    I’m not sure why chocolate and pumpkin are such a great combination. They don’t sound to me like they would go together well but they soooo do! Great recipe!

    Pumpkin and chocolate chips are a wonderful combination. This reminds me of my pumpkin bars that I posted about a while back. The combination is pretty delicious!
