Chocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups! Pretty sure you would have to live in a hole to not realize it is Pumpkin EVERYTHING season. I am a huge fan of pumpkin desserts but I do feel like each year gets a little more pumpkin crazy.
I am being super basic and adding to the pumpkin craze. This is not the only recipe I have coming either…..#sorrynotsorry.
A while back I posted a recipe for some Peanut Butter Coconut Cups and I decided to rework the recipe to make a pumpkin variation. Chocolate and pumpkin is probably one of my favorite flavor combinations.
This recipe really is so incredibly easy and D E L I C I O U S! The filling is made from cashew butter, pumpkin and spices.
I also like to use a really dark chocolate – anywhere from 70-85%.
The only thing that takes some time is waiting for the layers and chocolate to set.
What are your favorite pumpkin desserts?!
