I was in Target yesterday and found these Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. First I thought I will make cookies, then I decided on brownies. So I looked in the pantry and decided on Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Brownies with Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. My Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies were so good, I thought these would be great since it is getting close to pumpkin season.
These brownies are very moist and more like a cheesecake bite with some brownie added, you can leave out the M&Ms, but why not add the extra goodness of chocolate, crunch and a little more spice.
After brownies are baked you can take out of the pan and slice into 16 pieces.
- Pumpkin Swirl
- 3 oz of softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin puree
- 1 large egg
- 3 TB of white granulated sugar
- 1 ts ground cinnamon
- 1/4 ts ground nutmeg
- For Brownies:
- 1 box of brownie mix
- (oil, water and eggs for mix)
- M&M Pumpkin Spice
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 8" or 9" square pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray
In Medium bowl, mix brownie batter, oil, water and eggs as called for on box.
Pour 3/4 of batter into pan.
In electric mixer, beat filling ingredients (starting with pumpkin and cream cheese first) then when smooth add the other ingredients.
Add the filling mix on top of the brownie layer.
Add the remaining brownie mixture and with a knife swirl the two together.
Then add 1/2 a bag of M&Ms on top.
Bake for 45 minutes or until done.
Cool completely in refrigerator.
Take foil out of pan and cut into 16 pieces.
I first saw this post on The Comfort of Cooking and adapted it. I hope you will try these Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Brownies with Pumpkin Spice M&Ms.
