Chunky Pumpkin Chocolate Bites #recipes
These Chunky Pumpkin Chocolate Bites combine the texture of a brownie and cookie to bring you a surprisingly flavorful pumpkin recipe. These bites are soft and moist on the inside but chewy on the outside. One of the things that I really like about these is they’re not too sweet. By combining dark chocolate morsels and brown sugar, you get a flavorful bite instead of a sugar high.
One of the things to keep in mind when you bake these is to make sure you remove them from the oven as soon as they’re set (about 15-20 minutes). If you keep them in too long, they’ll burn and dry out on the inside. I didn’t add any nuts to this batch but if you want, throw in some chopped pecans for an added crunch.
- 1 cup butter (softened to room temperature)
- 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 can pure pumpkin (15 oz can)
- 2 eggs (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 bag dark chocolate morsels (10 oz bag)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 heaped teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 1/4 cups flour (I used all-purpose.)
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
- In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice together.
- Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar together until creamy and fluffy. Mix in the pumpkin.
- Add the vanilla and eggs to pumpkin mix and beat until thoroughly combined.
- Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mix and combine.
- Mix in the dark chocolate morsels and pecans (optional).
- Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls at least two inches apart on the cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes (just until dough appears set).
I was able to make thirty (30) bites with this recipe but as always, your results may vary. I ate two straight out of the oven and oh my were they delicious! I hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I did. They’re a perfect treat for these cool Fall nights.
