About The Recipe

Happy Friday, everyone!

It’s officially Halloween weekend and I am SO excited for this year. Mostly because we’re sharing our first-ever Halloween themed recipe on the blog! It might sound a little dorky, but my mom and I really love Halloween. We have always been the family to throw big parties with friends and family, go all out with decorations, and give extra candy to the trick-or-treaters.

Though, with our big parties, we have always made Halloween themed treats. It’s always one of our favorite things to do! But, since starting the blog, we haven’t really had the time to do these kinds of things.

So, we thought this year, we would finally make some time and have some fun!

These mummy brownies were really kind of a last-minute idea. Brownies were always a go-to for us during Halloween (oh, and pecan pie!). I mean, who doesn’t love a good brownie, you know? Adults and kids alike! They’re just irresistible.

It was just figuring out how to really make them spooky, but still cute!

We had a couple of different ideas, but the favorite amongst everyone was definitely mummy’s! My mom and I already had some candy eyes and, just to be honest, we always have white chocolate. The idea just seemed to come together really quickly and REALLY well!

Making the brownies are a breeze, then decorating is actually even easier.

All you need is to melt so white chocolate, drizzle it over the tops of the cut brownies, then decorate with some candy eyes. It goes from a delicious brownie to a spookily delicious brownie! There really is no better treat to bake for your Halloween activities this weekend.

Drizzle melted white chocolate over the top half of each brownie. Decorate each brownie with two candy eyes. Set aside to let the chocolate set.

What Type of Chocolate Should I Use?

For this recipe, we highly recommend using a high quality dark or a semi-sweet chocolate! Anywhere from 60% – 70% works wonderfully with this recipe.

How To Tell When Brownies Are Perfectly Baked

We found that, with these brownies in particular, using a cake tester or tooth pick is the best way to tell when they’re perfectly baked. After inserting the cake tester, it should still be a little damp with maybe one or two crumbs on it.

This means that the brownies are still fudge-y and moist, while being just barely baked!

How To Store

After these brownies have cooled and they’ve been decorated, you can store them a few different ways! In an airtight container or a zip top bag and left at room temperature for 1-2 days, in an airtight container or zip top bag in the fridge for 5-7 days, or store in the freezer in a freezer safe bag for up to 2 months!

Expert Tips

  • Make sure to beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla for a full 10 minutes!
  • The chocolate should not be hot when adding to the egg mixture.
  • Use a cake tester to see when the brownies are done baking.
  • If you would like to get more brownies out of this recipe, cut them into squares rather than rectangles.
  • Once the white chocolate is melted, work quickly! As it cools, it will get harder to work with.
  • If your white chocolate hardens, you can cut it out of the piping bag and place in a bowl. Then, just place it in the microwave and re-melt the chocolate.
  • Place the candy eyes onto the brownies while the chocolate is still wet! If the chocolate sets, the candy eyes will not stick.
