In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of cake mix, then toss until the chips are coated. Set bowl side.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), add the remaining cake mix, water, butter, eggs, and pumpkin spice and mix on medium speed until combined, about 2-3 minutes. Add the pumpkin and mix for an additional minute until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Keeping speed on medium, add the pumpkin and mix for 1 minute.
Remove bowl from mixer. Add chocolate chips to bowl and use a spatula to gently fold them into the batter.
Pour batter into the prepared cupcake pan, filling each cavity about 3/4 full (about 3-4 tablespoons per.)
Bake cupcakes for 18-21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let rest for 5 minutes in pan, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Decorate with frosting and sprinkles as desired.
Nutritional value is only for the chocolate chip pumpkin cupcakes. Frosting not included.
