A new month. A new party. Today it’s the first Monday of the month, that means it’s time for a new #chocolateparty.
September was our first month and I was happy to see your delicious apple-chocolate recipes.
This month we’re talking pumpkin. Some of you might raise your eyebrow since few days ago I just shared a recipe using candy cane, but leaving that aside, let’s all enjoy October #Chocolateparty.
If you’re new here, let me explain in few words what #chocolateparty is.
Every month, me and a handful of bloggers decide upon a seasonal ingredient, mix it with chocolate and throw a party all month-long. If you’d like to join the fun, all you have to do is create a delicious treat using the two ingredients (pumpkin and chocolate during the month of October) and blog about it until the end of the month.
If you don’t have a blog but still you’d like to participate, share a photo and the recipe on my Facebook wall.
Optional, you can join our Facebook #chocolateparty group
Let’s get this party started, shall we?
I made these cookies for the first time Thursday evening and again Saturday.
The first time I made them they were gone before I had a chance to take some pictures. The second time I made them smaller, using a measuring spoon and not an ice-cream scoop to make sure I still have some leftover for the photo-shoot.
These are not your chewy chocolate-chip cookies. Nor they are crispy on the edges. Nor do they melt in your mouth like these chocolate chip cookies.
These chocolate-chip pumpkin cookies are muffin top cookies. They are moist, cake-like cookies, packed with pumpkin sweetness and full of chocolate-chips.
My picky family doesn’t cake anymore for muffins but they do love cookies and these chocolate chip muffin top pumpkin cookies are great at breakfast, in your lunch box or as an afternoon treat.
If you don’t care much for the cake-like texture, you can still make these cookies (you really should) and skip the refrigerator time. I placed the cookie dough balls in the fridge to make sure they don’t spread much during baking, but you can bake them as soon as you make the dough if you prefer a chewy cookie.
You can also sprinkle some raw sugar on top for a crunchy bite.
