Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Mini Pumpkin Pies

Jump To Recipe

How many times have you volunteered the dessert at Thanksgiving and then you end up leaving two, maybe three untouched pies?  Call me crazy, but I feel like dessert is becoming the red headed stepchild of the Thanksgiving meal.  It’s so sad!  Dessert used to be the best part and now it’s sort of the forgotten last course.  Completely understandable though.  After appetizers and a big ole dinner, everyone is spent by the time dessert rolls around.  The solution, especially for those who just want a bite of something sweet, is a mini version of whatever pie you want to make, such as these Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Mini Pumpkin Pies.

There are so many ways to make mini versions of apple pies, pecan pies and pumpkin pies.  I’m sure you’ve seen tons of options on pinterest.  And why not try a mini dessert?!  They’re so cute!  Maybe is a psychological thing, but I always think the mini version of something sweet tastes better than the regular size.  Mini reese cups, two bite brownies, pecan tassies, they all seem to be just a little bit more delicious. And of course, Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Mini Pumpkin Pies!

I played around with a mini pumpkin pie and just kept adding stuff I had lying around.  The finished product had a chocolate layer under the pumpkin pie filling and was topped with caramel sauce that has a kick of bourbon in it.  Whaaaa?? Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Mini Pumpkin Pies! It was like three desserts in one and then smooshed into a tiny pie.  Absolutely to die for!  They were so rich, one bite was about all I could handle.  Your super sweet eaters at Thanksgiving will loooooove these!  You’ll love that it’s one less utensil to clean since they’re basically a finger food.  It’s always a successful day when everybody wins.
