Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

Yes, you read that right.  Chocolate pumpkin cookies.  They are divine.  And oh, so very, very easy.  My friend Jen K from my MOMS Club shared this with me and you have to try them.  Right now.  Stop what you are doing and get the ingredients out.

chocolate pumpkin cookiesChocolate Pumpkin Cookies

1 chocolate cake mix
1 15-oz. can of pureed pumpkin (not pie filling, look for 100% pumpkin)

Mix together.
Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets. Notes: I use a cookie scoop, but make them whatever size you like. They don’t spread out very much.
Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes for tablespoon sized cookies.
Cool briefly then remove them from the cookie sheet and cool thoroughly on a rack.

Optional: add some nuts or chocolate chips

  • So crazy simple and it sounds great!
  • Yum! I love everything pumpkin!
  • These look great. One question though. When I read this I see myself taking the pumpkin and the box mix and mixing them together. Is that what you meant, or are we supposed to make up the cake following the directions on the box, then add the pumpkin. I figured I could try it one way without asking, but I'd prefer not to waste the food if I am wrong. Would appreciate if you could yn-confuse me. Thank you Karen from Tots and Me
    • Yes, you're right. Just mix the dry cake mix and the pumpkin together. If you add the cake mix a little at a time, it's easier to mix.
