Have you ever wanted to make something delicious for your friends and family, but weren’t sure what? My Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars are something worth making. It’s pumpkin season and it only makes sense to make something this delicious this fall.

These are also super good, every time I make them, the pan is empty. If you’re trying to understand the deliciousness behind these, think of it like a cross between a cake and a dense bar. Everyone in my family loves them and I’m sure yours will too.  The next time you get a hankering for pumpkin, go ahead and make these. I also make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars when I’m craving something sweet to eat. Which isn’t often, but this recipe always does the trick. Go ahead and make these bars and let me know what you think!
