely.  Enjoy!
