I am so delighted to share with you the recipe for my new favorite fall treat! These Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Cookie Cups will not last long at your home, especially if you are like me and have a slight addiction to the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss treats!

How to make cookies with a cake mix

If you’ve seen or tried the Andes Mint Cookies made from a cake mix, it is a similar concept. I split the batch in half and left the kisses in tact for some, and then spread them out once melted on others. I liked the way they looked both ways, but preferred to bit into the spread out kiss version, once I let them sit in the fridge for a while. Have I mentioned I prefer most of my baked goods cold? Especially if there is any form of chocolate inside. This treat was no exception. I couldn’t stop myself from eating them!

I couldn’t get enough of how cute they looked, either, I took way too many pictures!  I was pleasantly surprised that both my husband and oldest son also love them, but my younger kids haven’t warmed to the pumpkin spice flavor in ANYTHING!  Boo-hoo.
