    Halloween Brownies

    As we know, when it comes to Halloween themed desserts, I like cute and colorful more than anything else. And when it comes to desserts in general, easy is my preference.

    I combined those two things to make these fun Halloween Brownies, made with….brownie mix. Yes. That’s right. I used a box brownie recipe to make these Halloween Brownies!

    People are flabbergasted when they find out that I don’t always make everything from scratch.

    Truth be told, I have a stash of brownie and cake mixes in my garage. They’re something I always stock up on during any 10 for $10 sales at the supermarket.

    Brownies from a Box

    Just because you make something from a box doesn’t mean that you can’t put your own spin on it to make it unique. My Halloween Brownies used a box of brownie mix with leftover cookie icing and sprinkles from my Halloween Chocolate Sugar Cookies.

    And a couple secret ingredients so they taste AH-mazing!

    Together, they made a beautiful dessert platter than gave variation for those who prefer one over the other and both were baked and done during just one nap time, which is how I measure all of my time these days, in naps.

    Fun brownie box mix hacks:

    These brownies use my super strong homemade vanilla extract with instant espresso powder and mini chocolate chips to elevate them.

    Espresso powder might seem like an odd ingredient, but it is actually one of the best ways to take anything chocolate and amplify the flavor. If you are concerned with caffeine, use a caffeine free espresso powder. Or omit it, it won’t make or break the recipe.

    Mini chocolate chips melt and make little gooey pockets of amazingness. Full size are another option, but minis tend to spread out more evenly.

    • Add 2 teaspoons flavored extract.
    • Add 1 cup chopped nuts.
    • Add 1 cup chocolate, butterscotch or toffee chips.
    • Top with fudge or easy caramel sauce.
    • Sprinkle with fleur de sel, making them sweet and salty!

    I have to admit that because they’re so easy, these brownies have become one of my favorite Halloween desserts this year. Even better, because they’re so festive and delicious, everyone thinks I made them from scratch.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Prepare brownie batter according to box directions, but add vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder dissolved in the wet ingredients. To do this, I generally just add it straight to the water before adding to the batter. Fold in mini chocolate chips.
    • Bake according to package directions.
    • When brownies are cooled, drizzle with slightly warm cookie icing.
    • While tacky, sprinkle with favorite sprinkles and allow to set before cutting.
    • If you've tried this recipe, let us know how it was!
