Pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spices, cream cheese, cocoa, chocolate chips…how can you resist?


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts or pecans
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

    1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Butter an 8″x 8″ baking dish.

    2. WHISK together in a bowl the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, stir together butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Mix in eggs one at a time. Gradually add flour mixture; stir to combine evenly. Divide batter into two bowls.

    3. BLEND the cocoa powder and chocolate chips into the first bowl. In second bowl, stir in pumpkin purée, granulated sugar, cream cheese, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.

    4. SPREAD half of the chocolate batter into the bottom of the baking dish. Follow with half of pumpkin batter. Repeat layers, ending with a pumpkin layer. Gently pull a long kitchen knife or skewer through the layers in a wavy motion to create a marbled pattern.

    5. BAKE until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool brownies in pan on a wire rack.
