Out of curiosity and for my love of all things pumpkin, I did a search on Isa's Post-Punk Kitchen site to see if she might have a similar recipe with pumpkin-y, autumn flavors. I ended up hitting the jackpot and found her recipe for a Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf, which I transformed into jack-o-lantern mini cakes!
At first, the combo of pumpkin + chocolate sounded a little funny to me, even though I love both. Still, I had to try it! The result was better than I could have anticipated! Of course, as you can tell from the photo above I didn't make a loaf...instead I poured the batter into some jack-o-lantern molds and made mini cakes!
I think this is the perfect chocolate-y, pumpkin-y treat to make the night before Halloween, or Devil's Night (can I rename this Devil's Pumpkin Cake?)! It is also a wonderful dessert to make as we transition from October to November. The cakes were really chocolaty, but also full of warm, autumn flavors and they make a tempting treat on a chilly autumn day (or night!).
You can find the recipe for this perfect pumpkin treat on the PPK site!
