Tips for Making this recipe
Make the swirl. When you are swirling the chocolate and pumpkin layers together you want to make sure you don’t overmix them or the chocolate work will overtake the flavor of the pumpkin. You just want to run the butter knife through the brownies until you see a pretty pattern start to emerge.
Keep them from sticking. If you normally have a problem with your brownie sticking to your pans you can just place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the brownie pan with the parchment sticking out of two of the sides. This way it creates a handle to lift your brownies out of your pans.
Use homemade Pumpkin Puree. If you want an even more amazing flavor, use homemade pumpkin puree.
Use homemade pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie spice is super easy to make and I much prefer using it over the store bought.
Dip the knife in water for easy cutting. When it comes time to cut the brownies I dip my knife into some hot water then dry it off and slowly make my cuts, repeating as needed.
Cool brownies completely. As tempting as it may be to dive right in once they are done, letting them cool completely will make it much easier to cut and the brownies will not fall apart.
Variations of this recipe
Use Boxed brownie mix. I love using homemade brownie mix, but if you are running short on time you can make these fudgy pumpkin brownies with a boxed mix. Just make the boxed brownies according to the package directions and then make the pumpkin swirl mixture and add follow the rest of the directions.
Add Chocolate Chips. If you want to add more flavor to these brownies, you can add 1 cup of chocolate chips into the brownie mixture or place them on top of the brownies before putting them in the oven. You can use dark chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips when you are making these easy brownies.
Make them Halloween Brownies. You can add some candy eyes on top of the brownies after they come out of the oven for a simple Halloween dessert.
Pumpkin Puree. You can use a can of pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin puree when you are making these pumpkin brownies.
