Pumpkins are Precious.
These extra fudgy pumpkin brownies were so good, and I have Kat to thank! 🙂
Though you can have your hands on a pumpkin all year round clearly, the ember months are the pumpkin months. As soon as you hear “fall,” that means everything pumpkin has officially begun. And of course, the grocery stores will always take advantage of it; literally, pumpkin spice everything!
To be honest, this is the first time I will be making a pumpkin recipe during the pumpkin season, and I decided to make everything from scratch.
First stop: I needed some fresh pumpkins!
In order to make any kind of pumpkin recipe, you will need pumpkins. After a couple of research, I made up my mind to buy the small sized ones, and they did not disappoint.
Secondly, the mouthwatering finger-licking recipe is necessary. I would like to thank the fantastic Kat whose original recipe I modified to make these. You can find that original recipe here.
Just for personal preferences, I subbed butter with olive oil, I subbed brown sugar with coconut sugar, and for white sugar, I used stevia. Also, I used regular milk instead of heavy cream. Please see recipe card below for the exact quantity. Every other thing pretty much remained the same!
Gathering ingredients was gold.
Well, what else can I say? I had almost everything I needed to get the ball rolling right from my pantry. How cool was that?
Prepping the puree.
To begin with the process of making the best fudgy pumpkin brownies, I made my puree. I washed the pumpkins, wiped them dry, cut them up, clean them out, and roasted them up. After they are cooled down, I peeled the skin and used the food processor to “blend” it. Though some people may boil the pumpkin and then process it, but the simplest possible way to intensify flavors is always to roast. And the puree were so flavorful that proves am right. lol
Then the fun part.
When you are ready to begin, add all the ingredients for the pumpkin filling into a bowl using a hand-held- mixer, mix well together, set aside. Melt the chocolate, set aside. Then the combination begins…
…Happy to report that my entire brood wanted extra bars…
I am glad I waited and made this fudgy pumpkin brownies; it’s worth the wait. What’s so rewarding is that I made everything from scratch, yippee! Call it a labor of love. 🙂
