This No-Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake recipe is quick to prep and these cute little “cakes” are the perfect fall dessert! I know pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipes are all the rage this time of year but I wanted to come up with something a little different. I really didn’t think I’d like these no-bake pumpkin chocolate chip cakes, but did I mention I just ate 2 in about 5 seconds? Oh my! :)

I’m generally not a huge fan of chocolate and pumpkin, but I couldn’t resist making these pumpkin chocolate chip cakes and they turned out delicious. Wayyyyy better than I thought. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing? :) What I love about them is that they only took about 10-15 minutes to prep and they’re not really cake (shhhhh….). But no one will know if you don’t tell them. The chocolate cookies get very soft when in the refrigerator and the next day they will taste like cake. You can make these No-Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cakes with no pans and only ONE bowl so clean up is a breeze! Unfortunately, I didn’t get any actions shots. I made them at night and was in a hurry.

You will need to find chocolate wafer cookies which you should be able to find at most grocery stores such as Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers. I love no-bake desserts! Although these don’t take long to prep you do need to keep in the fridge for a while so be sure to plan ahead. Hope you enjoy these cute little No-Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cakes! :)

Notes
SNAPPY TIPS: Be sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature and beat well to remove lumps before adding other ingredients. Also be sure to refrigerate these cakes for at least 6-8 hours if not longer for the cookies to soften and turn cake like.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of pumpkin spice you could use cinnamon, your favorite spice, or omit.

I think you’re going to love this quick and easy dessert recipe that is a twist on the popular New Orleans dessert Bananas Foster! This Bacon & Apples Foster dessert is similar to Bananas Foster, but with apples and Jones Dairy Farm bacon! You may think I’m crazy adding bacon to this ice cream dessert, but trust me, you will want seconds and maybe even thirds!

Bacon & Apples Foster Recipe | snappygourmet.comBananas Foster has always been one of  my favorite desserts. I thought it would be fun twist using apples, rum, and BACON!

The bacon adds a salty flavor and crispy texture to desserts and the perfect addition to the apples and ice cream in these Bacon & Apples Foster desserts.

Bacon & Apples Foster Recipe | snappygourmet.comReady to start this Bacon & Apples Foster dessert? Start with some Jones Dairy Farm bacon. I cut the bacon slices in half so that they would fit better in my pan. Cook the bacon a few minutes per side or until crispy. Remove, and chop.
