Yesterday my mommy group had a playdate and everyone brought a dish, when I saw these Pumkin Spice Bars over at My Family My Forever I knew I was going to make them! Only draw back...? I HATE pumkin, but I was willing to try it because I wanted to have something Halloweenish and because there were enough other flavors in it that I do like, I was hoping they would spruce it up and not make the pumkin so noticeable! And I am thankful I tried it, because I liked it ... everyone liked it, and there is NONE LEFT!
Heres the Recipe I got from My Family My Forever
3/4 stick melted butter
1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 can of pumpkin
5 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Caramel ice cream topping to drizzle on when serving
***The only modification I made were, I used 3/4 can of sweetened condensed milk instead of a whole can, I drizzled the caramel when I got it straight from the oven, I also did not use whip cream***
Combine melted butter and graham cracker crumbs in a bowl and mix well. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 8 minutes then remove from oven.
In a large bowl beat the pumpkin, cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
Spread evenly over graham cracker crust.
Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over pumpkin layer. Follow with coconut.
Drizzle 3/4 can of condensed milk on top of this.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Drizzle caramel, cut into bars and serve!
See the wonderful party spread! MmmMmm Good food+ Good friend= Good times!
