And guess what? If you don’t like chocolate chips, they turn into three-ingredient pumpkin cookies!
Of course, who would eat pumpkin cookies without the chocolate chips? I mean, come on. I throw chocolate chips into everything I possibly can—cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pound cake, brownies, pancakes, waffles, muffins…
These four-ingredient chocolate chip pumpkin cookies use a spice cake mix, small can of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and chocolate chips—or chocolate chunks if you find your stash of semisweet chocolate chips running low.
If you’re desperate you could make these using only the spice cake mix and pumpkin for a total of two ingredients (and the equivalent of the popular Weight Watchers recipe).
