Phew! Sorry for the little blogging break last week but after having been overseas, and away from my little one, I needed to take some time out to be a mommy and get things organized around here. Big trips are exciting but they are also a lot of work – coming home to lots of laundry, messages, mail, etc… it felt a little over-whelming so I really needed to take a few days to get things back on an even-keel. I will be sharing more about my trip in the future but right now I am just too excited about the cooler Fall weather we are enjoying so I want to share some tasty fall recipes instead! First up are these yummy White Chocolate Pumpkin Praline bars (that's a mouthful isn't it?!!)

Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors, which leads to me getting very inspired to do lots of Fall baking. These bars are a delectable blend of pumpkin and pecan flavors which is positively scrumptious, if I do say so myself. And best of all, they are really easy if you use a pumpkin cookie mix as a base like I did.

I have to warn you though, they are quite addictive and while the recipe makes 20 bars (more or less, depending on how you cut them) I can't tell you how many “servings” you'll get – ha! My daughter and I alone went through several bars before we knew it!

I hope you enjoy this Fall dessert!

Happy Celebrating!

    And yes….YOU WERE MISSED!!!

    Your photos are stunning Jennifer! And the treats look delectable.

    I know you are allergic to chocolate…but do you think that milk or dark chocolate morsels would be as good, too?

    1. > Bless you my friend!! You are so sweet 🙂 Yes, I absolutely think milk or dark chocolate would be delish with this recipe!! At least based on my understanding of it – ha, ha!!

  4. Hi,
    Do you have an alternative recipe for the pumpkin mix? I can’t seem to find it locally and I don’t have time to order it.
    Thank you
