Pumpkin S’more Brownies

Did I really just do this!?

You better believe it baby.

When I came up with the idea to make Pumpkin S’more Brownies I had this picture in my head of exactly how they would taste, look, and how they would come together.  As far as baking goes, the easier the better.

That picture in my head looked nothing like this nor was I prepared for the 3 failed attempts that led to this batch.  One of them was barely edible while the other two contributed to my “no sugar or fat or baked goods of any kind” diet that I start and stop on a daily basis.

After this successful batch of brownies that diet is off.  Indefinitely.

I will say this about this dessert…it could be considered low fat.  After all, pumpkin is the main ingredient in the brownies and chocolate does have its health benefits.

Later next week I may have another version of these that includes an extra layer and even more pumpkin flavor.  I’m just not sure if this new version falls into the “cursing the diet” category or “accepting the fact that baked goods aren’t considered a major food group” category.  I’ll let you know if it’s any good.

In the meantime these four ingredient brownies will keep your sweet tooth satisfied and the inner kid in you screaming for more.  Oh wait, that was my actual kids screaming for more.  Too bad.  They’ll have to find me to get any and after years of listening to them scream I’m getting really good at drowning the sound out.  The brownies help too.

Ingredients

  • 1 - 15 oz can pureed pumpkin

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 sleeve of graham crackers, about 8

  2. Lay the whole graham crackers on the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl mix the pumpkin puree and dry brownie mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread evenly over the graham crackers.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until set.

  14. Pumpkin in brownies is just so delicious, but to pair it with the s’mores too…AWESOME!!!

  15. mom says:

    Looks sooo yummy!!! I bought all the ingredients to make Today for a family get together but now reading the directions I don’t think I know how to make them :s do you make the brownie mix by following the directions on the back then mk is in pumpkin or is it just brownie mix powder and pumpkin and that’s all??? Also how do you layer the graham crackers? Do you make 2 layers? Do you break the graham crackers in half and that will be the size of each serving or how do you cut it after with full graham crackers layered?? Uhg I am so stressed…I think I am going to mess this recipie up :( if you can please respond soon so I can get them right before the party

    • Krista says:

      SO sorry!! I updated the recipe a little by changing the wording. I hope that helps. It actually is just simple as it looks in the sense that there aren’t any additional ingredients. And I shouldn’t have used the word layer when describing the graham crackers so I changed that. Thank you for the questions! They help make my recipes more user friendly. I hope it turned out wonderful!
