OMG! Seriously, if there was ever a reason to celebrate fall (and there are plenty), this recipe is right up towards the top of the list.
Your favorite treat gets a nice addition of pumpkin to reduce the amount of fat and add some beneficial nutrients into this recipe.

Servings 12 Individual Cups


  • 4 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • cup natural peanut butter smooth or crunchy

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract pure is the best
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch turmeric
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup

  • Melt the chocolate.
  • Line a muffin tin with muffin cups.
  • Put a tablespoon of melted chocolate in the bottom of the muffin cup (spread around to ensure the bottom is fully covered with chocolate)
  • Put the muffin tin in the freezer to set.
  • Blend the remaining ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth and well mixed (taste for desired sweetness).
  • Once the chocolate is set in the muffin cups, pull out of freezer and divide the pumpkin mixture evenly over the muffin cups.
  • Put back in freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Pull muffin tin back out of the freezer and top each muffin cup with chocolate divided evenly over each one.
  • Put back in the freezer and allow to set (only takes 15 minutes) and enjoy!!
  • Store in the freezer.
