Individual Salted Chocolate Pumpkin Pies

There is no denying I have a sweet tooth, but lately I’ve also been having that after dinner craving for something salty. Since I am never one to deprive myself, I decided to do the most obvious thing: combine the sweet and the salty to make the perfect after dinner treat. Not only do these individual pies pack the perfect combination of those two flavor profiles, but they also add in everyone’s favorite fall flavor: pumpkin. These mini pies will have you going back for seconds (or thirds, or fourths…) and will set an extremely high, potentially unattainable bar, for all pumpkin pies to follow.
