These brownies are great for the fall, when pumpkin puree is so readily available in the grocery stores.

How to Make Triple Decker Pumpkin-Chocolate Brownies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream together the butter white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Add the vanilla and all 4 eggs, and mix until smooth.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, and salt. Add 1/3 of the cocoa mixture to the butter mixture, and mix well. Repeat twice more with remaining cocoa mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips. The batter should be thick.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and spread into an even layer with a flat spatula. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  5. For the pumpkin layer, cream together the butter, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract using an electric mixer. It's OK if the butter has some chunks.
  6. Beat in the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Mix until smooth. Continue adding the powdered sugar in 1 cup increments until you reach the consistency of a thick frosting. Beat in the food coloring until thoroughly incorporated.
  7. Spread the pumpkin mixture onto the cooled brownies in an even layer. Let chill in the refrigerator while you proceed with the chocolate ganache layer.
  8. Add baking chocolate and butter to a small microwave-safe bowl, and heat in microwave for 30 to 45 seconds, or until the mixture is melted. Stir well.
  9. Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator, and spread the chocolate ganache evenly over the pumpkin layer. Cover baking dish, and return to refrigerator to chill until ready to slice and serve.
