Oreo Pumpkin Gooey Bars

Fall is almost here!  Time to get ready for all things pumpkin.  These Oreo Pumpkin Gooey Bars are a delicious and great way to jump into the pumpkin baking season.

Gooey pumpkin bars topped with Oreo cookies and chocolate chips.  Chocolate and pumpkin are meant for each other!!!
Yesterday morning we got up early to go to the gym, and it was 57 degrees out!

People, it is still August!!!  It isn’t supposed to be that chilly around here yet!

I have decided that it must be mother nature’s way of telling me that it is time to pull out the pumpkin.  Woo hoo!  I am all over that.  Fall is definitely my favorite time of year.  Cooler temps, changing leaves, bonfires…and PUMPKIN!!!

Every year I go a little bit crazy with the pumpkin baking.  Who else remembers the Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake from a few years ago?  They are one of my all time favorites. 
Oreo cookies and chocolate chips make these pumpkin spice bars an amazing fall dessert!

So, if the temperature is going to be chilly around here, get ready for the pumpkin to start showing up.  But since it is still August, I’ll try to go slow and ease into the pumpkin season.  Maybe…

The first pumpkin dessert of the year is a doozy.  Spice cake, pumpkin, Oreos, and chocolate chips bake together to make a soft and delicious cake.

Do not make the cake mix like the directions.  All you need is the cake mix, pumpkin, and an egg to form a soft but sticky dough that gets pressed into a pan.  Spray your hands with non stick spray, and it will be so much easier to press the dough down.  Then top with mini Oreos, a pumpkin sweetened condensed milk, and mini chocolate chips.  That’s it.  An easy, peasy pumpkin treat to start out the fall baking on.

It’s raining and 60 degrees right now…you know what that means right?  I’m headed to my kitchen for some more pumpkin baking fun.  I hope your ready for this…

Gooey pumpkin bars with Oreo cookies and chocolate chips is the fall dessert to try this year!

    We’re having colder weather here too since hurricane Bertha made its way over us and is pulling all the freezing air back to the UK from cold Scandinavia! Brr.

    But yay for fall. I’ll miss summer, but this year has been a scorcher so I’m looking forward to actually get comfy in bed without being way too hot. And there’s no better way to bring on the fall action than pumpkin!

    And I loooove gooey bars. Everything out these bars is a winner. Love the spiced cake part too. Screams fall. :)

    My coworker and I were just talking about how we are so ready for Fall and pumpkin recipes! This will definitely be one to add to the list. They look delicious!

    These look awesome! I love those mini choc chips on top! I am so ready for fall. We don’t have a/c only one large a/c unit in our dining room window to cool the downstairs and one in our bedroom. But I am so tired of the heat. Christian’s room gets so hot at night that he has a hard time falling asleep. But like I was telling Josh, we’re so fortunate to have a home and these units. So many people in other countries don’t even have that.

    Send that cool weather my way Jocelyn!! It’s still 90°+ here, and I’m dying… Everyone is posting pumpkin recipes, and I just can’t justify pulling it out just yet. (My cans are also kind of packed away in boxes since we’re moving this weekend/next week…) But these gooey bars look absolutely incredible!!

  1. […] yet?  My hand is raised pretty high on that one.  I couldn’t wait any longer to share these Oreo Pumpkin Gooey Bars…and now that I got the first one out of the way, I hope you are ready for plenty more. […]

  2. […] about our 50 degree mornings just a week ago, and how I was busting out the pumpkin in these Oreo Pumpkin Gooey Bars because obviously mother nature wanted me too.  But now I’m eating those words.  Mother […]
