I’m always looking for easy and delicious Fall treats for my kids to enjoy so when I saw Healthy Pumpkin Brownies somewhere on Pinterest I thought “what could be better?” Well, you know what is better? Double layer frosted pumpkin brownies.
Because frosting is everything, right? These turned out so yummy. Now, because I’m a glutton (and I’m serving a hundred kids in this house) I made 2 boxes of brownies and layered them.
But for normal people with normal sized families I would recommend following the recipe below. Your thighs will thank you. Mine are angry.
Double Layer Frosted Pumpkin Brownies Recipe
- 1 box Family size brownie mix
- 1 can (15oz) pumpkin
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Mix brownie mix and pumpkin together until smooth.
- Spread in 13×9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
- Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
- Allow to cool fully.
- Carefully slide knife around sides to loosen from pan and flip out upside down onto counter or parchment paper.
- Take knife and slice brownie into two layers (just like a cake)
- Cream butter and pumpkin pie spice together.
- Add powdered sugar and beat on low until mixed well.
- Turn mixer to medium speed and beat until fluffy.
- Spread thin layer of frosting on first brownie layer.
- Carefully lay second brownie layer on top.
- Spread remaining frosting on top.
Don’t they look decadent? My kids loved them. Despite making a double batch they were gone in an hour! I’m feeding animals, I tell ya.
These were perfect for my kid who has issues with eggs because of the simple ingredients. I can’t wait to make them again. I might drizzle them with hot chocolate syrup next time!
