YAY! Pumpkin season is here! I know there are people out there who really aren’t fans of the pumpkin craze this time of year, but for those of us who love just can’t get enough of it! 

Pumpkin is such a classic autumn treat and I especially love it paired with chocolate.  I typically love to throw chocolate chips in the mix (which you certainly can do with this recipe), but I wanted the fudge frosting to shine a bit more! 

The frosting comes from my mom and it’s actually something I customized from her Texas Sheet Cake recipe.  So you know it’s going to be good.  It’s that pourable, silky frosting that sets and tastes like fudge!
