Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Brownies: You will need two boxes of brownie mix plus the ingredients that the instructions call for on the boxes.
Peanut Butter: You will use creamy for this recipe, but if you prefer an extra crunch, you can use crunchy peanut butter.
Sugar: You will need a combination of sugars for this recipe. You will need light brown sugar and white sugar for the cookie dough and powdered sugar for the frosting.
Flour: You will need all-purpose flour for this recipe along with baking soda to allow the recipe to rise in the oven.
Add-ins: For extra flavor, and texture, and to decorate this amazing recipe, you will be adding in quick oats, mini chocolate chips, Halloween sprinkles, and mini candy eyes.
Food Coloring Gel: You will need neon green food coloring gel to color the frosting a bright and vibrant color. The gel food coloring will work best compared to liquid coloring.
How To Make Halloween Brookies
Step 1. Set the oven to 350 degrees and use non-stick baking spray to grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Use parchment paper to line the base of the pan with extra on each of the 4 sides. Prepare the ingredients for the brownies and bake according to the instructions on the box. Add the prepared batter to the baking pan. Place it aside.
Step 2. Begin making the cookie dough. In a mixing bowl, add the peanut butter and softened butter and combine using an electric mixer with a paddle attachment. Put in the brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla, and beat to combine until fully incorporated. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt into another bowl and combine using a whisk. Put in the oats and chocolate chips and beat to combine again until fully incorporated. Drop the oatmeal mixture into the batter in the pan using a serving spoon before topping with Halloween sprinkles. Place into the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Use a toothpick to check for doneness. When the time is up, place the pan on the counter and allow it to cool for 30 minutes before removing it from the pan.
Step 3. Add the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream into a standing mixer and combine using a paddle attachment until combined, creamy, and stiff. Put in a few drops of the neon food coloring and combine until you have reached the desired green color. Add the frosting into a piping bag and begin piping large and little dollops of frosting onto the brownies. Top the frosting with 2 mini candy eyes and allow it to set and firm up before serving. Enjoy!
Can I Make these Halloween Brownies in Advance?
Absolutely! These brownies actually taste better when they’ve had a chance to sit for a day or two. This gives the flavors time to meld together and the brownies will be super moist. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container so they don’t dry out.
If you want to make them even further in advance, you can freeze them. Wrap each brownie individually in plastic wrap, then place them all in a freezer-safe container or bag. They’ll last for up to 3 months in the freezer. When you’re ready to enjoy them, just thaw them overnight on the counter or pop them in the microwave for a quick defrost.
