Chocolate hazelnut spread is one of my favorite condiments. Yes, I call it a condiment, because it comes in a jar and I love to spread it on all kinds of things. Although my favorite way to eat it is with a spoon straight from the jar - shhh, don't tell anyone!

Chocolate and pumpkin go well together, like this Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake I made a couple years ago. I knew hazelnut would be a great complimentary flavor. The swirl kind of creates a self-frosting muffin. If you want the swirl more incorporated throughout the muffin, I would suggest heating the chocolate hazelnut spread just a bit, so it swirls easier. I hope you enjoy these and all the rest of the #PumpkinWeek recipes!
