Is Pumpkin Puree And Pumpkin Pie Mix The Same Thing?

These two items are not to be confused. Pumpkin puree is simply pureed pumpkin. Pumpkin pie mix is pumpkin puree that has already been sweetened and flavored. These two pumpkin canned goods can not be swapped out in recipes. 

You can use homemade pumpkin puree if you have some on hand. That choice is up to you. But remember, you will need to add seasoning to it to ready it for this recipe.

If you’d like to make your own pumpkin pie spice, you can try this combination and adjust accordingly if you need more of one particular flavor.

  • 3 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Where is The Nutella In These Brownies?

The hazelnut spread is swirled through the brownie mix. When you pour half of your brownie batter in, it will be followed by droppings bits of Nutella right on top. Then, just use a knife (or even a toothpick) to swirl everything around until you are satisfied with the LOOK. Repeat as you layer.

I find doing it this way really helps give the brownie dish dimension. If you mixed in the batter as a whole, you might not get the color effect that you see here. Or even that mix of flavors when you bite into every delicious corner of your dessert!

How to Know Brownies Are Done? 

Here is a great tip for trying to figure out whether or not any brownie dish is done. Just look at the edges of your pan. If you start to see the brownies pulling away from the edges of the pan, then you are nearly there!

You will also notice that the top will begin to offer a slight bounce back when you touch it. 

Once you see these two signs, grab your toothpick and stick into the center of your dish. If you pull it out and no pumpkin batter is on the fork, turn your oven off and remove your pan.

Try to not dip right where the hazelnut spread is as that will be wet on the toothpick.

Storing 

Your hazelnut pumpkin brownies can be stored at room temperature for a number of days. Naturally, these are best when eaten fresh and warm – as brownies will dry out as they sit. 

You are more than welcome to freeze brownies you don’t plan to eat right away. Simply place any leftovers in a proper freezer-friendly container and store for up to three months. 

Then thaw brownies on the counter or toss in the microwave and reheat for a few seconds for that fresh out of the oven feel. 

If you plan to stack your brownies place wax paper in between to prevent sticking.

Can I Swirl With Cookie Butter In Replace of Nutella 

Absolutely! We love to use cookie butter / Speculoos here at home and often swap out these two ingredients whenever we are in the mood. In fact, the other day, I made Banana Speculoos Cupcake Recipe and they were divine!

This dish would be delicious with Speculoos – give it a go!
