ohmygosh they look amazing! I’ll be honest….I haven’t purchased those M & Ms because they kind of sound gross to me…but I know a lot of people have said they’re delicious. Definitely a yayyy on the pumpkin

I can’t believe how simple these are! Definitely going to give it a try. I’m not usually big on the spice part of pumpkin spice, but it’s worth a try! I might sub in just regular mms. Thanks for the recipe!

Love it! Pumpkin is always, always a good choice :). I must go to target to get these m&m’s, I heard they are the only ones selling them. I also love that cookies, in moderation, are allowed on the challenge. I hope!

Janetha September 23, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Wellllll.. you’re not supposed to have cookies. Technically.. ahaha.

Bonnie September 23, 2013 at 2:18 pm

ha! I was wondering if you were “allowed” to eat them…I love that you did! You are really doing amazing with your challenge – I know you wouldn’t go overboard and that a cookie in moderation won’t affect you. ;) Well done! …and now I will go to Target and see if those M&M’s are in Canada on the weekend! :D

Bonnie- did you find them in Canada?? I was wondering that too!

They had a bowl of those m&ms at church this weekend, and I think i walked by it (took a handful) about sixteen times.

Pumpkin Spice M&M’s don’t sound gross to me! I’m planning out my Halloween night (I always eat all of my cravings – but just for one night). I”m going to have to put these cookies on the possibilities list! I can’t believe there is nothing but spice cake mix and pumpkin in there. Talk about easy!

I made a pumpkin loaf last week which was pretty good. I love pumpkin everything but unfortunately here in Ireland most shops don’t stock those varieties. Most be a USA thing!!!

What the fuck??!! I need to go to Target – stat!! OMG, I am a pumpkin whore – love everything about it and am surprised I’ve gone this long into September without making anything pumpkin yet!
