I’ve partnered up with Pillsbury to bring you some great holiday treats this year. While I love cooking from scratch, having a busy home life can hinder those plans sometimes. And who doesn’t have a pantry full of Pillsbury cake mixes and frosting?

Have you seen the new holiday flavors on the shelves? The Pumpkin Cookie Mix? The Caramel Apple Cookie Mix?

Today, you get to try (or I guess, drool) over these fantastic bars.

Pumpkin Fudge Brookies: a fudgy brownie layered topped with chocolate chip Pumpkin cookies and fudge frosting!

I originally named these bars Pumpkin Brookies. But after trying them, and eating nearly the entire batch myself, I think the name “FUDGE” had to be included.

From the fudgy brownie layer, to the rich Fudge frosting….these will leave your sweet tooth satisfied!

And oh my gosh they are so thick too! Mine took about 40-45 minutes to bake, and they still had a little soft gooey layer in the brownie. Once you stick them in the refrigerator, this layer will harden and be like a fudge consistency. I’m telling you, make these today!! Seriously. Head to the grocery store, get what you need and make them today.

Oh. Did I mention one lucky Shugary Sweets reader can win their own Celebration Starter Kit? This includes some Pillsbury product and a $100 Visa card. Thank you Pillsbury!! Be sure to scroll down past the recipe to enter the Rafflecopter form. So easy!! Good luck.
