A few tips and tricks:

  • In a pinch I have made these with other plain cake mixes and added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice. They turned out amazing.
  • Don’t use anything other than dark chocolate chips. You could maybe get away with semi-sweet, but absolutely do not use milk chocolate. They are way too sweet!
  • This recipe doubles very easily if you only have a large can of pumpkin.
  • If you’re looking to avoid using cake mix you can find my “from scratch” version here.
  • BONUS: no eggs mean you can eat this cookie dough with a spoon, raw and guilt free.

They really are that easy and such a crowd-pleaser! I make these for every event we have in the fall-halloween parties, thanksgiving get-togethers and treats for neighbors and every time they are the favorite.
