Brownie Batter

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • Mini chocolate chips for topping, optional


Brownie Batter

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and chocolate until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. (alternatively, melt in the microwave 1-2 minutes)
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Whisk in melted chocolate mixture until smooth. Slowly fold in flour, cocoa, and salt until batter is just combined. Set batter aside.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl

  • In a medium bowl, beat softened cream cheese, sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
  • Divide mixture in half and place one half in a separate bowl. Fold pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin into cream cheese mixture.
  • Scrape half of brownie batter into prepared pan. Spoon dollops of half plain cream cheese mixture and half pumpkin cream cheese mixture on top. Use a knife to swirl the cream cheese into the brownie batter. Repeat layers with remaining brownie batter and cream cheeses. Top brownies with mini chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake brownies at 350F 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs sticking to it. Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire cooling rack then chill completely before slicing into squares. Enjoy!
