No Bake Candy Cookies
These yummy little dessert bites are the latest in my candy cookie recreation.
Chocolate Candy Cookies were a treat my mom made when I was a kid, and I’m having fun making them into new and exciting flavors.
Can’t get enough candy cookies?
Check out all the flavors I’ve made
Pumpkin Spice Bites are perfect for a new treat at a cookie exchange. They are an easy to make dessert that your family will love.
And, if you’re like me, and love pumpkin pie, you’ll love the flavor of these pumpkin spice candy bites.
And, unlike the pumpkin spice latte, these candy bites can be enjoyed year round! That’s because they are so quick and easy to make with simple ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard.
What is Pumpkin Spice?
Pumpkin Spice is just the spices that you might put into a pumpkin pie. It’s similar to the British and Commonwealth mixed spice.
Generally, it’s a blend of ground spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice. And, Pumpkin spice has become the call of fall!
The blend works really well together, almost harmonizing each flavor with the other. If you are terribly opposed to one of the spices, you may leave it out.
For these candy cookies I suggest making them a little smaller so they are just one or two bites.
I used a scoop diameter: 1.6-inch/4 cm for mine. I like the nice small bites for these pumpkin treats. A 1.6-inch scoop holds about 2.5 teaspoons (or a little less than a tablespoon). If you don’t have a cookie dough scoop, you could use a scant tablespoon full to portion of the candy.
Make sure you use pumpkin puree for this recipe rather than pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin puree is only pumpkin, cooked down and pureed. Pumpkin pie mix contains sweetened and spiced pumpkin puree. Pumpkin pie mix is intended be the only thing you need to add to a pie shell to make a whole pie. If you use the mix in this recipe, it’ll throw off the flavors and texture.
