Like every fall, pumpkin spice everything takes over the world, and I couldn’t help but share this amazing Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie recipe with you, along side a group of my favorite blogging friends! From pull apart pumpkin cinnamon rolls, to a healthy pumpkin spice snack, we got you covered! You’ll find all the recipes at the end of this post!

Coming back to my Pumpkin cheesecake brownies: they have been on repeat in here since late summer! It’s a perfect dessert for both pumpkin-everything-lovers, as the more reserved, only falling for chocolate types ( like my younger daughter).

Also, and that’s a big plus in my opinion, it’s super easy recipe, that you can whip up on a weekday afternoon! Even with kids around! Actually, let them help! And by help, I mean let them lick all the spoons!

What you’ll need:

  • brownie base ( you can do your brownies from scratch using your favourite recipe, or make a box brownies, like I did! ) 
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin pie filling 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 packages of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1\4 cup chocolate chips 

Prepare a brownie base, don’t bake it yet.

Mix the soften cream cheese with pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar and one egg. Mix it all together well, and pour over the brownie base. Now bake for around 35 to 45 minuets on 350F. Don’t over bake!

Once the Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie is cooled down, melt your chocolate chips, and pour them over ; I usually use a small zip bag with a tiny hole, to get a thin layer.

Serve and enjoy! Jut be carful not to eat them all at once! They disappear very fast!

Also, this recipe is perfect for mason jars, and you can even prepare it overnight! That way you can have it ready in the fridge for all your Halloween gatherings, and have one less thing to worry about! And I think that preparing two different serving options, one for adults, and one for kids, is a great way for making it kid-friendly.

I even made two topping options, one with whipped white chocolate cream, and one with simple whipped cream ( since I know a very special someone who doesn’t like white chocolate).

What you’ll need:

For the crust:

– 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

– 3 table spoons margarine ( or butter)

– 3 tablespoons brown sugar

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the pumpkin cheesecake filling:

– 2 packages of cream cheese ( in room temperature)

– 1 cup of pumpkin puree

– 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice

– 1 cup sugar

For the whipped white chocolate cream:

– 1 cup whipping cream
– 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Optional, only whipped cream :

– 1 cup whipping cream

– 2 tablespoons sugar

Start by combining all of the ingredients for the crust ( remember that the margarine should be really soft). Mix it well together, and press at the bottom of your jars. Set aside.

Now it’s time for the pumpkin cheesecake filling. First beat the cream cheese until it’s smooth, then add sugar, mix some more, and then add the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice.
(You could also use pumpkin pie filling, and skip the sugar and spices. Though I prefer to use the pumpkin puree as it lets me be in control of sugar and the amount of pumpkin spice.)

For the whipped white chocolate cream, beat the whipping cream without any sugar, melt white chocolate chips, and in a bowl ( not in a mixer) combine them together slowly with a spoon. Don’t over mix it as it could separate.

Or whip some whipping cream with sugar.

Pour the pumpkin cheesecake filling over the graham crust layer, and top it with the white chocolate whipped cream. Decorate with a Halloween cupcake topper, and enjoy!

I know that technically it’s already fall, and we should eat apple pies and forget about summer, but with the sunny weather outside, me and my family we’ll keep on eating ice cream!

And since I’m hosting a play group for moms with kids every other week, I’m always on the look out for easy, and kid friendly ways to entertain. Because when hosting moms with kids in ages from one to six, I always need to take in consideration that everyone has different likes and dislikes! Some kids eat alone, and some still need a bit of help, some will love sweet snacks, and some eat only salty ones. But I found that serving ice cream on a sunny day (or frozen yogurt if you prefer) is one of the easiest ways for making everyone happy! Both the younger and older kids love them, I don’t have any preparation to do, and my mommy friends are always in need of a little pick-me-up.

Though I did found a hack to transform one plain vanilla ice cream in to four different yummy flavors, just in seconds. Because lest’s face it, usually everyone want’s different flavor anyway! It’s a simple hack,  but in all it’s simplicity it gets me my favorite pumpkin spice ice cream in seconds! And makes my play dates so much more fun and easy!
