Quick and Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles

I am so grateful to my cousin for introducing me to these!  This is a mix you can buy at Target.  If I remember right the box was maybe $2.99?  My kids and I are huge fans of pumpkin chocolate chip anything, bread, muffins, cookies, you name it.  My husband isn't quite as big of a fan.  Anyway, when my cousin posted about pumpkin chocolate chip waffles on her blog, I knew I needed the recipe.  I had no idea it would be something so great and so easy!  She told me she bought this mix at Target and added mini-chocolate chips.  They are perfect!  You need to add them to your fall traditions.  A couple of tips.  Make waffles.  We tried the pancakes and they weren't nearly as good.  I think the pumpkin makes them hard to fully cook the middles without burning the outside.  Also, be sure to use mini chocolate chips.  The big ones melt all ove the place and are a mess and cause burning problems too.  These are one of the few times when more chocolate isn't better, stick to the 1/2 cup suggestion on the box.  I would also suggest using about half the butter the recipe calls for and extra milk.  These smell fantistically fall-ish and taste even better.  You definitely need to take a trip to Target immediately.  Thanks Suzie!
