Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

So I'm officially moved into my new townhouse! (pictures to come) After way too many trips back and forth between east ave and our new place... we are done!! Wooohooo! We spent the last two weeks hauling loads of stuff and are almost all the way unpacked. I decided to take last night off from unpacking to break in the new kitchen! I was perusing a new blog I just discovered Megan's Munchies, she's obsessed with pumpkin... a woman after my own heart! Since the autumn weather is slipping in, (how did it go from 80's to 50's in a week???) I've been craving autumn style foods. There were a ton of things I wanted to make from her blog but I decided on the pumpkin choclate chip brownies and man were they good!

Super fast to whip up and amazingly moist and chocked full of spicy flavors! mmmmmm Maybe I'll go have another slice now :D

how seriously cute is that mug... maria got it for me from anthropology... love that store!

I think pumpkin in chocolate brownies sounds like a great idea. It would cut the sweetness a little and round out the flavours. Great idea.
ps, the mug is seriously cute.
