Triple Layer Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

This came to me as I was thinking of what to do with the cup of pumpkin in my fridge.  How can you go wrong with mixing pumpkin, brownies, and a thick layer of chocolate frosting?

Triple Layer Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

Brownie Layer:
1/2 cup butter, very soft
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
6 Tbl cocoa
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°.  By hand, beat together butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Add flour, cocoa, and salt, mix well. Spread in 13×9 sprayed pan, set aside.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Layer:
1½ cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup water
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, by hand beat sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.  Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Gently and evenly pour pumpkin batter over brownie layer in pan.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.

Frosting:
1¼ cups sugar
6 Tbl milk
6 Tbl butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

In saucepan bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil and boil only for 1/2 minute.  Remove from heat and add chocolate chips.  Stir until chips are melted.  Add vanilla.  Mix.  Pour over cooled Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies, this is a thick layer, will set up nicely.
