I just can't get enough of all of this fall baking fun! The pumpkin craze continues with these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Oreo Chunk Brownies. The marriage of pumpkin, cream cheese, Oreo cookies and brownies is simply divine and to boot, this recipe is super easy! To create this festive and sure-to-impress treat, just pick up a box of your favorite double chocolate brownie mix (I love the richness of Ghiradelli!), a can of pumpkin, a little cream cheese, a few Oreos, some brown sugar and cinnamon, and consider yourself in Pumpkin Cream Cheese Oreo Chunk Brownie heaven!

With the holidays just around the corner, don't forget about this deliciously fun recipe that you can whip up in no time. After all, what's better than pumpkin AND chocolate?! 

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Oreo Chunk Brownies
Recipe adapted from Picky Palate

1 box of double chocolate brownie mix (plus ingredients that the mix requires)
4 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
10 Oreo cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8×8 inch baking dish with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray (or, I used my beloved Wilton bar pan, without the foil).
Prepare double chocolate brownie mix according to the directions on the packaging. Transfer batter to prepared baking dish, spreading evenly.
Place cream cheese, brown sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl. Beat until creamy and smooth. Place dollops over brownie batter then take a knife and swirl pumpkin mixture through brownies. Top and gently press broken up pieces of Oreo Cookies into pumpkin layer. Bake for 40-50 minutes (or about half the time in a Wilton bar pan), until cooked through. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
Makes 9-12 servings. Enjoy!
