Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies


If you read my last post, you probably guessed that I would be trying one of the pumpkin recipes tonight! You are SO right! Of course I would! I decided to try the brownies because I had all the ingredients on hand. The brownies were very moist and tasty. They had more of a cake texture than a brownie texture. I added a little extra stevia clear because the batter did not taste sweet enough! I would definitely make these again, but I would add a little more cocoa and more chocolate chips!!! My brownies decided to pose with the awesome apron and spatula that foodbuzz surprised me with in the mail today! If you haven't checked out foodbuzz, you should! It is a great places for foodies to share recipes and food information. Check it out in my sidebar!

Oooh lovely apron and spatula! I love Foodbuzz because they never fail to make me happy :o)

I am absolutely loving your pumpkin goods! I never knew there were so many possibilities, and you never fail to make them look absolutely fabulous!

I personally love "cakey" brownies. And if your plan is to add more chocolate next time, I am TOTALLY on board!!

Yum! I love pumpkin and chocolate. I usually add them together in a quick-bread and not a brownie. Very nice idea. I also recognize that apron and spatula;)
