Spooky Eyeball Brownies Halloween Treat
Halloween is just around the corner and I couldn’t help but test out a spooky treat idea to make for my kids and their friends. My kids are kind of obsessed with Halloween this year. They’ve been watching the Nightmare Before Christmas movie a couple times a week since summer ended, have planned out all their costumes, and play Halloween music in the car on the way to school. Before I get started with diy costumes (and hopefully a couple store bought for my sanity) I’m sharing this delicious Halloween treat that is super simple and fun so you can plan ahead too!
I’ve added links to more Halloween themed activities for kids at the end of this post. Be sure to scroll past the recipe and hop over to those sites too!
- 1 Box fudge brownie mix
- White Frosting
- Red Icing
Directions For Making Eyeball Brownie Halloween Treats
Combine the brownie mix ingredients as directed on the box.
Grease a mini-muffin tin so the brownies don’t stick after they’re baked.
Fill each mini-muffin cup 3/4 of the way full of brownie mix.
Bake as directed on the box. I usually check them a bit early because the muffin cups are so small.
Let the brownies cool and then remove theme from the pan. If they’re sticking to the pan loosen the edges with a spoon and then scoop them out.
Use a spoon to drop frosting on the top of each brownie. Smooth into a circular shape with a butter knife. Don’t cover the entire brownie with frosting. See my images for examples.
Add large dots of red with the red icing to the center of each circle of frosting.
Using a toothpick or the edge of a fork pull the red icing toward the outer part of the circles in zig-zag patterns.
Use a small ball of cooked brownie as the pupil for each eye by placing it in the center of the red dot.
