    I made these bars with a graham cracker crust. They were delicious!! Next time I may mix only 1/2 cup of pumplin mixture into the melted chocolate, so that I get a more chocolaty flavor in the swirls.

    Awesome Recipe. Thick, Decadent, Highly Pumpkin Flavored Bars. I agree with other comments, the part where you mix the chocolate into the "pumpkin mixture" in step 4 is kind of confusing. It should be re-worded to avoid confusion. Luckily I noticed it and the bars came out great.

    Delicious and rich. I made the crust with chocolate graham crackers since I couldn't find chocolate wafer cookies. It turned out great.

    To the comment below - the instruction reads "Add 1 cup pumpkin mixture" - they mean 1 cup of the sugar/pumpkin/egg/flour mixture is to be added to the melted chocolate. Then later you add the remaining mix into the pan, then dollop the chocolate/pumpkin mix into it. I was confused too!

    There appears to be a typo in the recipe. It says 1 cup pumpkin in the ingredients. The instructions say to add pumpkin puree to the cream cheese mixture and also to add 1 cup pumpkin to the chocolate. How much total pumpkin do you need? How much pumpkin goes with the cream cheese and how much with the chocolate?

    i make these at Christmas and they're always a hit with everyone! they are so easy to make. because they are so rich, i opt to make them with a graham cracker crust instead of the chocolate wafer.
