A MOIST CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CAKE RECIPE

I love super simple dessert recipes like this Chocolate Pumpkin Snack Cake. It whips up very quickly and it tastes completely homemade! No one will know you used a boxed brownie mix to make these delicious little cake bars!

TIPS FOR MAKING CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CAKE:

  • If the brownie mix you use doesn’t have chocolate chips/chunks in it, you can fold up to ½ cup into the batter before baking.
  • This recipe is made with the DRY brownie mix – do not add the ingredients from the back of the box.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  • You can also just spray the baking pan with nonstick spray but I like being about to pull the brownies right out of the pan with the parchment.
