While some of you were doing circles around the mall or logging miles on the highway, I was in my kitchen perfecting my new favorite fudgey, moist, chocolate pumpkin brownies. I loved how these turned out so much that I put them in pretty boxes and gave them out as holiday gifts to my family, friends, & neighbors. They are easy to whip up and can easily be adapted to accommodate gluten or dairy- free diets…feel free to ask me for substitutions!
