While preparing for the hurricane, I decided to do a little baking so we would have some food for breakfast and something a little sweet to take the edge off the anxiety. We also had friends staying with us that had to evacuate so I thought they would enjoy something too. I wanted something fallish so pumpkin seemed the way to go.

I had also just purchased some cream cheese so that kind of made my mind up for me – pumpkin cheesecake. But there wasn’t quite enough to make a whole cheesecake so I thought, why not add it to a brownie mix I had on hand and give it a little swirl.

No one was quite certain how the chocolate and pumpkin would go together but, let me tell you, it is now one of theirs and my favorite fall treats. I mean, not only do you get moist fudgy chocolaty brownies but sweet spicy delicious pumpkin pie flavored cheesecake too! Holy cow!

And they are super easy to make. Start with your favorite boxed brownie mix or make your own. We love to use our Crash Fudge Brownies (do you remember the big Yahoo fiasco?) or, for a gluten-free option, our Gluten-free Brownies recipes. Pour prepared brownie mix into a greased 8×8-inch baking dish.

Next mix the cream cheese and pumpkin puree with spices then swirl them through the brownie mix. Bake. That’s it! What you have is a decadent dessert that only takes 15 minutes to put together and about 45 minutes to bake.

Everyone will be drooling way before they come out of the oven, But make them wait, if you can, til they cool, to get the full flavor experience.

    I got to sample these during Hurricane Irma and they were sensational. The intriguing combination of chocolate and spices reminds me of cakes made in Italy. And the texture when I bit into this treat made me swoon. I can’t wait to serve these to friends!
