PUMPKIN M&M CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES are the perfect fall bite! Pumpkin spice and chocolate meld together into cookie bliss!
Are you ready for fall? The leaves are changing. Temperatures are dropping. Halloween decorations are in stores and the “pumpkin spice” frenzy is in full swing! To get a head start on the fall baking I started with pumpkin cookies!
Pumpkin and chocolate are a great combination and everyone loves a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookie recipe! While I was out shopping I came across Fall M&M candies and I knew I had to put them in my cookies WITH chocolate chips! That’s right candy coated chocolate pieces and chocolate chips in my cookies, yes please. These Pumpkin M&M Chocolate Chip cookies are one you will want to make ASAP!
I love that these cookies stay so soft and moist thanks to the addition pumpkin. These cookies aren’t overly sweet wither. You would think with the addition of M&M’s and chocolate chips they might get too sweet but they didn’t. They are the perfect combination of pumpkin spice and chocolate!
I was surprised when I tasted one of these little gems the next day. They were even better than having them warm from the oven, the flavors melding together into the best fall cookie!
