Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bars

Monday, October 10, 2011
These bars are super soft, moist, and full of robust pumpkin flavor.

They’re dense like a blondie rather than cakey.

They’re like biting into a piece of rich pumpkin fudge.

It’s an easy no-mixer, a one-bowl recipe that takes just minutes to whisk together.

There’s plenty of pumpkin pie spice and using a cake mix loads chocolate flavor in every bite.

I used the fresh pumpkin puree that I had from last year in the freezer.

Thawed it out to add to this cake mix and got the moistest most delicious bar ever!

This is a great dessert, cake, and chocolate heaven bar cookie! I never dreamed that pumpkin and chocolate would be so heavenly in one bar!

Chocolate Spice and Everything Nice



Every year as soon as there is a chill in the air, these chocolate pumpkin spice bars are my go-to recipe.


Fall recipes just shout cooler weather, cinnamon, and pumpkin.


Since we are all chocolate lovers here, these are a must make and the most often asked for all winter long!

Coffee Tea or Cocoa




These chocolate pumpkin spice bar brownies, go great with coffee tea or hot cocoa.


I have even made them for Halloween parties for the kids and the warm apple cider at the party complimented these perfectly.


They are just perfect for a cozy cooler evening for snacking on.

The pumpkin keeps everything deliciously moist!



Pumpkin really is a great ingredient for cakes, brownies, and most fillings. The moistness that it brings to all desserts is just decadent, as these brownie bars are.


I never dream a cake mix could mask the real deal. These bars will surprise everyone.


They will think you made them from scratch. No way to tell I promise.


They will think you made this chocolate pumpkin bar from scratch for sure.

Have You Ever Thought About Pumpkin and Chocolate together?



They are rich in flavor. I love to use applesauce in most recipes for moisture.


This does about the same except the taste is so much better.


Who would have thought chocolate and pumpkin?


Not me, I didn't believe it until I tried these.

Frosting or no Frosting?



I suppose they would be good with a little frosting instead of powdered sugar, but I am not of fan of that sugary sweetness of the frosting.


I like the simple powdered sugar on top. Also during the holiday looks more festive. I like the snowy effect.


I am going to also experiment with a yellow cake mix and use some cinnamon in it to see how those come out or even a spice cake mix.


This is so versatile and easy I am sure all of them will come out great.


If you long sugar-sweet bars and love cream cheese frosting, drizzle some cream cheese frosting on top, then add some chocolate melted for added sweetness.


Next time you're trying to use up pumpkin look no further. Try this recipe out. You will be pleased with the results and they won't last long.

Everyone Asks for these during the holiday!



Everyone raves about them. The kids love them.


Blending these two flavors was a win-win experiment, the cinnamon just shouts fall.


They are now on the make it every year list!


Be sure to give them a try, these will be the easiest bars you will ever make!

The blended flavors work so perfectly together.

Cake Mixes Can Be The Perfect Quick Fix!



I don't know how many times I wanted to try adapting a cake mix into a bar but was afraid it would be ruined and didn't know where to start.


So few ingredients go into semi-homemade and voila, out comes the best desserts!


Well after a few trials and errors this one came out amazing!


I always have leftover pumpkin from the holiday and this is the perfect way to use it up.


The flavors were fabulous and worked very well together. Hope you give this a try you will love these!


Using a cake mix made this so easy! Are you ready to fool everyone with this semi-homemade chocolate pumpkin bar?
