Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

Happy Wednesday and first day of October!

Since fall is officially in session there needs to be a dessert post…right? These brownies will not disappoint. And did I mention one of the ingredients is pumpkin? Enough said.

{Side note} There are so many fun fall activities I want to accomplish this season. New soup recipes, pumpkin carving and lots and lots of baking. One of my goals is to complete the #bakingbootcamp challenge. Do any of you follow Joy the Baker? If not, you need to right this instant.  The current recipe challenge is Apple Pie Biscuits. Hold me to it! The challenge is on.

Fall desserts are taking over and I am not complaining. I know there is a running joke that as soon as fall is in the air, every other girl is posting pumpkin lattes, desserts and pancakes. How can we not?? Pumpkin is just that good. These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies by Punch Bowl are just plain delicious. I added chocolate chips to this recipe because..well..why not. Keep in mind this recipe does take some time. It is not as simple and quick as other recipes, but it is so worth it.
