These double chocolate pumpkin cookies are the perfect combination of chocolate and pumpkin in a fudgy, decadent cookie. Chocolate pumpkin cookie batter and chocolate chips make this a cookie dream come true for chocolate lovers!

I did a twist on my Cranberry Pumpkin Cookies that I start making around this time of year and added cocoa and chocolate chips, turning them into a completely new – and seriously delicious- cookie recipe.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies are thick and fudgy and I just had to take a bite out of one and show you the chewy decadence that lies inside. The secret to this is to make sure to slightly underbake them.

Since you drop these by tablespoonful into a baking sheet and don’t flatten them, ten minutes in the oven should be all that you need. They will still be a little gooey on the top but what you end up with is amazing cookies that aren’t very cake-like and more like a brownie than anything else!

Bake these babies up and enjoy. I suspect you will have a new favorite pumpkin cookie recipe!

The ingredients for these are the usual, with ONE exception – make sure that you use pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling in the can! If you have pumpkin pie filling that you want to use up, then try my Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe.

    So sticky! I had a lot trouble getting them onto the baking sheet. Big mess! The flavor didn’t seem to be pumpkin forward, so I added some cinnamon and pumpkin spice.4 stars

  2. Gonzalez says

    Made this cookies 🍪 today, they came out wonderful. Thanks for sharing.5 stars

    • Chris says

      This recipe calls for one can of pumpkin puree. What size can?

  3. Kylie Costello says

    These cookies are amazing. They are soft and cake like, they remind me of the tops of cupcakes. I used earth balance butter substitute and dark chocolate chips and they turned out great. I can’t wait to share this recipe with my mom and friends! 10/10 will absolutely be making again.5 stars

  4. Tracy says

    No, no no no! The texture is the only good thing…..I highly recommend adding MORE sugar (and I’m not a big sweets person), less salt and some cinnamon.4 stars

  5. Linda M Schlenker says

    Help! What i the consistency of the dough supposed to be like? I am using fresh pumpkin puree not the commercially canned stufr so I think that the moisture content is higher. My dough was sticky almost gluey – extremely difficult to scoop and the cookies while tasting excellent are not at attractive – more like mounds than cookies. So is the dough supposed to be stiff – like a sugare cookie or runnier like batter? Thinking that if stiffer – will add more flour. Thanks for any any assistance you can provide.

      I don’t know how to describe what mine were like. They were not cookies because they would not stay together. I like the taste though they were not crunchy or chewy and I had to bake them a little bit longer.

  6. Alisia says

    These cookies are so good! The texture is like a cookie and a cake had a baby together. And they aren’t too sweet which surprised me because of the amount of sugar thata added. Overall I’m very happy that I went with this recipe. ?5 stars

  7. Mary P Hoffman says

    Chocolate and pumpkin? They probably have a great texture!

  8. Danieleson says

    This is the 2nd cookie recipe I made from your collection and the only thing I can say is WOW!

    5 stars

  9. Janet says

    These look amazing! I’m definitely going to make them today! Tell Rootbeer that things will be ok. My husband and I have found ourselves childless these days too, but in a much more long term way – 2 kids away at University and one all grown up and moved out! Our furry 4th child, Gus, is finding it pretty tough too (not to mention his momma!). Chocolate cookies will definitely help 😉

    5 stars
