Ingredients for Pumpkin Patch Cookies
- White melting chocolate – White chocolate and white melting chocolate are not the same thing, so make sure you purchase the right product.
- Pumpkin candies – Pumpkin candies are made out of the same type of stuff that candy corn is made from! You can often find bags of just the pumpkins, but if you grab the bag of candy corn with pumpkins just pick out the little pumpkins.
- Vanilla and chocolate sandwich creme cookies – You don’t need to use name brand cookies for this recipe, the knock-offs will work great.
- Orange food coloring – A little orange food coloring is all you need to make the perfect pumpkin color to cover each sandwich cookie.
How to Make this Pumpkin Patch Cookies Recipe
Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and then set it to the side for later.
Gran 2 or 3 chocolate cookies and scoop the cream out of the middle. Then place them into a zip top plastic bag and crush until they are a crumbly powder.
Add 8 ounces of white melting chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute. Stir well and then continue microwaving in 15 second intervals until the chocolate is smooth and creamy.
Once chocolate is fully melted, add orange food coloring and stir until it reaches the desired shade of orange.
Take a chocolate or vanilla sandwich cookie and dip them, one at a time, into the orange colored chocolate. Make sure both sides of the cookie get covered, flip it over with a fork if need be.
Remove the chocolate covered cookie and gently shake it back and forth to remove excess chocolate.
Place each covered cookie onto previously prepared parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then, while the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the cookie crumbs over the top.
Press a pumpkin candy into the top of each cookie.
Place the sheet of cookies in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, and allow the chocolate to set.
Once hardened, serve or store for later!
How to Store Pumpkin Patch Cookies
Store these easy no bake cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last for 3-4 days. You can also store in the fridge, but keep in mind that any rapid changes in temperature will cause the chocolate to sweat and change the texture of the cookies.
I do not recommend freezing any leftovers. They are super easy to make, so just whip up a fresh batch!

- Make sure you don’t overheat the chocolate. White melting chocolate can easily scorch, so take it slow and stir the chocolate between each interval in the microwave.
- If you prefer not to use the microwave, melt the chocolate over a double boiler on the stove top.
- Don’t like white chocolate? Then use milk chocolate instead! It’ll look more like the dirt of the pumpkin patch.
