Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a madeleine pan with a generous coat of butter and a light dusting of flour.

2: Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices and set aside. Melt butter and set aside to cool.

3: Place eggs and sugars in a mixing bowl and beat on medium-high speed until thickened or about 5 minutes (Image 1).

4: Add the vanilla and pumpkin puree (Image 2) then mix until fully incorporated.

5: Using a spoon or rubber spatula, add the flour in thirds, folding after each addition just until flour is moistened (Image 1).

6: Add butter in thirds and fold after each addition until thoroughly mixed (Image 2).

7: Use a leveled medium ice cream or cookie scoop to add batter to the madeleine pans (Image 1).

8: Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until cake springs back slightly and edges are browned.

9: Allow to cool only for about a minute before removing them carefully with the tip of a knife (Image 2). Allow madeleines to cool completely on a wire rack.

10: Place 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl over a small saucepan filled with 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a simmer and melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. When chocolate is completely melted, remove it from the heat and add the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted.
