Double Pumpkin Kissed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I know, another Pumpkin recipe!! I can’t stop baking with pumpkin right now and I must say that I am loving every minute of it. The way the house smells is enough to motivate me to bake all the time 🙂  Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger are probably my favorite beautiful smells coming from the oven, yum!

Here is a fun, simple cookie with lots of spunk. I am such a sucker every time I pass those Holiday kisses, my hands uncontrollably pick them up and put them in my cart. So to use up my favorite holiday kisses, I created this fun and oh so tasty cookie that you are going to love.

Take a peek and happy Fall baking!

Here’s your line-up. Don’t mind that I forgot the 2 eggs for the photo shoot. Was having a blonde moment!

Cream your butter and sugars, add you eggs, vanilla and pumpkin then toss in the dry ingredients 🙂

I just liked this picture 🙂  I need a wall of just my kitchen aid shots!

You know these bad boys. Unwrap 35 or so 🙂

Love these!

Quarter each little kiss.

Toss in your tasty chocolate chunks….

Along with those kisses!

Break out your muffin top pan, scoop in your dough, press down and bake! (you can also use a normal baking sheet and make tradition cookies with a cookie scoop with this recipe, both delish)

    I made these today for a potluck I’m attending tomorrow. They turned out as yummy as I expected! I found the pumpkin kisses at Target. I took one reviewer’s advice and cut up the kisses first and then put them in the freezer while I mixed up the dough so they wouldn’t get completely smashed when I mixed them in.

    1. Anna

      Forgot to mention that I came out with 5 1/2 dozen cookies instead of 4 dozen. It really makes a lot!

    I made these cookies in the fall–they were wonderful! The whole idea of putting kisses in cookies inspired me to make a new cookie last week. I added a bag of quarted Coconut Kisses (an Easter find at Target) and a bunch of chopped walnuts to a basic chocolate chip recipe. I also added about 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips. SO yummy!
    BTW, any houses for sale in your area? I sure would love to be the neighbor that gets all your tasty leftovers! lol

    I am so sad these look so yummy and the kisses are around only at Halloween 🙁 I found them on amazon I am going to have them send me an email to let me know when they will be available again 🙂 great recipe thank you!

  4. Crystalbaker

    Quite possibly the best Thanksgiving cookie, ever! I made these cookies for our school bake sale!

    AWESOME RECIPE. I made these for a halloween potluck at work and they were a HUGE hit! So, I decided to make them again for a halloween party this past weekend. 4 dozen cookies…gone in a flash. My husband has already requested I make more this week because he didn’t get any at the party!

  8. Melanie Big

    Awesome! This the most yummier cookie that I’ve ever see in my whole life of blogging. Lol.I love the chocolate ingredients of the cookie. Eating this will make burst chocolates in your mouth. Thanks for sharing this one.

  9. culinaryneophyte

    I was thrilled to find the Pumpkin Spice Kisses at Target! I made these this week, and they were fabulous — a big hit with friends and co-workers. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  10. Patty

    Just made a batch of these. I used Rollos instead of the kisses. My Target was out of them.

    They are sooooooooo good!!! Thanks so much!

    Hi!!! I made the cookies last night and they were a hit. Mine came out more of a cake-like consistency though. What was the consistency of your cookies? Your picture definitely looks more cookie-like than cake. I like ANY kind of cookie so it was ok with me (hahaha), I was just curious since mine didn’t look like your pics!

  12. Melanie

    Just made these cookies! They are amazing and I am a hero at work today. People who don’t like pumpkin are even goobling these down

  13. Jen

    I made these and my family LOVED them. They didn’t last more then a day. I brought some to work and gave them to friends. They asked me if it was a secret recipe. I gave them your blog link and told them how you always make such delicious things.

  14. Jess :)

    I made these today and they were so delicious! I didn’t have nutmeg so I substituted pumpkin pie spice and they still turned out awesome. Thanks for the great recipe 🙂

  15. Kelly J

    I made these on Saturday and they were so yummy! My SS class loved them on Sunday too! Thanks.

  16. JennMarie

    I am making these right now, and my house smells fantastic 🙂
    Where can I find muffintop pans? I have looked everywhere and I can’t find them.

  17. Christel

    Do you find that you have to flatten these guys out? Mine got very tall and poufy. I flattned the 2-4 batches and they came out better. I also got a medium scoop, which I’ve never used before. SO much easier to make cookies.

  18. Debbie

    These cookies really do look fabulous! I can’t wait to make them, never thought to cut kisses in half before, it is a great addition!

  19. Angelika

    There is nothing I love more in Autumn than pumpkin. I am making these tomorrow and having a pumpkin spiced latte to go with them. Can’t wait!

  20. Nancy@acommunaltable

    Oh my, pumpkin kisses?? I have not seen these yet but I have to get some of these and try these cookies – they look delicious!!!

  21. Jennifer @ Maple n Cornbread

    Wow….speechless! These just might be the ultimate cookie of my dreams!!

  22. Jenn

    Oh My Word!! These look and sound delicious!!! and those holiday kisses are my FAVORITE!!!!!

    I must try these

  23. Dessert Darling

    Ohmygosh, what are those amazing Pumpkin Spice Kisses!?!? I’ve never seen those!!! This recipe looks Uh-mazing. Dare I try it?! Hmmmm, To be determined…!

  24. Andrea

    I literally JUST finished baking these! I love the pumpkin spice kisses, and have stocked up on them for the fall! But unwrapping a quartering them was so tedious! I think I should have stuck them in the freezer for a few minutes before mixing them in, because they mushed a little in the batter. I didn’t have a muffin top pan, so I made regular cookies. I have a tendency to make giant cookies, so they took a little longer to bake.

    They are delicious and I definitely recommend everyone try out this recipe!

  25. Anita Kehn

    I hope I can find the pumpkin kisses ~ can’t always find stuff like this is our remote area. Jenny, I’m voting for you every day. I want you to win! We’re going to have to work hard.

  26. Laura

    Oh DARN! I tried Harris Teeter, CVS, and Walgreens with no luck. I thought about going to Target but was afraid they wouldn’t have them. For now I will have to make due with just chunks, next time I will find those kisses!

  27. Rachael

    I need to make these now! How fantastic do they look…mmm! I stumbled upon your blog from KevinandAmanda. So glad I found it, can’t wait to try all of the yummy recipes! 🙂
