Easy Fudgy Blossoms

Hey! Search no more...

I know you are looking for a quick and easy, last minute Halloween treat to whip up before Friday.

*SCREECH* Stop looking it's HERE!

Here is a very quick, insanely easy and intensely fudgy treat.  Suitable for Halloween or any holiday depending how you top it

Easy Fudgy Blossoms
or Evil Witch's Hats

1 box of chocolate cake mix (I used a dark chocolate variety-use what you prefer)
1-15 oz can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses or any variety you prefer or nuts or BOTH


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Place chocolate cake mix in a bowl. Add pumpkin puree and mini chips. 
3. Mix well. Rubbing the mixture on the sides of the bowl to ensure there are no 'pockets' of dry mix. 
4. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
5. Using a small cookie scooper put 12 scoops on parchment. You will fill two sheets and can still fit a couple of extra in between each scoop, they won't spread much. 
6. Bake for 15 minutes. 
7. Place sheets on cooling rack and place either a kiss or nut of choice on center and gently push. When cool, the cookie will hold the centered treat just fine.
Baker's Notes:
1.  I call these Evil Witch's Hat, because they are so moist and fudgy, you will think that they gotta be bad for you.  Nope, no oil, no egg.  They are dark so let everyone else think they are evil so that leaves more for you.
2.  ADDED BONUS!!! Kids can eat these and they will be getting some squash or veggies into their little tummies. *rubbing hands*  BWAHAHAHAHAHA! So now YOU are Evil but in a good way.

3.  You can store these in a tin because they have so much moisture you won't worry about them drying out. You can use the orange candy corn kisses to amp up the Halloween factor if you want. Or one of those new MEGA M&M's in the center....maybe for Christmas?
