How can we be surrounded by pretty leaves – cool weather – spicy lattes at Starbucks and NOT ONE SINGLE PUMPKIN RECIPE ON Living The Sweet Life - – what’s wrong with me?!?!
I love pumpkins.
Everyone needs some in their life.
Luckily I have my fair share
And if you’re not a veggie person, look how pretty these are (… I see you staring at the chocolate!!) …
I have a secret to share. Although, you kids are pretty smart cookies so I’m sure you may already know this. Does that nullify it’s secretness – - did I just use the word nullify?!?
… Anyways, you know how pumpkin and cinnamon belong together like Oreo’s and milk – - well did you know pumpkin, cinnamon and CHOCOLATE mesh like magic and sets off flavour fireworks.
You knew this, didn’t you?
And you’re sitting there thinking ” DUHH – it’s chocolate, everything is complete when you douse it in chocolate” – - if you are, I want to reach through the computer screen and give you a hug … you know, in the most non-creepy/ sketchy way possible.
This week the lovely Sunday with Joy-er’s made Joy’s Pumpkin Black and White cookies. And because I can only semi follow instructions, I turned them into whoopie pies.
The good news is, I didn’t change the recipe too much this week.
I simply added
-1 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of ground ginger
- 1 tsp of Nutmeg
- 1 Tbsp of Molasses
Other than that, it’s 100% Joy.
Except, I didn’t make her Chocolate glaze — I just melted chips and did some drizzle
Ladies and Gents of Sunday’s With Joy … why do you even allow me to be a part of your snazzy group, when i clearly have instruction following problems.
The fact is – - It was beautiful. It was delicious.
Get in on the pumpkin action, sweet hearts
