This year, trick out your treats by serving up a platter of these spooky brownies. In this recipe, intense unsweetened cocoa powder and caramel-y brown sugar give them a sophisticated flavor profile, while the playful decorations keep you right on theme.
You can find candy eyeballs at most supermarkets and craft stores, or online at Target or Amazon; we prefer the Wilton brand.

Brownies are good, chocolate-y and moist. I beat my frosting on high for at least 10 minutes to get it stiffer and glossier like a meringue. If you prepare it as the recipe suggests the frosting is too runny and tinted yellow. I also added vanilla to mine for better flavor.

These brownies aren’t very chocolatey, so they’re not very good. Also the icing recipe isn’t what they used for the picture. The meringue powder makes the icing “melt” together more, so when you see the mummies in the picture with the icing layered, you can’t do it with the recipe. All the layers combine so you might as well have just iced them with a knife. Don’t make either of these recipes. Cute idea though, and the spiderwebs work with the icing.
Easy recipe, I made them and they were the perfect brownie consistency. I would suggest adding a quarter cup more of sugar, it seemed a little unsweet to me.
These brownies were easy to make and delicious. Everyone enjoyed them. I plan on making for birthdays and holidays.
