Recipe for Triple Treat Halloween Bars


Cookies and brownies made with pumpkin are especially popular in the fall, and are almost always included at Halloween parties, gatherings, and of course, the annual Halloween BOO-ffet. Triple Treat Halloween Squares are moist pumpkin brownies, but they include a generous swirl of both chocolate and cream cheese, making them special enough to serve company or share with friends.

Canned pumpkin saves time, but ambitious cooks who have plenty of time can certainly prepare pumpkin at home and use it in these squares; the results will be identical. Because of the attractive marbling of the pumpkin, chocolate, and cream cheese batters, a light dusting of powdered sugar is all that is needed to top the squares.

48 Bars

2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 15 oz. can (2 cups) pure pumpkin, (not pumpkin pie mix)

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Batter:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar

Powdered sugar, for dusting

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. Line a 17 x 11 inch jelly-roll pan with parchment or spray with non-stick spray.

  3. Cream the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and pumpkin until light and well-mixed.

  4. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; add to the pumpkin mixture.

  5. Measure 2 1/2 cups of the pumpkin mixture and place in a bowl.

  6. Pour the remaining batter onto the prepared pan.

  7. Place the chocolate chips in a microwaveable container; microwave 1 to 2 minutes or until melted; stir until smooth.

  8. Stir the melted chocolate into the reserved pumpkin batter.

  9. In a separate bowl, whip the cream cheese with the egg and 1/3 cup sugar until smooth.

  10. Drop spoonfuls of the two batters evenly over the top of the pumpkin batter. Run the knife through the batters to swirl.

  11. Bake 20-25 minutes or until the center springs back when pressed lightly and the brownies pull away from the sides of the pan.

  12. Cool completely; sift a little powdered sugar over the top and cut into 48 squares.
