Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate, Sugar and Spice Theme Week.
Pamela's Pumpkin Mix was redolent with the smell of real, dried pumpkin; and the finished mix was quite good. I made this mix earlier this month with a mixture of butter and coconut oil that was delicious (without nuts or chocolate). Today, I added chocolate chips from Hershey's (Hershey, PA).
The sweet smelling and tasting semi-sweet chocolate chips also had a very faint wax crayon aroma. Although these chips did have an fairly creamy melt and mouthfeel.
