Ingredients

2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 large egg plus 2 egg whites
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
Orange Marshmallow Frosting:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp water
1 tsp orange extract
1 large egg white
Small amount of orange concentrated icing paste (or food coloring)
1/2 jar (3 ½ oz) marshmallow crème


In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, pumpkin, the egg, egg whites, and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Add


flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, spices and salt. Beat on low speed until smooth. Stir in semisweet chocolate pieces.


Spray an 9 x 13 inch pan with nonstick spray. Pour batter into pan; spread evenly. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into 2-inch squares after spreading with orange marshmallow frosting.


Orange Marshmallow Frosting: Place the sugar, water, extract, egg white and icing paste til you get the orange color you want in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, beating constantly with electric hand mixer on high speed til soft peaks form, 2-3 minutes.


Remove from heat. Add marshmallow crème and continue to beat on high speed til stiff peaks form. Spread on brownies and sprinkle with Halloween shaped cake sprinkles. Cut and serve.


TIP: To serve these anytime, bake and cool you brownies, the when mixing your frosting, substitute clear vanilla flavoring for the orange extract and leave out the coloring for a wonderful white marshmallow frosting.

Notes

I made these brownies last night and I just have to say that they are so tasty! I was so curious about the combination of pumpkin and chocolate with orange icing. The brownies are so soft and chewy (the chocolate chips are the perfect addition) and they get even more irresistible the more I eat them! Great recipe!
