The leaves are changing, the air is chilling, and– in case you hadn’t noticed – pumpkineverything is just about everywhere. To kick off the holiday season at Kodiak Cakes, we’re spicing things up with five pumpkin recipes that will have you celebrating Halloween for more than just the boos.
PUMPKIN DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES
There are several seasonal pumpkin recipes we can’t wait to bake at Kodiak Cakes when October finally arrives, but Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Cookies are usually first on our list. Our recipe for this classic cookie puts an exciting spin on your traditional favorite, using two Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mixes to create the perfect balance between pumpkin and chocolate. Serving up a warm cookie in place of candy this year will create a Halloween experience your little ghosts and goblins will never forget.
PUMPKIN SPICE DONUTS
If you’re looking for a way to win the festive Donut on a String contest at your next Halloween party, then don’t wander off because we have a plan for you—bring your own donut. Our Pumpkin Spice Donuts are loaded with pumpkin taste from Kodiak Cakes Pumpkin Flax Flapjack and Waffle Mix, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice! Did we say pumpkin? So, even though your blindfold will keep you from seeing where your donut is strung, your nose will guide you to victory. Warning: your pumpkin spice donut will distract your opponents. Keep your elbows up to protect your donut eating territory.
PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE PECAN WAFFLES
We love experimenting with all of the fun and creative ways to use our products at Kodiak Cakes. Who knew our Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Minute Muffin would make such a great waffle, but this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Pecan Waffles is evidence to that. They’re quick and easy to make, but the best part is these waffles are packed with whole grains and protein so you won’t even feel ghoulty eating them.
TRIPLE LAYER PUMPKIN BROWNIES
Everyone loves a good brownie, but our Triple Layer Pumpkin Brownies aren’t just good—they’re great! Yep, you heard right, triple layer. Our Kodiak Cakes Brownie base is layered beneath a burst of flavor from pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. To complete the trifecta, top things off with a smooth layer of semisweet chocolate sauce. In light of the holiday, we suggest taking a special trip to the pumpkin patch so you can whip up your own fresh pumpkin spice puree. While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a few pumpkins for carving to help fend off all of the Halloween screamers.
PUMPKIN MAGIC BARS
Halloween is the most magic-full time of year. To fuel the power behind your bewitching spells and mysterious incantations, we’ve created our Pumpkin Magic Bars to help keep the magic alive. Crafted with our Kodiak Cakes Pumpkin Flax Flapjack and Waffle Mix, pumpkin pie spice, canned pumpkin, and Ceylon cinnamon, these bootiful bars are sure to charm all of your holiday party guests. You can even pair them with your favorite potion to enchant the most beguiling witches and warlocks.
