Pumpkin Spice Brownies

Time is flying, it really is. I remember when mom and dad (my in-laws) booked their tickets to visit us. It was in the beginning of this year, I remember saying oh that’s so far and they are here now. Wow I don’t even know where all these months in between went by. But the good news is that are here for next 3 weeks, yay! Family time is always the best and I am so glad this year both our parents visited us.

What did you guys do this weekend? We went to a state fair and it was really fun. I tried deep-fried Oreos for the first time! I have to confess as gross as it sounds, it wasn’t that bad. I mean I always thought it would be awful but it wasn’t. Of course it’s not something that I would like to eat everyday but it was fun to try it! Other than that I also baked some pumpkin spice brownies and frosted them with this amazing Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter frosting!

Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter

You guys know how much I love pumpkin and peanut butter and so imagine my excitement when I received this cute #PSiloveyou box from folks at Peanut Butter & Co. featuring their new Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter! These guys took their delicious peanut butter and blended it with real pumpkin and warm pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to create their first ever limited edition peanut butter. Sounds yum? It sure is!

Pumpkin Spice Brownies Recipe

Brownies are one of the easiest things to make. You don’t even need a mixer to make these, at least I never use. One bowl and a wire whisk, that’s all you need to make these delicious brownies! Don’t you love such easy recipes? I sure do! I used Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder in this recipe and that’s why my brownies look so dark in color. I love love dark chocolate but if you don’t use regular cocoa powder in place. It would work just as well.

I did not use a lot of sugar in the frosting because a) brownies are sweet and b) the peanut butter has some sweetness as well but like always feel free to adjust to taste.

And now some good news! The folks at Peanut Butter & Co. are kind enough to give one of my readers their new #PSILOVEYOU box! Find the details about this giveaway below!

  1. I want to make your brownie recipe. The brownies look so pretty! My favorite pumpkin dessert is Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream on top!

  2. Yummmm. Pumpkin spice brownies… sounds seriously so delicious. Have any thoughts on what I could substitute for cream cheese? I’m not a fan of cheese haha.

  3. Manali, these brownies look AMAZING! Your peanut butter frosting is the perfect use of that Peanut Butter & Co. pumpkin flavor. This is the second time today I’ve seen this pumpkin pb and I seriously need to track some down and make these brownies!

  4. Time is flying, Manali — the holidays will be here before we know it! These would be a perfect treat for Halloween with all the chocolate and pumpkin spice! The peanut butter is such a delicious addition too. 🙂

  5. When I saw these brownies my mouth dropped open! They look amazing. That pumpkin frosting looks incredible. And I’m a dark chocolate girl through and through. 🙂

  6. Favorite pumpkin dessert…I don’t have one, I’m more of a savory-food kind of girl, but I will never turn down a bowl of spicy pumpkin soup with butter and roasted pumpkin seeds on top. Mmm! But if I absolutely had to choose, I’d go for a slice of pumpkin pie with cinnamon whipped cream.
