Easy and delicious fall-inspired brownies that come together in less than an hour using a boxed mix!


For the pumpkin cheesecake mixture:

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

For the brownies:

  • 1 (18 ounce or 19 ounce) box fudge brownie mix

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom only (or spray with cooking spray) of a 9 inch square pan.
  2. Beat pumpkin cheesecake mixture ingredients in a medium bowl on low speed until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, prepare brownie batter as directed on the box. Pour 3/4 of the brownie batter into the pan. Evenly spread pumpkin cheesecake mixture over brownie batter. Spread the remaining 1/4 of brownie batter over pumpkin mixture.
  4. Using a knife, cut through the batter to create a swirled marble effect.
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle is removed almost clean.
  6. Cool completely and cut into squares. Store in a covered container in refrigerator.
