gumballs (I bought a giant bag of gumballs on the Christmas clearance rack at Home Goods after Christmas knowing I would find a use for them!)

mini Kit Kats (I bought a bunch of bags of Halloween candy after Halloween on the clearance rack also knowing I would find a use for them!)

1  Heat oven to 325.  Line muffin pans with paper liners.

2  Whisk together cake mix, sugar, flour, and cocoa in bowl of mixer.  Add water, eggs, vanilla, and sour cream and beat on low for 2 minutes.  Stir in chocolate chips.

3  Scoop batter into paper liners.  Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until center springs back when lightly touched.  Allow to cool before decorating.
