    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 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!

    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?

    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. ๐Ÿ™ 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.

  5. i have recently fallen in love with vietnamese cinnamon. have you tried that? so good, i think it’s the same as what you used here.
    i love all these pumpkin recipes cropping up….

  6. 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.

    There is no amount for cinnamon…how much did you use? I REALLY want to make these…I’m in love with butterscotch anything!!

  8. I don’t know if I will have the self control to wait the HOUR to let this cool as indicated in your directions!! Tell me, did you do it?? If so you are stronger than I!! They look amazing and I love chocolate, caramel and pumpkin! Heavenly! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. what an easy recipe. I love it. Yesterday I made chocolate pudding with pumpkin puree. Instant pudding, 1 cup milk and 1 cup pumpkin puree. So good.

  10. 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?

  11. This recipe really tickles my tastebuds! Sometimes when short on time, I love to use a mix. This looks nice, easy, and delicious! Dont you just love that cinnamon?

  12. 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.
