Pumpkins, Squash, Gourds, Sweet Potatoes, Yams...you name it! If it's orange and it's not a carrot I don't like it!. Believe me, I've tried, very hard, but a single bite won't go down my throat.
I don't cook them, I don't know how to cook them and never been interested in them until this Fall, when the entire bloggy community is going head over hills over pumpkins and since now I'm blogging...well what to do!
I got a lot of good suggestions. This was among them, recipe and all courtesy of Paula D. Wilson, one of my FB readers. She promised me I would not be able to taste the pumpkin in these brownies and I thought.....what do I have to lose!
They are soft, fudgy and so chocolaty! I followed the recipe to the T...well there are only 2 ingredients as you probably know. Just added some chocolate chips and M&M's as I do with all my brownies! Oh My!!!
Just grab the milk and keep them coming!
I want to thank Paula for her help and for sharing her recipe with me and let me try some pumpkin without really tasting it!!! how great is that?

1 Box Brownies (18 -20oz) I used Ghirardelli's Ultimate Brownie Mix
1 can (15 oz) Pumpkin Puree
M&M's candy (optional)
Chocolate Chips (optional)
Seasonal Candy (optional)
Mix together Brownie Mix (no eggs, no oil, no water) Just the powder with the Pumpkin Puree. It's going to be a thick mix. Pour it into a 13x9 baking dish and bake for 18-24 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
Let it cool, cut in squares and decorate the brownies any way you like it. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 3 minutes Baking Time 18-24 Minutes
