Peanut Butter Pumpkin Fudge Brownies

These three ingredient treats are more like rich fudge than fluffy cake brownies. The dense, fudge-y texture comes from the can of pumpkin you will use in place of other ingredients.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Fudge Brownies Recipe


  • One box of brownie mix
  • One 15 oz. can of pumpkin
  • Six peanut butter cups (or more if using miniatures)

Peanut Butter Cup Topping


  • Preheat oven according to package directions.
  • Grease a metal or glass rectangular cake pan.
  • Cut peanut butter cups into fourths (if using full size candy).
  • Combine the box of brownie mix with one can of pumpkin. Stir until no mix remains.
  • Pour the brownie mixture into the baking pan.
  • Set oven timer for 5 minutes less than instructed by package and bake.
  • Remove pan from oven and place the peanut cups (or pieces) onto the top of nearly baked brownies taking care to space them evenly.
  • Place pan back into oven to allow peanut cups to melt.
  • Remove from oven and use a flat knife or small spatula to spread the melted peanut butter cups and fully cover the tops of the brownies.
  • Allow to cool completely and cut into 3 inch squares (or appropriate size for your cake pan).
