here. I love pumpkin spice and chocolate together, so these were perfect for me.
This recipe is based off the Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Chocolate Chip Cookies that I made at the beginning of the year. I like how soft and puffy those cookies were. I just swapped out the dulce de leche for maple syrup,changed the cinnamon for pumpkin spice, and added some Pumpkin Spice M&Ms.
