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!
Chocolate Pumpkin Cookie Ingredients
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.
