I have one word for this grilled cheese sandwich, WOW! Yes, all of the letters need to be capitalized. This Pumpkin, Chocolate, and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich is out of this world. I can’t even begin to tell you how decadent and divine it is. When I dreamt up the combination in my head I had a feeling it would be good, but good is a major understatement. I took one bite and I almost fainted it was so good. This grilled cheese sandwich is heavenly!

I am blaming this sandwich on Trader Joe’s. We stopped at Trader Joe’s for a few items-coconut oil, dried mangoes, and sweet potato tortilla chips. I picked up my staples and headed to the checkout line. In the corner of my eye I spotted a display of pumpkin butter. I wandered over to the stack of jars and added a jar to my basket. I needed it!

I could easily eat pumpkin butter straight from the jar, but I wanted to create something fabulous with it. When the idea for a grilled cheese popped in my head, I ran with it. The pumpkin butter is sweet so I decided to create a dessert grilled cheese. I am always in the mood for dessert!

The triple threat combination is pumpkin butter, chocolate, and brie. These three ingredients were born to be together. Trust me on this one. I LOVE pumpkin and chocolate together and adding brie is always a good idea.

Look at all of that decadence! I may have gotten a little carried away with the chocolate, but I am not sorry. I don’t care that I had chocolate all over my hands and face. This sandwich was soooo worth the mess! I am telling you, it is insanely good!

I used dark chocolate, but feel free to use your favorite chocolate. And if you don’t have Trader Joe’s, no worries, you can use another brand of pumpkin butter. Several stores carry pumpkin butter during the fall months. Or you can make your own pumpkin butter. I love this easy pumpkin butter recipe from Skinnytaste. So there are no excuses! You HAVE to make this Pumpkin, Chocolate, and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich. And make sure you have someone close by when you take your first bite. You might faint because this sandwich is SO good!

  1. I will second your WOW – my mouth literally dropped when I saw this. Brie is my favourite cheese ever, and chocolate is… well, obviously amazing 😀 I’ve nebver tried pumpkin butter (we don’t have it here in the UK!) but it sounds like a great addition. You’ve seriously got me drooling over here!!!

  2. I love the looks of this Maria! I love TJs pumpkin butter (and brie and chocolate!)

    I put a PB + brie grilled cheese in my cookbook but no chocolate. You are so smart!! I can only bet this is straight up amazing. Look at these pics – some of my faves ever of yours. Pinned!

  3. After seeing Dawn’s pumpkin butter chocolate chip cookies…I had to buy pumpkin butter! Its so darn good. This sandwich looks ridiculous amazing

  4. OMG! I adore anything pumpkin add chocolate and cheese…yikes can it get any better?!?! I am going to make my own pumpkin butter so thanks for the link. I love your blog and look forward to my daily emails!!!! Thanks for letting us in your kitchen! Now if only samples came with those emails…giggle!

  5. Ooh! Good heavens! My initial reaction was skepticism, but the more I think about it and look at your lovely pictures, I’m convinced. I was thinking about making baked brie wrapped in some kind of rich yeast dough for my Christmas party this year, and now I think I may do it with thick layers of pumpkin butter and chocolate on top and bottom!

  6. THIS is a sandwich! I’ve never done the chocolate-cheese combo but I definitely will now. Thanks so much for sharing such a delicious looking recipe!

  7. OMG! This was the best grilled cheese I ever ate! I had to modify it to the ingredients I had on hand. I used homemade pumpkin bread, plain pureed pumpkin, olive oil spray because I did not have butter, I added coconut butter and used Theo salted almond dark chocolate. The brie was excellent, so soft and gooey. Thank you both big time for posting this extraordinarily yummy sandwich!
