It has been a busy several weeks around here. Once harvest and making wine begins, there is barely a minute to breathe, let alone eat. However, hard work makes you hungry and weirdly, so does standing around. Believe it or not there is a lot of standing around when we make wine; waiting for a tank to fill, waiting for grape deliveries…I could go on and on. Nevertheless, we are starving all the time.
So while I have been sorting grapes, taking Brix readings and eating lots of candy I have also been dreaming about making fudgey chocolate-pumpkin brownies. I’m always amazed at how well pumpkin and chocolate go together, they just work. Have you ever tried it?
I looked at so many recipes when it came to how to put these together, hoping the middle would set with all the chocolate-pumpkin goodness. I suppose a boxed brownie mix and pumpkin swirled in might be an easy way to go but they will NOT taste like this. My teenager mentioned these were the best brownies I had ever made…well, snap.
I know you will love them too.
My photo assistant is never too far away.
The perfect Fall treat! You might have to taste more than one bite.
