Sometimes I cheat when I bake. Cookie, cake and brownie mixes help so much when you need something quick, and you can easily jazz them up with additional ingredients. In this case, pumpkin cookie mix meets Nutella.

You really could use any variety of cookie mix for these bars, but since we’re smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, I chose pumpkin. And because I failed to share any pumpkin recipes with you before Thanksgiving, #FoodBloggerFail. I’m totally making up for it with these Easy Pumpkin Nutella Cookie Bars. All you need is a box of pumpkin cookie mix, butter, an egg and a jar of Nutella. No, you won’t be using the entire jar for the recipe. But I suggest keeping it out while you’re baking, with a spoon nearby, just in case you get hungry…

I’m sure you have plenty of holiday parties to attend, or maybe you’re hosting your own. If you’re like me, you prefer easy, no-fuss recipes that don’t take forever, especially because we’re busy with a trillion other things. These cookie bars are ready in less than 35 minutes and require no crazy ingredients you may have trouble finding. Simple, delicious, and holiday-friendly!

  3. Spread a little more than half of the cookie dough into the prepared dish and smooth as evenly as possible.
  4. Use a spatula to spread a layer of Nutella over the cookie dough, covering the entire surface.
  5. Scoop the remaining cookie dough on top of the Nutella and spread to cover as much as you can.
  6. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until the top starts to slightly brown.
