My theory is that Monday mornings are always better when you start them off with chocolate. :0)
Last week, Deb from Homespun Living shared a wonderful recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares and I just had to try them!
Oh, they were so good! Rich and moist, the perfect amount of pumpkin and dark chocolate.
Here is the recipe!
Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares
2 1/4 c. flour
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
4 beaten eggs
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
2 c. canned pumpkin
1 - 2 c. (dark) chocolate chips
Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray, or butter. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift together dry ingredients. In another bowl cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, beating well; add pumpking filling and mix. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and blend. Add 1 cup chocolate chips & mix together. Spread into prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes.
Sometimes when it comes out of the oven I sprinkle another cup of chocolate chips over the top, let them melt and spread like frosting ~ very yummy and extra chocolatey!
I'm off to sneak another piece, have a great Monday!
