Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Pumpkin season is not over yet people! I make and eat pumpkin desserts all year round if we’re being completely honest here, but I do feel there is an official pumpkin season. That season starts September 1st, and ends December 31st. We have one month left to enjoy pumpkin in its fullest glory and I am going to do just that. Don’t worry though, I have many many other seasonal flavors planned for the next month, so pumpkin is probably getting one of its last shout outs of the year today.

These brownies are dense, just how I like a good brownie, and rich with fudgey chocolate flavor! That would be marvelous all on its own, but just wait til you sink your teeth into that creamy pumpkin swirled center! This brownie is bringing the best of both worlds, pumpkin and chocolate together. A lovely combination for any sweet treat. Make these for your upcoming holiday get-together! They are as beautiful as they are delicious and will leave everyone deeply impressed and begging for more!

Drop spoonfuls of pumpkin swirl batter onto brownie batter in pan.

These pumpkin brownies look amazing Tiffany! Love pumpkin and chocolate together and the swirl is so pretty 🙂

These look so moist and fudgy—and the pumpkin swirl is so pretty. Gotta try these before pumpkin season ends!

I just made these and found the batter to be waaaaaay to thick to swirl the pumpkin.
