Dark Chocolate Dipped Pumpkin Pizzelle

I’m almost certain that Aldi’s is pumpkin spice heaven. They have managed to sneak that ubiquitous fall flavor into everything! I was checking out earlier this week and I was completely sucked in by a display of pumpkin pizzelle.

If you’re familiar with me you know I have no control around fall flavors. My fridge is still full of the fall beer that led to my pumpkin gingerbread.

Pizzelle are crispy cookies baked in a very decorative waffle-iron type contraption. I don’t have a pizzelle maker, but I do have and Aldi’s and poor self control.

So I came home with a package of pumpkin pizzelle and no idea what to do with them. The cookies are so fancy and delicate  that they steal the show all on their own.

But if I was just telling you to throw some store bought cookies on a tray I wouldn’t need to make a whole post about it. So we’re going to take it a step further.

After a quick search through my over flowing panty I came up with a quick and easy dipped dessert cookie. They’re no-bake and look 100 times fancier than they are.

You can put a whole plate together in about 10 minutes. I have a huge collection of sprinkles thanks to the local Mennonite Market and I decided on some autumn hued nonpareils, leaf shapes and chunky gold glitter.

The gold is a subtle nod to fall without being over the top while the other two scream fall quite loudly!

I used Ghiradelli melts because I’m fancy and they’re easy to find at Target and Walmart but I know Aldi’s carries their own chocolate almond bark. The flavor isn’t as nice but it’s much cheaper and there is a lot of value in one stop shopping!

I hope you get a chance to try these delicious no bake fall cookies, they are so so so good and very easy to make. I even let my little ones help with the sprinkles.

Of course Mary was only interested in the side covered in chocolate but.. You know how it goes 😉

Those cookies would go quickly in my house. We all love pumpkin, but with chocolate and sprinkles you can't go wrong. The little leaf sprinkles are perfect!
