Fudgy, frosting covered Halloween brownies with monster eyes like these Monster Brownies are delicious & so much fun. Great Halloween treats for all ages.
Who loves a good brownie? Our family LOOOOVEEES brownies so much. Give them a little frosting & we are really in business. But then you add a super cute Halloween component like electric purple frosting, fun green jimmies & ooogly, googly monster eyeballs & we have a Halloween treat hit for sure. Those candy eyes are so much fun. I started with them last Halloween & I have been finding so many different ways to use them in all our Halloween desserts. These particular brownies are definitely a favorite for all our Halloween party festivities & we will be sure to save an extra batch for the day after when the 5 of us are already tired of the standard candy leftover from the night before.
These are so simple to make – I whip them up & then prepare the frosting while they bake. Then I just let it chill slightly in the fridge while the brownies cool. Then it’s just spread, sprinkle & cut. So easy & I always let the kids help me with the eye placement. They love to do that – no matter the age.
