We are here today to celebrate the marriage between pumpkin and semi sweet chocolate chips!!! The most delightful marriage ever! Yummm!
So, I have an awesome pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe already (RECIPE HERE), but when I walked past a display of pumpkin products in the grocery store something caught my eye and I literally back pedaled to take a closer look at the little box of pumpkin spice jello pudding. I knew I had to try it in my chocolate chip cookie recipe like I did with these cookies and cream pudding a while ago (RECIPE HERE).
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are easy to make already, but with a box of pumpkin pudding, even easier! Not everyone has a crazy amount of pumpkin stocked in their freezer like me (Remember THIS???), so this is a great alternative!
Seriously, guys, these are delicious!!! I need to go stock up on this pudding because its a limited release!!
