  • Flour- You will want to use All-purpose flour for best results.
  • Pumpkin pie spice- This will add that lovely taste of pumpkin.
  • Baking soda- This will help your ingredients rise in the oven.
  • Salt- This will bring out the flavors in your recipe.
  • Butter- Use unsalted butter to control the salt in a recipe.
  • Egg- Use a room temperature egg.
  • Vanilla extract- Use pure vanilla for the best flavoring.
  • Pumpkin puree– Be sure to use puree and not the pumpkin filling.
  • Sweet chocolate chips- This will be for that chocolatey flavor and texture.

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Set your oven to 350 degrees.

Use parchment paper to line a baking dish and evenly spray with Pam. Then, set aside.

Combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix to combine. Then, set aside.

Beat the butter and sugar in a standing mixer until light and fluffy.

Add in the egg and butter and mix until well stirred.

The measurement for sugar is missing, but I guessed it would be 1 cup for the standard batch. I’m layering half of the batter in then adding a layer or ricotta with some powdered sugar, THEN the rest of the batter. I cannot WAIT to try them!5 stars
