I hope you’re not getting tired of Fall-themed recipes, because this is one recipe you don’t want to miss.
During this time of year, I love anything with pumpkin in it – pumpkin pie, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin muffins, and the list goes on and on…
But throw chocolate into the mix, and I’m one happy camper.
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares are loaded with chocolate, and I mean loaded! A whole 12 ounce package of chocolate chips gets baked into these luscious, moist pumpkin squares, and the result is nothing short of amazing.
If you only make one Fall-themed dessert this season, I would recommend trying this one. You won’t be disappointed.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla extract until combined. Beat in pumpkin puree.
Gradually add in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Remove to a wire rack and cool completely in pan.
