Easy Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies

Looking for an easy to make, sweet, pumpkin treat? Do you love fudgey, thick brownies? Then I have the perfect fall treat for you!

Behold – you can make your own pumpkin chocolate brownies with just four simple ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of chocolate brownie mix
  • 1 can of pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp of all spice
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • (or 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, which I didn’t have on hand so I mixed up my own fall spice blend)

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a 8×8 baking pan (cook time may vary by the size or the baking pan you use along with the thickness of your brownie)
  • Mix pumpkin, brownie mix and spices together until everything is well incorporated
  • Spread in your baking pan evenly
  • Pop in the oven and bake for 30-45 min (until completely set)
  • Let cool, then chow down!

OR

  • Frost them for some extra sweetness!!! (optional)

OPTIONAL – Spiced Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups confectioners sugars
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (or to taste) (substitute with cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice if you do not have pumpkin pie spice)
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • Food coloring (if desired!)

Directions:

  • Place room temperature unsalted butter in a stand or hand mixer and mix on medium speed until it is fluffy and whipped
  • gradually add in the confectioners sugar while mixing
  • mix in the vanilla, milk and spices
  • Add food coloring while it is still mixing

(I tried to make mine orange and my husband said it turned out looking more like peanut butter…)

  • Frost brownies once they have cooled completely

The spiced buttercream is VERY sweet. I might try this recipe again with a pumpkin cheesecake frosting (per my husband’s recommendation) – but they are simply delicious without frosting at all too! This buttercream might pair well with a spice cake cupcake or a plain vanilla cupcake that needs a touch of fall flavor.

I hope you enjoy these easy chocolate pumpkin brownies!
