Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

In college my roommate made these amazing pumpkin chocolate chip cake-mix cookies.  I had never had something so perfectly pumpkiny-this was back before you could find absolutely everything pumpkin spice and it blew my mind!  They have been a favorite ever since and a staple at our house every fall.

Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies: Double Chocolate Lazy Cake Recipe

The recipe fits right in with the rest of our cake mix series, only it’s even easier to make than the rest of them.  It’s 3 ingredients!!!  THREE.  Life could not be easier and more delicious!

A few tips and tricks:  

  • In a pinch I have made these with other plain cake mixes and added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice.  They turned out amazing.
  • Don’t use anything other than dark chocolate chips.  You could maybe get away with semi-sweet, but absolutely do not use milk chocolate.  They are way too sweet!
  • This recipe doubles very easily if you only have a large can of pumpkin.
  • If you’re looking to avoid using cake mix you can find my “from scratch” version here.
  • BONUS: no eggs mean you can eat this cookie dough with a spoon, raw and guilt free.
