Brownie Pumpkin Cheesecake

Before baking

After Baking

1 box brownie mix
(and ingredients needed for mix)
2 packages softened cream cheese
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 c. melted chocolate chips

Make box of brownies according to directions on box. Pour into a 10" spring form pan and cook for 30 min. Beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, and spice. Pour mixture over cooked brownie except for 1/2 cup of the mixture. Mix remaining 1/2 cup mixture with the 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips. Put chocolate/pumpkin mixture into a frosting bag and decorate a "pumpkin face" on top. Bake 40 minutes at 350. Cool in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

Haylee's Note:
I got this recipe from a Pillsbury magazine. If you don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money for pumpkin pie spice you can just use a combination of allspice, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger. If you didn't want to make this for Halloween, I thought it would be yummy to just mix in non-melted chocolate chips throughout the mixture! Either way it is pretty yummy!
