Pumpkin Delight Is Delightfully Delicious!

Last week I wanted to make a fall-like recipe for a dinner we were hosting. The main course was roast beef and I didn’t want a heavy dessert to follow such a heavy meal. I decided to make Pumpkin Delight. It was a huge hit with my family and with our friends too. 

Pumpkin Delight

Ingredients:

1 Duncan Hines Butter Yellow Cake Mix
1 15 ounce pumpkin puree
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 ounce Cool Whip
1 cup Heath Bits
Caramel Sauce – I use Hershey’s squirt bottle

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put pumpkin puree in a medium mixing bowl and slowly add cake mix while mixing. Pour in to a sprayed 9 x 13 baking pan or casserole dish.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes. 
  • Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes in to the cake.
  • Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake evenly.
  • Cool for a minimum of 30 minutes. I let mine cool a couple of hours because I had other things to do.
  • Spread Cool Whip over the top of the cake.
  • Drizzle the caramel syrup over the top. I used a zig zag motion.
  • Sprinkle Heath bits.
  • Chill for at least 3 hours but can be chilled overnight. 
  • Enjoy!
