It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season! Woo hoo!!
And since it’s latte season, of course all of the seasonal candies have to follow suit.
This year M&Ms joined the pumpkin spice party.
I was so excited about these, imagining the creamy pumpkin spice flavor of the pumpkin spice kisses (and subsequent cookies) and then…meh.
I tried a handful of the M&Ms and then reached back and studied the bag to be sure I had the new pumpkin spice M&Ms and not just the regular milk chocolate ones! After sitting and concentrating for a loooong time, I did notice a very vague cinnamon aftertaste, but it was really inconsequential. Had I not know these were supposed to taste like pumpkin spice, I don’t think I would ever have noticed it.
However, despite the huge M&M disappointment, this cookies were absolutely fantastic! The chocolatiness of the M&Ms perfectly complemented the spicy cookie…and a dash of espresso powder didn’t hurt either.
I sent these along with my husband and his aerobatic team and he told me that they were literally gone in 5 minutes. These were also dubbed “the best cookies yet.”
Wow! Those are some glowing remarks!
So if you need a spicy latte pick me up, and want to make all sorts of new friends, I suggest making these cookies asap!
