pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies

September is in full swing and everything pumpkin has officially made its appearance. From lattes to cereal, and from salsa to chips. I’ve seen it all, including pasta!

One of my favorite ways to treat myself to pumpkin spice is making these pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies. They are super addictive and everyone I’ve given them to has loved them. 

Since the cookies are made using a cake mix, they have a soft, fluffy texture. They’re the perfect comforting Fall treat and the chocolate chips giving the cookies that extra chocolatey wow factor.

Great for any holiday get together, or just because. They went pretty quickly in my house with requests to make more, so of course I had to! 

What is pumpkin spice?

Pumpkin spice is a blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice. Pumpkin spice blends vary so they are not the same everywhere you go.

How to make this recipe

The best part is it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe because these cookies are made using only 3 ingredients.

1 – Add a package of spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin purée and some chocolate chips to a large bowl.

2 – Mix all three ingredients together, and that’s the cookie dough!

3 – Using a cookie scoop, form 24 cookies and place on baking sheets, spread out evenly.

4 – Bake cookies for approximately 20 minutes. Check with toothpick to make sure center of cookies are cooked through.

To get nice uniform cookies, I use a cookie scoop which made it easy to measure the cookie dough out evenly. I also baked them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper so there’s no need to grease the cookie sheet.

A tip to making the cookies look a little fancier is to reserve some of the chocolate chips that go in the dough mix. After the cookies are all scooped onto the cookie sheets, top each one with a few chocolate chips.

This is the best way to see the chocolate chips in the cookies and it makes them pop a bit more.

I would never have thought of using a boxed cake mix to bake cookies. This comes together really fast and the cookies taste delicious.

Pumpkin and chocolate are a match made in sweet Heaven and the fact that this is a healthier version just makes these cookies that much more extra! I can't wait to try them.
