Found on the Love and Olive Oil food blog, Chocolate Pumpkin Tarts are a mixture of all popular autumnal desserts. Featuring chocolate, pumpkin and pecan, this is the ultimate Thanksgiving confection.

While pumpkin is a popular addition to a variety of fall desserts, this delicious dish juxtaposes pumpkin with other iconic dessert ingredients. While the crust of this tart is made of brown sugar, crushed vanilla wafer cookies and pecan pieces, the actual tart is constructed out of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, bittersweet chocolate and pumpkin puree.

The recipe also includes a tablespoon of bourbon, which adults can appreciate, though the boozy ingredient can be substituted for vanilla extract to make the dessert more child-friendly.
