Spooky Recipes for Halloween Brownies, Blondies, and Bars
Whether you're team blondie or team brownie, these Halloween recipes will give you a good dose of sweetness on the scariest day of the year. Bar cookies are a crowd-ready treat that are easy to slice and serve; leave a tray out at your Halloween party or send your child to school with brownies to share with their classmates.
Sure, brownies are delicious 365 days a year, but we love any excuse to dress them up for the holidays. For All Hallows Eve, we turned up the fear factor and decorated our classic halloween brownies using royal icing to create the illusion of mummies and cobwebs. Take a bite if you dare! Just as scary? Our almond brownies. Use our template to craft creepy coffins from a batch of these decadent treats, then decorate with more icing for a real-life effect. Your guests will leave you saying RIP to the entire tray before you know it.
If you have an abundance of leftover Halloween candy, sprinkle them on top of our blondies and brownies for an extra sweet bite. They add a festive color that's so right for the season.
Most of these recipes, like our chocolate-candy icebox bars, can be made in advance. A few of these bar cookies, like the scaredy-cat brownies, are best made as close to serving. No tricks needed, either. They're so easy you can even let the kids do the decorating. This saves you time and makes a fun, easy activity for party-goers. Set up an assembly line with a variety of toppings and let the all the visiting ghosts and superheroes have at it.
Our recipes for Halloween brownies, blondies, and bars are sure to be a hit this October—and beyond.
