Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies

IMG_6347-1

Welcome fall. I’ve always been a fan of pumpkin flavored food and drinks in the fall, and knowing fall just started and it’s the season where coffee shops are starting to sell pumpkin flavored drinks, I wanted to create a fall brownie. Pumpkin and chocolate are one of my favorite combinations to use in the fall, because it gets you into the fall spirit. I made pumpkin chocolate brownies for the season. The pumpkin complements the chocolate very well, and gives the brownie a little spice. This recipe is super easy and great for family get-togethers, and you can decorate them for Halloween parties. I look forward to reading your comments! Happy Fall!
