It’s happened. I’ve officially started fall baking. After the first of September, I think it’s fair game. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year for cooking and baking. And when it comes to fall flavors, pumpkin is an obvious choice . So when I saw this recipe for Chocolate-Pumpkin Brownies, I knew I had to give them a try. The combination of the two sounded like a major flavor win!
I must admit that I totally cheated while baking up this deliciousness. The recipe gives instructions for making brownies from scratch. I used a box mix. To be honest, I kind of love brownie mix. Plus, it makes whipping up a dessert so easy. I also omitted the walnuts for my version. I’m just not a fan of them in my brownies.
I also lined my pan with aluminum foil. I never did this until recently, but it makes the brownies so easy to remove and cut. Another plus – clean up is a breeze!
I absolutely love this recipe for so many reasons. First, my entire house smelled fabulous throughout the baking process. Second, the flavor combination is fantastic. Third, the pumpkin cream cheese mixture added an incredible amount of moistness to the brownies.
So if you are looking for a quick and easy fall-inspired dessert, give this a try. You can find the full recipe here. Have you started your fall baking yet? What’s your favorite autumn treat?
