My son has just realized that he knows how to tickle people.

He’s 16 months, people.

And it’s the cutest thing ON.THE.PLANET.

It’s moments like these that I realize I want a million zillion babies.

And then she died because her ovaries exploded.

J/k you guys. I’m still here.

And my demented ovaries are still in my body pretending to work.

But seriously though. Blake is tickling everyone and I want to squeeze him because it’s so unbearably adorable. He even makes the little “tic tic tic tic” sound as he tickles people—> !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He tickles me, Gordon, Brooke and even floppy, his favorite stuffed dog. His tickling method could use a little work, but for the most part, he’s got it down.

Something else he has down? Screaming “NOOOOOOO!” at anyone who crosses him….meaning if you take away floppy dog, his pacifier or any and all food.

He is no respecter of persons.

But on the bright side, he knows the word ‘no’ very well. Lol!

In other news: it’s pumpkin season at my house!! I love the cooler weather, the tall boots, the cozy sweaters and all the scarves I can get my hands on, but it’s the pumpkin that really makes Fall Fall for me.

Today I’m sharing with you a fabulous swirly whirl of a cookie that will make you never want to diet again. #fatpantsapprove It’s the kind of recipe that people will ask you for again and again. Like, the ones that you bring to a party that get finished first.

Chewy, sweet, spicy, super-cool looking cookies that are downright delectable.

These are so simple to throw together and the combination of caramel, chocolate, pumpkin and spices will make you keep shoveling these into your pie hole. Make them, like, now.

Lets do this:


Obviously, you’re going to want to start out making some cookie dough! I made the pumpkin dough first, then popped it into the fridge before making the chocolate. Once you have both ready, scoop them out onto a baking sheet with one ball of dough right next to the other. Refrigerate these again for 10-20 minutes to firm up enough so the pumpkin dough doesn’t stick to your warm hands.


By the way, both the chocolate and the pumpkin cookie doughs are filled with these caramel filled chocolate chips!!



They look like regular chocolate chips….but aren’t. You can buy these at Target.

ANYWAYS…..back to the directions:


Once you can handle the dough without having it all stuck to your fingers, you should be able to push it together to form one cookie. Bake these for 8-10 minutes in a hot oven.

  • Remove pumpkin cookie dough from refrigerator.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Using a 2 teaspoon sized cookie scoop, scoop 12 level balls of pumpkin cookie dough out onto prepared baking sheet. Using the same sized cookie scoop, do the same with the double chocolate cookie dough. Refrigerate 10-20 minutes until pumpkin cookie dough doesn't stick to your hands when touched.

    That sounds so cute! I don’t think my one nephew has learned how to tickle yet but I bet I will love it when he does. With some hesitation though as I was tickled mercilessly as a child to the point where I couldn’t breathe sometimes. As for these cookies, I just picked up a bag of the peanut butter filled chips. Love how you used the caramel ones in these!

  2. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    Blake’s tickling really does sound so adorable! And hey, I’d freak out if someone took away my food too… can’t blame him;-) Love these cookies.

  3. Melanie @ Garnish & Glaze

    Oh my these look good! I have been tempted to buy those caramel chocolate chips and now I will definitely have to. And I’m so sorry you’re son already has the screaming “NO” down. My daughter is 15 months and I’m not looking forward to it.

  4. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    OMG Olivia has been tickling for a while and I LOVE IT. Her newest thing is to hide but she is in plain sight.

    These cookies are an awesome duo.

  5. Erin @ Simple, Sweet & Savory

    OH. MY. WORD. It’s like you’ve taken all of my favorite flavors and combined them into one cookie, you genius you! And I know what you mean about those cute moments with the little ones where you think you could have tons more because they’re so darn cute. Then I have to remind myself of what it’s like to have a newborn and all the sleepless nights and how they grow up to be toddlers who scream in the grocery store. 😉

  6. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    Aren’t those caramel chips just amazing? I was eating them by the handfuls the other day! And these swirly cookies??? Oh, my word! I want like 26 to munch on all day!!! Yum!!!

  7. Heather @ Shards of Lavender

    I just love it when little ones figure out they can tickle people; it’s so cute and even though it really doesn’t tickle, you just have to laugh… I’ve seen these stuffed chocolate chips at the store and wondered how they tasted. Looks like I need to actually purchase some next time!

    I tried this recipe on Tuesday, and I will never try it again. I refrigerated both doughs for several hours, and the pumpkin dough was still very difficult to work with. The chocolate dough wasn’t much better. They were hard to deal with all the way around. They tasted pretty good but are not worth the effort the way the recipe stands.

  9. Christina

    I was very disappointed when I tried this recipe, my chocolate half of the cookie spread much more then the pumpkin side so I ended up with weird looking cookies. How did you get yours to be even on both sides after baking?

  10. Diana

    I think I was a little off on my measuring because I ended up with 18 cookies instead of 24. I had to cook them for a little longer (11-13 minutes), but they turned out really well. They are soft and fluffy and deliciously chocolate-y!

    Yummy! A Perfect fall cookie! My son is two and he is constantly tickling people so I know what you mean. It’s the cutest thing ever!
