During the fall, pumpkin recipes are obviously the go-to dessert choice for most people. But let’s face it: You can never officially say goodbye to chocolate. Instead of choosing between the two, bring them both together with perfectly balanced pumpkin chocolate treats. Think about it — how much better would your favorite pumpkin cheesecake recipes be if only they included chocolate? Just short of putting chocolate in your pumpkin soup, you’re going to be pairing these two ingredients together all fall long. Keep reading for 19 delectable pumpkin and chocolate desserts that will sweeten up any autumn day.
