Pumpkin and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combinations, and to make these White Chocolate Pumpkin Bars I used white chocolate instead of dark chocolate for a totally different taste!

These take a little effort to prepare, because you have to make two separate batters and swirl them together for layers of white chocolate and pumpkin. But the result is worth the effort! The white chocolate layer is more cake like, and the pumpkin layer is more dense and chewy, for a great combination of tastes and textures.

When I was making these I was not optimistic about how they were going to turn out, because the white chocolate and butter separated after I melted them, and although I stirred them back together that made the white chocolate batter kind of thick and not very spreadable. The batters wouldn’t make big pretty swirls like I had envisioned when I planned the recipe, so I thought the bars might not turn out at all. But they far exceeded my expectations, because the batters combined and baked together beautifully, and the bars taste delicious too.
