The holiday season is quickly approaching, which means jam-packed schedules for us all and tons of sugary sweets. With almost no time to bake, I’m constantly on the search for quick and easy recipes to satisfy my nonstop cravings for something sweet. Which is why I love, love, love this recipe for chocolate pumpkin bites.

Since it makes about 24 balls, it’s perfect for sharing with your suite mates or dividing it into smaller portions as a snack to bring to class. It’s easy, fast and gluten free; a dream come true.
