Welcome to Halloween Week!We have some treats in store for you so stay tuned! Every day we will feature another Halloween themed recipe for you to enjoy.
These "Boo Boo Brownies" were super fun to make, and a wonderful project to do with children. I wanted to enlist my four-year-old granddaughter to help, but she's come down with the sniffles unfortunately.
You can go all domestic goddess and make your own brownies for these, but I cheated and used a mix (and a store brand one at that.)
I plan to get all this temptation out of the house by bringing these to work and the people there will eat three-day-old doughnuts and leftover pizza that has to be pried out of the box so I don't think they'll notice the difference.
1 box brownie mix (plus whatever your mix calls for)
1 container of rich and creamy vanilla frosting
1 bag marshmallows
1 tube of black decorating gel
Make brownies according to package directions and let cool thoroughly. Cut brownies into desired squares.
Heat frosting in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds, stirring after every ten seconds until thin enough to drizzle.
Top each brownie with a marshmallow. Drizzle with approximately one tablespoon of frosting--enough to "glue" marshmallow to brownie and nearly cover marshmallow. Let frosting set approximately half an hour.
Create eyes, nose and mouth with black decorating gel. Boo!
I don't have a Halloween themed book but I do have a Valentine's Day one:
Available at B&N and Amazon
