It’a almost October, and I am SO ready for Halloween month! Halloween is definitely one of my favourite holidays. I love everything about it – the candy, trick-or-treating (for my kid, of course 😉 ), family time, scary movies, creepy decorations, EVERYTHING.

These Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Bars would make a perfect addiction to a Halloween party. Just look at all that Nutella…

These pumpkin cookie bars are so soft and chewy, spiced with a hint of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, and stuffed full of Nutella. I drizzled extra Nutella on top to make these bars extra pretty.

    I love October and Halloween too. I think I have to dress up to answer the door for the kids this year. But forget the candy, I want these instead. Nutella in a cookie bar beats little chocolates any day!

    As much as I want to embrace all things pumpkin I am wondering where the summertime went? Ah well, I suppose these cooler days give good excuse to get baking don’t they? I’m pinning this recipe as a must bake – it looks delightful.

    I can’t believe October is just around the bend! Where did September go? I don’t mind though because Autumn for me is all about pumpkin and these bars stuffed with nutella are everything.

    Wow, I can’t believe October is just a few days away. Although I’m missing summer already, I’m slowly getting into the autumn mood myself. These bars look delicious, and they are just perfect for starting fall baking 😉
