  • Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies – Made with only 3 ingredients in just 20 minutes! The perfect easy cookie recipe for the “non-baker” to whip up this fall!

    If you know me, you know I love to doctor up a box of cake mix. These 3-ingredient pumpkin cake mix cookies are a favorite, as well as my dump cake recipe, cake batter popcorn, chocolate-dipped strawberry cookies and cake mix cookies made 4 different ways.

    Pumpkin cookies with cake mix

    These pumpkin chocolate cake mix cookies are seriously one of the easiest cookie recipes out there! What makes them so simple?? They’re made with just two ingredients: cake mix and canned pumpkin. That’s it! They do have a more cakey texture than a classic chocolate cookie, but are still super delicious.

    The pumpkin kisses are optional, however I think they add the perfect touch on top of these chocolate pumpkin cookies. Now I have to say – you are either going to love or hate the pumpkin kisses, so you can make these cookies with or without them. I absolutely LOVE them with the pumpkin kisses, but my husband preferred the cookies without them.

    So if you’re looking for something to bake up this fall that’s simple and fast, these easy cake mix cookies are a great option. Perfect for the “non-baker.” ;)
