A piece of Pumpkin Pie Crunch Dessert with a dollop of whipped cream.

In 2003 a fun group of gals would gather for our monthly Bunco night. We always looked forward to our evening of socializing, laughter, eating, drinking, and of course talking about our kids (and yes, once in awhile we actually played bunco). One fall night, Julie brought a delicious Pumpkin Pie Crunch Dessert. Julie joked about how easy the dessert was to make. She was so right! After our first bite, everyone was requesting the recipe.

Pumpkin Pie Crunch Dessert.

This is an easy dessert to throw together in one bowl. One of the main ingredients is a cake mix! That’s right. No measuring flour; just open the box and dump it in. Easy!

This is the perfect dish to bring to your bunco night or to the office for a potluck lunch or why not serve it for dessert this year for Thanksgiving!

Can’t get enough pumpkin?
