These fun and delicious Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Twinkies are filled with a cinnamon buttercream. Make a batch for fall parties and watch everyone smile.
I am so excited that it is now officially Fall.
The weather has even been cooperating for the most part. We have been enjoying some cool and rainy days. Now I am just waiting for the leaves to start turning beautiful colors. Throw in a bonfire, and it will be just about perfect.
My kitchen is all about the fall smells too. Baking all the pumpkin things is something I look forward to each fall.
How many of you get excited to bake with pumpkin each fall?
I might be going a little overboard this year...so far I have made bread, donuts, whoopie pies, and now pumpkin twinkies.
I also have 1 or 2 more pumpkin recipes still waiting to be made. Can you say pumpkin obsessed??
For some reason it is the only time of year that I actually bake with pumpkin...so I am just making up for lost time. I mean the last time I baked pumpkin treats was a whole year ago. I must be pumpkin deprived.
Can you be obsessed and deprived at the same time? LOL!
I have a twinkie pan that has been collecting dust in my cupboard, so I figured it was time to put it to use. Don't worry I washed it first. LOL!
I also have multiple cans of pumpkin just waiting to be used.
So chocolate covered pumpkin twinkies it is.
Making these now and noticed there is no mention of the addition of the cinnamon and nutmeg in the written directions for the twinkie batter (but they are in the ingredient list). Almost didn't add them, but double checked and added when I added the pumpkin. Just wanted to mention so you can edit and add those to the directions so no one makes these without the added spices! I'm sure these will be a hit with my pumpkin-loving friends I am making these for!
Thank you so much for letting me know they were missing in the instructions. I went ahead and fixed the recipe, and I hope you and your friends enjoy them 🙂
These are amazing! What a wonderful idea! I would love for you to link this post to my Thanksgiving link up!
