Pumpkin Brownies

Let’s face it. Thanksgiving or not, not everyone is a fan of pumpkin pie. If you need a dessert for those chocolate cravers, but you still want to stay in theme, try these! A great blend of both!


  • 1 batch of brownie batter (can be from a box)
  • 1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Prepare brownies per box recipe and divide in half
  3. To half, add pumpkin, oil, cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix until smooth
  4. Pour the chocolate batter into the prepared pan (greased bottom per most brownie box recipes) and smooth
  5. Pour the pumpkin batter over the chocolate in a swirl and drag a knife through to create a marbled effect
  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until set and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the pan
  7. Remove from the oven and allow the brownies to cool on a wire rack before cutting
