These Boo Halloween Brownies are the cutest. Made with white chocolate marshmallows on top of a delicious brownie….kids love making them as much as they love eating them.
Boo Halloween Brownies
Aren’t these so adorable? I just love fall and Halloween time.
These Boo Halloween Brownies are so fun and so easy! I plan to make several batches for my daughter’s school Halloween party, but they would be perfect for a party at home too! Or gather up all the neighbor kids and let them make some.
Use an extra large mixing bowl so that kids help (helps them keep everything in the bowl) and great for making a double batch of brownies…a double batch will give you a large brownie base of for the treats.
There is nothing easier to make from scratch than homemade brownies. They are so forgiving and trust me…they are 1000 times better than any store bought or mix. I can’t tell you the last time I used a boxed brownie mix! They really don’t much more time than a boxed mix.
Of course, feel free to do what you need to do to get these Boo Halloween Brownies done for all your Halloween parties!
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE HALLOWEEN TREATS
Homemade Halloween cookies are so much fun to make because they can be creepy and not perfect.
Aren’t the little brownies so cute? My son loved holding the finished cookies up to his own eyes, so don’t be surprised if you see these sweet treats staring back at you! In addition to these Spider Web cookies, here are the cookies in this picture:
- 1 box brownie mix (for a 13x9 pan)** or use your favorite scratch brownie recipe
- 16-20 large marshmallows
- 1 bag white chocolate chips
- 2-4 tablespoons shortening
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 16-20 toothpicks
Prepare brownies as directed on box or in your recipe. Bake and let cool completely (at least 1-2 hours). Cut into 16-20 brownies and gently remove from pan and place on a large cooling rack.
Place one marshmallow on top of each brownie. Put a toothpick through the marshmallow and into the brownie to hold it in place.***
Melt white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl with 2 tablespoons shortening for 30-45 seconds. Stir. Continue in 15 second intervals until the chips are melted and smooth. If the white chocolate is still too thick to drizzle nicely, then just add more shortening by the teaspoon. Using a spoon, carefully drizzle the melted white chocolate on the top of the marshmallow. With a circular motion, gently push it over the sides of the marshmallows. Start with a little amount of melted white chocolate and add more as needed. Let ghosts harden. Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to speed up the process.
Melt chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon of shortening using the same method as above. To add faces: use a toothpick dipped in chocolate, or place chocolate in a zip-top bag (or piping bag) with a small hole cut, or use a number 2 frosting tip in the bag.
** One recipe/box of brownies will work just fine, but a double batch is even better so consider making a double batch and pouring it all into the same pan. Cooking time will increase slightly with a double bath.
***Take caution when eating and remove the toothpick. Make sure guests know that there are toothpicks or if sending to school for kids skip the toothpicks and just be careful when assembling.
