Pumpkin-Chocolate Brownies

Pumpkin-Chocolate Brownies

Active Time: 40 mins
Total Time: 4 hrs 5 mins
Yield: 2 dozen


1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate morsels

1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

3 (1-oz.) unsweetened chocolate baking squares, chopped

3 large eggs

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar

2 tablespoons cold brewed coffee

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Parchment paper

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

1 (15-oz.) can of pumpkin

3 large eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


Preheat the oven to 350°. Pour water to a depth of 1 inch in the bottom of a double boiler over medium heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer. Place the first 3 ingredients in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes or until melted. Remove from heat; cool for 10 minutes.

Whisk together 3 eggs, granulated sugar, and the next 2 ingredients in a large bowl. Gradually whisk warm chocolate mixture into egg mixture; cool for 10 minutes.

Grease a 13- x 9-inch baking pan with butter. Line bottom and sides of pan with parchment paper, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides. Grease (with butter) and flour parchment paper.

Sift flour, baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl. Whisk into the chocolate mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan, reserving 2/3 cup.

Whisk together pumpkin, the next 4 ingredients, and the remaining 1/2 tsp. salt; pour over brownie batter in pan. Top with reserved brownie batter, and swirl batter gently 3 times in 1 direction and 3 times in the opposite direction with a knife or the end of a wooden spoon.

Bake at 350° for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 2 hours). Lift brownies from the pan, using parchment paper sides as handles. Gently remove parchment paper, and cut brownies into 24 squares.

Yesterday I bought a pumpkin because I want to learn how to make pumpkin spice latte, but I think I’m going to need more pumpkin! I will take advantage of the fact that Grandma is at home to pamper her with these cupcakes!!

Thank you so much!!!
