3 Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

IT IS PUMPKIN WEEK here at RMK! I must say this has got to be one of my top theme weeks that I look forward to each year. I love fall and pumpkin week always tells me that fall is here. I have some delicious pumpkin recipes lined up for you including a flashback recipe that is one of my favorite pumpkin recipes.

To start off, we are beginning with an easy one. This recipe makes brownies using 3 ingredients – a brownie mix, some cinnamon, and a can of pumpkin. It results in a dense fudgy brownie! Then they get taken up a notch further by topping them with a simple buttercream recipe with cinnamon added to it to highlight that warm cinnamon spice that pairs perfectly with pumpkin. Three shouts for this 3-ingredient brownie and three shouts for pumpkin week. I hope you enjoy the recipes!
