Pumpkin Pie Bites

Honestly, my mom should get credit for these.  I’ll never forget the year I asked for a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for my birthday, and she had a little issue with the stacking of the two round layers, so she crumbled the cake into a bowl and poured the frosting on top.  She called that “cake mash,” and it was delicious.  Now her idea takes a decidedly autumnal turn in these pumpkin pie bites – I hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Bites

1 box French Vanilla cake mix
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 can cream cheese frosting
1.5 pounds semi-sweet chocolate (or white bark or whatever you prefer)

Preheat your oven to 350.

Beat the cake mix with the pumpkin, spices, water, oil, and eggs, and bake in a 9 x 13 pan.

Crumble the cake in a bowl and add the can of cream cheese frosting.

Beat with an electric mixer until the cake mix holds together.

Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball.

Melt your chocolate.  Dip in your balls with a spoon and place on a waxed paper lined pan .

Decorate how you like!  Would be cute with little nuts, but I went with an orange colored drizzle to help identify the pumpkin.  The ones I dipped in white chocolate actually turned out much cuter!

Store these at room temperature and enjoy – thanks Mom 🙂
