For the love of ooey-gooey, fluffy soft pumpkin and chocolate deliciousness (truly a marriage made in heaven), you must make these brownies. They are ridiculous. They cross the line. They’re unreasonable. And must be stopped… with a tall glass of milk.

Sliding a hot pan of these sinfully good treats out of the oven was definitely the highlight of my day recently. With a couple simple ingredients, it can be yours, too!

People ask me all the time how my husband and I aren’t rolling around all round and blueberry-shaped like Violet Beauregard (or at least that’s the way I interpret it!).

Well, it’s about time I let you in on my not-so-secret secret… I give a lot of it away. We have healthy dinners, too. During which I dream about dessert, but still. Healthy dinner, then a treat. Not the whole pan. As much as I want it.

Whether you sneak a few for yourself and give away the rest, or hog the whole pan, you are going to LOVE these festive fall brownies. The creamy pumpkin swirl takes a typical chocolate brownie from delicious to melt in your mouth good. With a glass of milk, oh lordy. Heaven in two bites!

For parties or just to have a treat in the house that calls for something different, these pumpkin chocolate brownies are deee-vine. Try them soon and you’ll agree!

Easy Pumpkin Swirl Chocolate Brownies

Yield: Makes 16 brownies

Ingredients:

For pumpkin swirl filling:

3 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

1 large egg

3 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For brownies:

1 (18 oz.) box brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies)

Oil, water and eggs as called for on box

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, beat all filling ingredients with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix brownie batter, oil, water and eggs as called for on box. Pour 3/4 of the batter into prepared pan. Pour pumpkin swirl filling evenly over batter. Pour remaining brownie batter evenly over filling. Swirl through batter several times with a knife for a marbled effect.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Cool completely before cutting into 16 squares. Store covered in refrigerator up to 4 days.

Enjoy!

    The pumpkin swirl is too pretty! I like eating something healthy, too, then ending with a treat. But I might need more than one slice of this brownie!

    Georgia,
    These fall into the “trouble” category for me, which in the case of food is always synonymous with “to-die-for!” Wow. These are knockout brownies if I’ve ever seen any!! Great job!! I love this combination of flavors – some of my favorites!!

    Looks gorgeous Georgia. I once made similar brownies, but they were so loaded with fat… the cream, the caramel stuff, oMGGG… your version is much healthier. Yeah, I eat healthy too, and then dream about dessert, if I ate unhealthy, it wouldn’t be good. :-)

    This looks so delicious– I get lost in the swirls! Since I’m allergic to dairy products, what would you substitute for the eggs and cream cheese?

    • Georgia — October 23rd, 2013 @ 5:23 pm

      I’ve never used anything besides eggs and cream cheese, so I can’t recommend substitutes, sorry!

    Haha, I get the “Why aren’t you 300 pounds?” question all the time too. My secret is having a bunch of men around who eat it before I do! I also run and do really watch what I eat…most of the time.

    There are so many things I love about these brownies! The Fall twist, the fact that the base is a boxed mix (thank you) and the chocolate/pumpkin combination. So perfect for Halloween!

      I recommend refrigerating them, but it’s not absolutely necessary.
