Doesn’t it seem like the pumpkin craze intensifies with each passing year? Personally, I adore pumpkin and will go out of my way to try new pumpkin flavored drinks and treats during the fall and holiday season.

For instance, I found this pumpkin praline bars recipe on the back of a box of Pillsbury Perfectly Pumpkin Cookie Mix, and wow, it’s definitely a keeper!

These pumpkin praline bars were so quick and easy to make, and require just a few ingredients beyond the box mix. The funny thing is, the recipe really transforms this pumpkin cookie mix into a really amazing little praline bar that looks just as good as it tastes!

Fans of pecans are going to go wild for these, I know my crew did.

These pumpkin praline bars were such a hit, in fact, that my mom is making two batches for a church function that she’s attending this weekend.

The bars are moist and chewy with a special sweet crunch on the top. They will definitely satisfy your pumpkin craving and they really make the perfect fall treat.

    My fave fall recipe is bean and ham soup and these bars would be the perfect dessert with that meal.

    My favorite Fall recipe is similar to this one. It’s a Pumpkin Butter bar. I saw these mixes yesterday and almost grabbed one. Now, I’m going to want to go back and grab one for this recipe.

    Pumpkin bars with a pecan pie filling top?! Yumm. My favorite fall dessert is Harvest Pie – apple, pear, and berries filling.
