One of our favorite things to do as a family in the fall is to visit a local pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin. Since moving to Texas, we have had to find a new pumpkin patch. While this provides a challenge, it also gives us a chance to start some new traditions.

One of the things that we wanted to do was to create some fun activities each year that will be a part of the fall season beginning. So this year we made the perfect Pumpkin Patch Brownies to enjoy after our trip to the pumpkin patch. An easy, fun Halloween food to make as a family that everyone is sure to love!

Our boys especially loved that they were allowed to eat the ‘grass and dirt!’ What little boy wouldn’t LOVE that?

pumpkin patch brownie Dessert ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix (any brand will do, but Ghirardelli’s Triple Chocolate already has chocolate chips in the mix that make what our boys liked to think were ‘rocks’)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • Green food coloring
  • Kraft jumbo pumpkin marshmallows (they also have smaller sizes that you can use to mix in to create a pumpkin patch that has large and small pumpkins in it)

directions to Make pumpkin patch brownie dessert

Step 1

First, bake the brownies according to the recipe on the box. (Replace the oil with applesauce as a healthier treat.)

Step 2

While the brownies are baking, combine the green food coloring and shredded coconut. Stir together well to get your desired shade of green. (Our boys loved helping with this, however, be cautious with the food coloring as it will satin their clothes and hands.)

Step 3

Finally, sprinkle the coconut on top of the brownies, then top with Kraft’s jumbo pumpkin marshmallows.

Let each person ‘search for the perfect pumpkin treat’ then enjoy!

Next year, we’ve decided that we will have to mix in the different sized pumpkin marshmallows.

Yield: 24 pieces
