Oh the sweet smell of chocolate and pumpkin baking in my oven...at the same time!

I wanted to make something with pumpkin (that is the thing to do at this time of year), but I've already made pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pancakes, and pumpkin cookies. I wanted something different.

Plus I wanted chocolate. How could you ever not want chocolate? Chocolate chips added to pumpkin cookies make them so much better, so why shouldn't any kind of chocolate go well with pumpkin?

So...brownies. And pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie in a brownie! Yes, please!

All I had to do was find a killer brownie recipe, mix up some pumpkin pie filling, and mix them together. I left the water out of the brownie recipe, as the pumpkin adds moisture to the mix, and I don't want my brownies to fall apart completely before they make it to my mouth.

Pumpkin Pie Filling Ingredients

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. ground cloves


Brownie Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/3 cup flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9x13 pan.
  2. Mix together the canned pumpkin and spices. Set aside.

  7. Pour batter into greased pan and spread out with a rubber spatula.
