Swirled Fall Brownies

Swirled fall brownies??!!


Hum, in fact it is not fall where I live, as not only we do not have 4 seasons, but we are also in summer (almost).

So, why fall? Well, Autumn is by far my favorite season and I miss it a lot. The colors, the smells, the weather, all about it.

In my home country we do have 4 seasons, and I have fond memories from my childhood, eating hot roasted chestnuts fresh from the artisan clay ovens so typical of my Portugal.

Thinking about my friends from Europe and the US, I decided to create a recipe that exudes fall. From the smell fresh out of the oven, to the taste, so yummy and so typical, this recipe is a gem.

Curious? These brownies are made with pumpkin, pumpkin spice and dark chocolate. They are quick to make, easy, I mean, fool-proof, as all my recipes.

I am really proud of this one, and I hope all of you will also love it as much as I do.
