OT: Fall's here, which means...Pumpkin Swirl Brownies!

Those of you who were here on the board last fall and winter may remember that Trader Joe's recipe for Pumpkin Swirl Brownies was quite the hit last year, and lots of you made and loved them.

So...all you Trader Joe's fans...it's time to stockpile TJ's Pumpkin Bread Mix, because it's back in stores for the season!

To recap for everyone: You buy Trader Joe's's Truffle Brownie Mix and Pumpkin Bread Mix, mix them up in separate bowls, then swirl them together in a 9x13 pan and bake them. Then serve them with TJ's Pumpkin Ice Cream, which tastes exactly like frozen pumpkin pie.

The directions/recipe are on Trader Joe's's website: http://www.traderjoes.com/recipes/recipe.asp?rid=91

If you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby, several of our ladies tried the same concept with other brands of brownie mix and pumpkin bread mix (even gingerbread mix), and had great results. And Dreyer's/Edy's has a good pumpkin ice cream, too.

We've already gone through one pan of these at our house, and have FIVE more boxes waiting in the pantry!

And they were great! No Trader Joe 's yet, but used other brands.

I just bought the pumpkin bread mix from Trader Joe's this weekend. Looks like I better go back for the Truffle Brownie mix. That sounds yummy to me. Sometimes something all pumpkin is just too much, but adding the Truffle Brownie mix to it--well, let's just say this girl is gonna be very, very happy!

Hugs, Renee

It sounds like the perfect dessert for Lauren, my 12 year old, and her friends! I will have to keep the recipe in mind the next time she has her friends over. They are big on desserts, so am I and my husband for that matter!
