These Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Bars are a gooey, decadent treat! The bars are fudgy and brownie-like, and in the center is a thick layer of soft caramel that melts in your mouth. They are easy to put together and a huge crowd-pleaser!

Last week Eric and I listened to this book on the long drive out to our campsite. It’s called As You Wish and it’s written by Wesley from The Princess Bride. (Pretty sure that’s not his real name but he will always be Wesley to me.) Some facts:

Of course we had to watch it all over again when we got home from camping. It reminded me of the time Eric and I showed it to our friend Huy, who’s from Vietnam. He did NOT think it was funny and was totally bored. Maybe it’s American humor?? (No more rhymes now, I mean it!/Anybody want a peanut?)

I will leave you with this gem:

Now about these Fudgy Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Bars! These are sooooo good. Imagine a bar with brownie texture, but instead of chocolate it’s full of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors. Then smashed inside is a ridiculously thick layer of caramel that melts in your mouth. The top gets all crackly, the edges have this amazing caramel-y crisp thing going on, and the center is just ridiculously oozy. They stay soft for days because of the caramel.

This recipe was inspired by these Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Bars, which have been a favorite of mine for years. I love the pumpkin version! The way to add pumpkin (but keep them from getting cakey) is by removing the eggs entirely from the recipe. The canned pumpkin does the job of the eggs. So this is a perfect dessert if you need to make something egg-free for a friend! The only hazard is that you will have RECKLESS ABANDON tasting the batter, because it’s egg-free and you don’t even have to feel guilty snatching some of it.
