The decadent sweet scent of pumpkin and vanilla bourbon within these brownies is one treat you simply can’t pass up trying. 




  • 1 1/2 cups (360 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips or baking bar, chopped
  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs (165 grams)
  • 1/4 cup (60 grams) bourbon whiskey
  • 2 teaspoons (12 grams) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) salt


  • 7.5 oz (213 grams) pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs (110 grams)
  • 1/4 cup (60 grams) heavy cream
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons (76 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt



  1. Heat oven to 350°F (175°C).  Line a 13 x 9 in (33 x 23 cm) baking pan with aluminum foil allowing excess foil to hang over opposite ends of the pan for easy removal.  Generously coat bottom and sides of foil with baking spray with flour; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, microwave chocolate and butter in 30 second increments, mix between each interval, about 1 1/2 minutes or until 75% of the chocolate has melted. The rest of the chocolate will melt from residual heat; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk sugar, eggs, bourbon and vanilla.  Spoon chocolate mixture one-third at a time mixing thoroughly until well blended.  
  4. In a small bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix into the chocolate mixture and pour into the baking pan.  Using an offset spatula, spread batter evenly to the corners and edges of the pan.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk all pumpkin swirl ingredients together until well blended.  Spoon 3 lines, 1 in (2.5 cm) wide of pumpkin mixture lengthwise across the chocolate.  Using a butterknife, starting at one end of the pan, drag the knife perpendicular through the chocolate and pumpkin lines changing direction once reached to the opposite end of the pan to create a swirl effect. Continue this zig-zag motion until you reach the opposite end of the pan from the start. 
  6. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean with little to no crumbs.  Remove from the oven and allow brownies to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan.  Using a butterknife, cut brownies into 24 squares.  ENJOY!
