Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

I was so excited for Halloween this year. We live in a family friendly, mostly military neighborhood and I love decorating and passing out candy to all the trick or treaters! Then to top off our Halloween, our little "pumpkin" Ava was born on Oct 23, so she could celebrate with us! Unfortunately it was too cold to dress her up and take her out but I did paint an Ava pumpkin and put her in a pumpkin onesie! 
The week of Thanksgiving I baked lots of treats including Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies for the EOD guys at my husband's work (recipe coming soon!) and these delicious (and super easy!) Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Cookies! They only have 4 ingredients and have the consistency of a moist whoopie pie. The best thing: they are bite size and delicious!
 Thanks to Dana for this great recipe!

I made this onesie for her with an iron on decal I found for 99 cents!
Check out her ghost hair clip!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

(I doubled the recipe below)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
Make sure you mix the batter well and incorporate all the dry cake mix
at the bottom of the bowl.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon scoop 16 small mounds on the baking sheet.
Bake for 14 minutes. Remove to rack to cool.
These keep well in tupperware or a large ziploc.
They stay moist and fresh for about a week.
 Soft and spongy with the perfect combo of spiced pumpkin and sweet chocolate!
The perfect Fall treat!

  1. I don't know how, but I've never had Pumpkin and Chocolate together in one dessert! I think I need to change that!
