The Best Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies
Everyone seems to adore the pumpkin spice flavor during Autumn, but what I really enjoy is pumpkin paired with chocolate. It’s a delicious combination! These soft pumpkin chocolate cookies bring together everything good about those two flavors. Paired with a glass of milk, these are heaven.
If you’ve ever had a cake mix cookie before, you’ll know that they are a very soft and almost fluffy type of cookie that kind of resembles a brownie. They are so delicious, but tend to fall apart easier than most cookies.
Ingredients You’ll Need
These pumpkin chocolate cookies begin with chocolate cake mix to keep things nice and easy.
- Chocolate Cake Mix. This time, we used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake mix, but any cake mix you choose will work.
- Canned Pumpkin Puree. I always grab Libby’s brand because it’s my favorite, but again, any brand will do! You can also use homemade pumpkin puree.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice. This is a blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. In theory, you could make your own, but it’s much simpler to get it already put together for you.
- Chocolate Chips. For this recipe we chose semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you could use whatever you’ve got in your cabinet.
- Vegetable Oil.
How To Make Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies
- Mix. Simply use a mixer to beat all your ingredients together in a bowl until it’s combined.
- Bake. Scoop cookies onto a parchment lined pan about 3 inches apart. Bake for about 11 minutes.
- Cool. Let the cookies cool for a couple of minutes on the pan before you try to remove them from the baking sheet.
Note: These cookies are a bit fragile coming off the pan because the bottom does not get hard like a typical chocolate chip cookie. For that reason, make sure they haven’t cooled completely before you remove from the pan, and be sure to use a spatula.
How To Store Your Cookies
These cookies are best stored in a single layer or with parchment paper between the layers of cookies so they don’t stick together. Keep them at room temperature and enjoy within about 5-7 days.
