It’s fall, which means it’s time for pumpkin spice and everything nice! If you are craving a sweet dessert, this recipe is for you! This is my family recipe that we use every year as a tradition to get into the spirit of fall.


  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups of floor
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips — or measure with your heart
  • 1 can of cream cheese frosting


Combined all the ingredients, except the frosting, and pour into a greased or floured cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 20 to 25 minutes. After 24 hours add cream cheese frosting to the top of the pumpkin bars and enjoy.
