Fall is easily my favorite time of year, and that’s due in large part to the abundance of pumpkin and pumpkin recipes. I don’t recall how I discovered my love for all things pumpkin, but I can tell you that it grows more every year. Perhaps it’s because of the seasonal availability of pumpkin, or maybe it’s just because pumpkin tastes insanely delicious in both sweet and savory applications. Either way, I fully intend on enjoying my share of pumpkin goodies until Thanksgiving is over.
I made these bars last week on a whim, and I am so happy I did. Eric and I split the batch and each took some to work. I realize it seems odd for someone who works at a cupcake shop to take a dessert to work, but my coworkers and I enjoy non-cupcake desserts too. 😉 These bars are moist, thick and cake-like. I used a mixture of semisweet and dark chocolate, which made them incredibly rich. These were just what I needed to curb my pumpkin craving, at least for a couple days.
