How to make Pumpkin Brownies for Fall
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Preheat the oven and prepare a baking dish.
- Beat the cream cheese, pumpkin, egg. sugar, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box.
- Spread some of the brownie mix into the prepared pan.
- Drop spoonfuls of the pumpkin filling over the brownie batter.
- Spoon the remaining brownie batter over the filling.
- Combine the two mixtures with a picturesque swirl.
- Allow the brownies to cool before cutting.
Your filling might be a bit too sweet if you accidentally purchase pumpkin pie filling instead of puree. If this happens, don’t use the 1/4 cup sugar that the filling calls for, or it will be way too sweet.
Let the brownies cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into them. When they’re piping hot from the oven, they’ll do nothing but lose their shape and burn your mouth if cut too soon!
This is a pretty popular debate. As long as you can mix the eggs into the brownie mix without over beating the mix, you’ll be in the clear.
You don’t need to. These pumpkin brownies will stay fresh at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Recipe Tips and Notes
- For best results, make sure to use a fudge brownie mix, not a plain brownie mix. It’ll have the richest consistency that way.
- Remember to let the brownies cool before cutting them! They can still be a bit warm, but they shouldn’t be piping hot.
- Spread the pumpkin filling as evenly as possible onto the first layer of brownie batter, that way each slice of brownie has an equal amount of pumpkin filling.
