Pumpkin Cheesecake Ritz Cookies are like a pumpkin truffle inside Ritz crackers. The dark chocolate is the perfect compliment to the sweet pumpkin filling.
Beat the softened cream cheese. Add the pumpkin puree and marshmallow cream, beat well. Mix in the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and pumpkin pie spice.
Scoop about one tablespoon of pumpkin cheesecake filling onto half of the Ritz crackers. Top each with another cracker squishing the filling between the two. At this point, the cookies can be refrigerated to harden the filling before dipping, if desired.
Melt the dark chocolate chips according to the instructions on the package. Dip the pumpkin cheesecake Ritz cookies in the melted chocolate and place on parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Allow the chocolate to harden.
Melt orange candy melts in the microwave according to the instructions on the package and drizzle over the cookies. I used a pastry bag to make this step easier.
Store cookies in the fridge.
