Recipe Round-Up: Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Brownies

These are ridiculous.

I mean, seriously ridiculous.
I took my favorite Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, added chocolate chunks instead and threw it all in a pan.
And do you know what!? They taste totally different! I know, I can't explain it either. But the texture on these brownies is out of control. They are moist, chocolaty, dense and delicious. It is comfort food in a pan. 
And, as an added bonus, they do not take hours to make these, one cookie sheet at a time. Nope, it's one pan, 40 minutes, done.
I just can't even handle it.
These are easy. Trust me. Add butter, sugars, vanilla, eggs and pumpkin. Mix it up. 
Then add flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
And then, the chocolate chunks. Pour it all into a pan and BEHOLD:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Brownies.
Please and thank you.


 Don't you just want to sink your teeth into those bad boys?
They are phenomenal with a cup of coffee.
Or as lunch.
They are perfect for the Thanksgiving table, a holiday party or as your own secret stash of heaven.
