Pumpkin Nutella Swirl Icing Muffins

Every recipe I post will be taste tested by the  family, these were a big hit on the home front.

Pumpkin muffins with nutella swirl icing are quick and easy to make. They can be eaten for breakfast, a quick snack or  healthy dessert. Pumpkin is loaded with Vitamin A, which is good for the eyes. Nutella…well…nutella is good for the soul.
