I think it’s pretty safe to say that this will be the last Pumpkin recipe of the year.
You’re sad, I know it. 😉
I’m just trying to give you lots of options so come Thanksgiving you have a ton of pumpkin recipes to choose from. 🙂 Through the recipes I posted and I the Pumpkin recipe Round-Ups, I’ve shared over 125 Pumpkin Recipes so I’m hoping one of them looks easy enough to make. 😉
This last recipe is from Kitchen Meets Girls and is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other time in the fall.
You can leave the mini chocolate chips on or off – all done according to your preference. Our family definitely loves chocolate so we were sure to leave them on. We also LOVE frosting and though these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars were SO yummy!
