naughty pumpkin swirl brownies

happy election day!
there is so much excitement around... it's the first day i wish i had tv in a year...

anyway... i was out n about on the interweb the other day...
searching for something pumpkin... ya know, being that it's fall n all...

i bought a can of pumpkin, with no thought of what to do with it.
i usually make the classic pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips...

but that just wasn't going to cut it this time...

so I revamped this martha recipe so it could use a brownie mix,

my only disclaimer: day 1 these are definitely more cake-y than fudgy.
mine was oozing brownie goodness out the top and those parts were kind of pumpkin pie meets lava cake. hello?! 
 ...but after it sat, covered overnight... super moist and fudge-y.
and soooooo worth the wait... i may have had it for breakfast for 2 days... 
its dense, so be prepared to get whacked with flavor...

pumpkin swirl brownies

brownie mix {and whatever the box calls for}
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 Tbs vanilla
1cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups pumpkin {pureed}
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

mix up the brownies as directed on the box, set aside. blend the sugar, eggs, and vanilla in one bowl and the flour, baking powder, and salt in another. mix all of the ingredients together until smooth. add remaining ingredients and mix well.

line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. pour half the brownie mix, then half the pumpkin mixture, and repeat. bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  {I think I ended up baking for at least 50, so be sure and check until only the center is gooey.}

let cool in pan and top with melted chocolate or a ganache
{melted semi-sweet with heavy cream... you won't be sad about it.}

next time i might try it in a 9x13 to see how that changes the texture for fun,
but i was not at all disappointed!!

let me know how it goes if you make them!
