150g caster sugar
60g light soft brown sugar
3 large
1 tsp extract
100g plain flour
100 milk chocolate chips

    doesn’t happen to Jemma can someone explain please ☺️

    Rarely are there more satisfying things than swiping neighborhood pumpkins
    after Halloween, when the neighbors find them useless, and making all sorts
    of pumpkin delights both sweet and savory. I shall add this to the list.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I’m guessing you can have the brownie mixture on its own without the
    pumpkin cheese cake if u wish

    Not quite the fan of dark chocolate. If i were to substitute it for milk
    chocolate will it change the recipe? especially with the amount of sugar?

  17. Benita Brown on November 6, 2014: (Reply)

    Loved this recipe! Would it work if you swapped the pumpkin for peanut

    What % of dark chocolate do you use? 🙂 I have 2 big bars of 85% but it
    seems to be too strong to do anything with, any ideas? :)

  34. doozer8688 on November 6, 2014: (Reply)

    Hey, there. Why did you guys stop putting the ingredient amounts all cute
    and colorful in the corner throughout the video? Also, what kind of vanilla
    did you use here? It looks thicker than extract but thinner than paste.

  35. alicia ned on November 6, 2014: (Reply)

    Lol I still don’t get what pumpkin tastes like. Someone tell me. I’ve tried
    it and my family always makes stuff with it. And every time I try it. It
    tastes like slime to me. Don’t know why…

  36. najiha mumera on November 6, 2014: (Reply)

    That brownie looks so pretty and delicious!!!!! 

  37. TheHellKiwi on November 6, 2014: (Reply)

    Hi Jemma! Amazing recepie.

    I have a question, what if I have an actual pumpkin? What do I do so that I
    don’t buy the puré?

  38. Hennessy Sabat on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    They look so good

  39. Rainbow Gardens on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    Love this! We will make them for sure! Also, I want the rainbow whisk and
    the tiny grater. :)

    “Free range” eggs?! I didn’t even know they could move under their own

    Hey I am so bored. 

  42. Fair04Weather on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    Why are you using unsalted butter, then adding a pinch of salt??

  43. totalH20 on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    I’ve been told the orange pumpkins you buy at Halloween to make Jack ‘O’
    Lanterns with aren’t very tasty to eat? I’ve got one leftover that hasn’t
    been carved and I was hoping to bake with it but will it ruin my cakes if
    it’s a rubbish orange one? Plus will I be able to roast chunks of pumpkin
    in the oven to make the purée for these brownies? Thanks :)

    Pumpkin pie :)

    Hi Jemma ! Do we need to store the brownies in the fridge or just room
    temperature ?

  48. holaitserin on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    Ah Jemma you’re so great

  49. precious villena on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    Jemma, you forgot to add the cocoa powder in the brownie bits part of the
    recipe :)

    difference between free range eggs and regular eggs?

  64. Aya Yai on November 7, 2014: (Reply)

    I am mostly captivated by the beautiful colour and pattern when it comes
    out of the oven. Great job, I love it!

    hi Jemma! I just wanna know is there anything else you do with your tiny
    grater besides freshly ground nutmeg? I have one just like that and I kinda
    wanna know if you have any other uses for it

    Hey Jemma 🙂 quick questions, why do most recipes call for both brown and
    white sugar? why isn’t it just brown or just white ? and what kind of
    vanilla do you use ? it always looks so thick lmao Thanks a bunch !

    Can I make these brownies without the pumpkin part? Do they bake for the

    Dear Jemma! I wonder what you think about using honey instead of sugar in
    cakes. I mean tastewise will it be very different or will it be most of the
    times good? Thanks for your advice in advance! I love your beautiful
    delicious recipes! Best wishes!

  99. lizzie S. on November 23, 2014: (Reply)

    seems like I’m the only person asking this… what is pumpkin puree? I
