Pumpkin and chocolate just belong together.  Growing up, my mom would make the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in the fall and I’ve been hooked on the flavor ever since!  I love that pumpkin isn’t overly sweet; I leave that job to the chocolate chips.  These blondies combine some of my all time favorite flavors and I know they’ll be a big hit at your house too.  Let’s get baking!
