Brownies have always been my favorite when it comes to dessert. No cookie, cupcake or doughnut can compete with a chocolaty brownie — whether store-bought, homemade or from a box mix. However, I’m very particular when it comes to making them. To this day, whenever I whip up a batch of brownies, I let them sit overnight and eat them the next day when they have completely cooled (and become extra dense) because I think they taste way better that way.

So, with Halloween just around the corner, it’s only fitting that I make a batch of brownies to celebrate — and you should too! Who needs candy when you can make a tray of these sweet treats right at home? And, they’ll taste great the next day, too! 😉

A seasonal favorite combined with a classic chocolate dessert makes for one very sweet treat. To achieve the perfect orange and brown swirls, bake the brownie only using 1/3 of the batter and then pour the remaining with the pumpkin puree to create the pattern.
