So happy to have cute Carrie from My Recipe Confessions back today! Her Pumpkin Brownies look absolutely amazing!! So thick & rich, yes please!! Thanks for being here, Carrie! Take it away, girl. Pumpkins and the fall season go together like macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or bread and butter. There are so many pumpkin recipes, but trust me, this Pumpkin Brownie recipe is one treat you don’t want to miss out on this Fall! These brownies are so incredibly moist. They can even hold their own without a frosting on top. I am pretty confident that once you try them, you will be making them again and again.
With love from my kitchen to yours, Carrie
