I’m like a yo-yo going from a salted caramel treat, to a pumpkin dessert, to salted caramel decadence, to pumpkin again. Please tell me you don’t mind this personality disorder of mine.
I feel like there are so many fall dessert recipes I have up my sleeve and so little time. After Halloween, it’s time to switch gear and start getting you to think about Christmas treats.
And I know once Christmas is over, we’re all on healthy choices, so it’s time to break out the butter now. Am I right?
Last year I shared a delicious pumpkin blondie recipe with you. It occurred to me I should turn them into little cookie bites.
I know peanut butter blossoms are always a huge hit in my house. A cookie with a big chunk of candy in the center. I hear ya. And I’ve done the brownies with the candy center too.
But today my friends, it’s all about the love of pumpkin.
Have you been to Target or Walmart lately and walked down the holiday candy aisle. Good golly there are new treats every year. These pumpkin blondies were inspired by the Hershey’s Pumpkin Kisses. While I’m not a huge fan of eating them on their own, inside one of these blossom cookies is another story! I also alternated with original chocolate kisses, which were a fantastic choice as well.
I’m pretty sure anything with caramel would be divine in here. Heck, toss in a snickers and I’d eat that too.
Hi, my name is Aimee, and I love pumpkin desserts.
