Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins with Streusel topping

My daughter Emma-Lea asked me the other day if I could make something for her for breakfast. She wanted  something she could eat in the car on our way to seminary at 5:15 am .I made Banana Bread last week .This week it is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Streusel muffins .I started with Pillsbury Quick Bread and Muffin mix and added chocolate chips to the batter about 1cup .The topping is 2tbs of each of the following cinnamon sugar,brown sugar,flour,and butter combine with a fork in a small bowl until it looks crumbly like wet sand .Top each muffin with topping and bake at 400degrees for 15 to20 minutes.makes 15 muffins .
 I do know how to make these from scratch I have a wonderful recipe that I grew up with that my parents made all the time .My Husband Ernie was given the box of mix last year as a Christmas gift so I thought I would use it and I have to say they are really good!
