    I am giving 5 stars because I goofed, and not the recipes fault. I used baked pumpkin from my garden. I think it may have had too much water. So if you do the same- bake longer. Mine needed more time

    This recipe is brilliant. The best pumpkin recipe I have tried this year! My husband doesn't even like pumpkin flavored anything and he ate two big pieces of this. It was a big hit with the whole family and I will definitely be making this again. I love that only took three ingredients to make.

    It must be good! I have taken it to two potlucks and it is gone before I ever get one! Whips up and put in the oven in 5 minutes or less! Making it again for another potluck, but going to take out one for me...before I put it on the table! LOL!

    Very easy and tasty, but I would not classify this recipe as "bars." It is pumpkin cake. I would also reduce the amount of chocolate chips. Even one cup was too much. I will still make it again since it is super easy.

    Yes only 3 ingredients! It isn't an eggs. Better second day. My drizzling of melted chocolate chips wasn't very pretty so I smeared it to cover entire surface.
