Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Bars – These scrumptiously soft and chewy pumpkin cookie bars are spiced with autumn flavours, and stuffed full of Nutella!
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.
Pumpkin and chocolate go wonderfully together, and it is becoming a favourite combination of mine. If you love Nutella and pumpkin, then you have to give these cookie bars a try. You’ll be so glad you did!
That melty Nutella centre…
Enjoy, and have a great week!
