Every year at Halloween we make these ghost brownies. Here are ours from last year. Very much kid done.
And this year I found this picture, which I am going to add to our repetoire. I love the Frankenstein head with fruit roll ups and mini M&Ms……he’s my new favorite. I think the original idea came from a Betty Crocker website and cookbook (that’s where I got the idea from) but this picture came from here.
Here’s how we make them.
1. Make up your favorite brownie recipe. Mine is my Grandma Lova’s brownies, but you can cheat and use a box mix if you would like.
2. Put a regular size marshmallow on top of the brownie.
3. Melt in the microwave a can of vanilla frosting for 20-30 seconds (you’ll know when it is ready because it will be very runny). I always melt it in a bowl because I can never get all the foil off the top of the frosting can and it will spark big time if you don’t (you are wondering how I know, right?).
4. Pour melty frosting over the top of the mallow (we love Sandlot around here….:) and watch it drip down. Wait for it to harden a bit and then add some eyes with black gel frosting.
5. Enjoy! They are super yummy……forgive me when you eat more than one. I am warning you in advance…they are addictive.
PS–If you are doing these for a class party….the Little Debbie brownies work great! Just cut them in half and you are good to go!
