- Prepare brownies as instructed on the box.
- Remove from oven and let cool completely before proceeding.
- To make the second layer, cream together the butter, pumpkin purÃ©e, and vanilla extract using and electric mixture. The butter may look chunky, but don't worry, it will smooth out later.

- Spread the pumpkin mixture onto the cooled brownies in an even layer. Place in the fridge to chill while you prepare the third layer.
- To make the third layer, in a small microwavable bowl, combine the baking chocolate and butter. Microwave at 50% for 60-90 seconds, or until the mixture is melted. Stir well.
- Remove the brownies from the fridge, and spread the chocolate mixture in an even layer over top of the second layer.
- Place the brownies back in the fridge to cool completely before slicing into small squares.
