Virginie’s note: I used Orange Candy melts. Before they were completely dry, I used a toothpick to draw the lines of the pumpkin.

1 lb. brown sugar
1 12 oz. pkg. of chocolate chips

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Melt butter; add sugar and blend well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Add flour mixture, nuts, chocolate chips, and vanilla.
