I used to not be a fan of pumpkin. Not savory or sweet pumpkin recipes. But, as predicted, my tastes changed and I like pumpkin desserts now. I can still say I’m not a huge fan of savory pumpkin dishes.
Pumpkin is very similar in taste to sweet potatoes. And, I grew up eating and loving sweet potatoes. After all, I live the Sweet Potato Capital of the world!!
Gooey Pumpkin Bars with Praline Topping Tips
Let this cool before slicing. It really needs to set or this dessert will crumble.
I like to take bars instead of pie to potlucks because they go further.
Plus, I like the filling to crust ratio for these bars. It has a less filling and more crust ratio.
Finally, the praline topping is everything! So good!

There are so many pumpkin recipes I’d like to make. I should just make a few a week all throughout the fall. Definitely putting these on the list, Paula. You girls are so clever: what a great way to celebrate Julie’s birthday!
Stopping in from #SITSSharefest.
Thank you Shana! It was a fun party and I didn’t even have to get dressed up!
Looks great Paula! Would love a piece now along with my coffee! Pinned!
Pumpkina and pralines, sign me up Paula!
What a nice way to celebrate Julie’s birthday — these look absolutely incredible, Paula! I’m pinning this on my Fall board for future reference. Yum!

JoAnn @ SweetPepperRose says
Oooo Praline and Pumpkin?? Nice combo 😉
Thanks so much! I was pleased with them, although they started out being something totally different :/ Thanks for stopping by
I was googling and found your website looking for pumpkin recipes. This looks soooo good, but I’m a tad bit confused. We only use 1 box of cake mix, right? I’m wanting to make this for our home group Sunday. Thanks, I am going to be a regular!
Yes, 1 box, you take out 1/2 c for the filling and 1/2 c for the topping. It should not be listed twice, I’m about to correct that, thanks for pointing that mistake out.
Andi @ The Weary Chef says
I wrote a comment earlier, but now I don’t see it. Sorry if I’m repeating myself! This looks SO good. I already love pumpkin, and adding pecan pralines is over-the-top, Paula! What an awesome recipe 🙂
Andi @ The Weary Chef says
I am swooning over here, Paula! I love pumpkin already, but adding pecan pralines in the mix is over-the-top good! Love this one!
Krista @ joyfulhealthyeats says
Ohhhh.. this looks delicious Paula. Especially with the praline topping, I bet that is just divine. Loving on the pumpkin recipes for Julie’s birthday! Pinning!
Me too! I’m finding too many to try!
I know this is good! I have been experimenting with cake mix and sweetened condensed milk recipes lately so I can imagine how good yours is! That praline topping really sold me, can’t wait to try this!
Thanks Jenna, it turned out to be something completely different that what I started out making, but I liked the way it turned out.

Paula those look so good and easy enough that I think I can handle making them! Yay for fall recipes!
Thank you Danni! Yes, they were so easy. I love any recipe that starts w/ cakemix!
Love that these start with a cake mix! See I love pumpkin, it’s the sweet potatoes I need to learn to like!
They taste so similar to me, Tanya. I love a recipe that starts with cake mix… or bacon
