    I love that you used the cinnamon we got at BlogHerFood. I think I’ve used half of mine already. Do you think it makes a difference, it sure smells fabulous. What a fun combination of flavors.

    Yum these look fantastic! I have been searching for delish pumpkin recipes and I definitely found one here. I love butterscotch too!

    btw… how did you find that template that you typed the recipe on.. it is the note book looking paper and the end of this post. I understand it may be a custom template but how did you go about making it and where did you get it?

    I love the fact that you seem to be able to put pumpkin in everything this fall. I have made a few pumpkin items ( ) but you have really knocked the pumpkin out of it!!!! Thank you for you inspiration. Have a great day..

    I can’t believe how good these look! So hard not to drool over these things… I keep thinking it’s because I’m 7 months pregnant. But I really think it’s just because I’m in love with sweets. Thanks for the recipe, my husband and 2-yr-old will love it. And, of course, so will me and the baby-to-be.

    Jenny, these gooey pumpkin butterscotch brownies look so yum! I bet they would be great right off the spoon. I think you are back from your adventures?? Can’t wait to hear all the details 🙂 xo

    Anne says:

    Just a note for anyone trying this, do NOT use a stand mixer, the texture was bad after incorporating all the air. Also, the butterscotch chips seemed to disappear. 🙁 For those of you that don’t like pumpkin, my taste testers couldn’t pick up the flavor (nor could I) so you’re safe.

    Kristen says:

    this looks great, I’m bookmarking to try them out

    Ann Brown says:

    I just made these last night for a recipe group I’m in. Common ingredient this month is Pumpkin. I thought, “this is a risky combination, there is NO WAY this will taste good.” But I was wrong, it tastes wondeful! But they are soooooooo bad for you! Jenny, how do you bake all of this stuff and stay small? Do you run a million miles a day?

    Alyson says:

    Could these be made in a 9 x 13 pan? Would the cooking time need to be adjusted??

    Amanda says:

    I made these over the weekend and the pumpkin taste is more prevalent when they are hot out of the oven. However, even when cool, the cinnamon and butterscotch are subtly tasty. These are great and gooey and I ended up microwaving them and topping with vanilla ice cream…yum!

    Krisin says:

    I made these, and they’re delicious. One suggestion, though – make sure not to overfill the pan, and don’t put any butterscotch ice cream topping around the edges. My batter filled my pan up almost all the way, and the butterscotch ice cream topping seeped up the sides, bubbled over onto the bottom of my oven, set off all my smoke alarms, and made the edges all hard. But aside from that, they’re delicious.

    […] I was pretty sure these brownies would change the course of my entire life.  I was so excited to eat them I could hardly contain myself.  The batter was so good….the brownies…not so much.  They were basically a gooey mess.  I think they might work better in a jelly roll pan and with less or no ice cream topping.  Recipe from Picky Palate.

    Just one question, if I want to make the cake from scratch, how many cups of flour do I have to use??
