Pumpkin DROOL Bars
Oh there's just something about caramel, autumn, pumpkin, and gooey goodness this time of year. These treats will have you drooling!
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 ounces scream cheese, softened
3/4 cup pumpkin puree, use paper towels to soak up excess water
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup cashews, rough chop
3/4 cup coconut, sweetened
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla added)
Caramel sauce to drizzle (your favorite)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place melted butter and graham cracker crumbs into a bowl; mix to combine. Press into the bottom of mini cheesecake cups or large muffin tins. Bake for 8 minutes then remove from oven.
In a bowl beat the pumpkin, softened cream cheese, salt, and spices until smooth. Spoon evenly over each graham cracker crust. Next layer chips evenly over pumpkin layer following with cashews, coconut and condensed milk. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove and allow to cool. Before bars completely cool, take a plastic knife and run around edges to loosen. It becomes very sticky and difficult to remove from the cups if you do not loosen. Once cooled, carefully remove from cups and arrange onto serving tray. Drizzle with warm caramel and serve.
