Total Time55 mins
Servings: 9 x13" pan

Ingredients

  • 1 18 ounce package of brownie mix

For the pumpkin swirl

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray. Optional, but recommended: line dish with parchment paper.
  • Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin puree.
  • Add the flour, spices, baking soda, and salt, and mix until well combined.

To assemble:

  • Pour brownie batter into prepared pan.
  • Scoop dollops of pumpkin dough on top of brownie batter.
  • Use a butter knife to swirl the pumpkin dough throughout the brownie. It is a thick dough, but it will swirl - I promise!
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes. Watch it closely and do not over bake. You want the center set, but a toothpick should still have some crumbs on it when it comes out of the oven.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Cut and enjoy!
