When Summer turns to Fall, we take every excuse to incorporate pumpkin into our lives. From pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin spice latte cupcakes to perfect pumpkin tartlets, we will take anything and everything pumpkin! Turns out, adding fall flavors into our recipes is super easy. This Chocolate Pumpkin Whoopie Pie recipe using our Organic Chocolate Cake Mix and Organic Cream Cheese Frosting is the perfect thing to bake when you’re craving pumpkin and short on time.
We love these whoopie pies because they’re soft, chocolatey and lightly spiced with pumpkin and cinnamon. This recipe is so easy and tastes just like fall! They make us want to curl up in a chunky sweater, with a good book and a steaming mug of tea.
