Spooky Chocolate Bark Brownies #Halloween



Okay confession time.

I am a huge giant scaredy cat.  These spooky brownies are pretty much as spooky as I get at any given time.

As much as I love pumpkin spice. and cutesy Halloween stuff, and dressing up, I pretty much loathe the rest of the season.

I tend to avoid the TV unless It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is on or hubs is able to fast forward through commercials.  I mean, I fast forward commercials anytime, but this time of year?  The commercials for horror movie give me nightmares.  Ugh! More power to you if you love horror flicks, but I just can’t.  Yikes.

Anyhow onward to some cutesy spooky brownies.

Okay wait, second confession.  I still haven’t found a homemade brownie recipe I like as well as the boxed mixes.  Seriously, they’re either too dry or not chocolately enough.  So if you have a homemade version that rivals the boxed stuff, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!


Anyway, these brownies are all about the toppings, because more chocolate always makes everything better.  The end.

And also they’re kinda cute.  And not scary at all.  Unless you’re Spud who looked at the eyeballs and the red candy melts and thought that there were dead things on the brownies.  Then it just gets weird. Imma stick with cutesy, ok?

Want more Halloween inpiration?  Look no further!



Spooky Chocolate Bark Brownies
Adapted from How Sweet Eats

1 box brownie mix, prepared (or your favorite homemade brownies)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
¼ cup yellow candy melts
¼ cup red candy melts
2 tablespoons harvest colored M&Ms
2 tablespoons candy eyeballs
Halloween sprinkles


Bake brownies in an 8x8 square pan according to recipe instructions.

Once the brownies are done, immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips and place back in the oven for 1-2 minutes or until the chocolate chips are melted.

Quickly smooth out the chocolate with a knife or offset spatula to frost the brownies.  Randomly sprinkle the red and yellow candy melts around.  Return to oven for another 1-2 minutes or until the candy melts are melted.  Use the tip of a knife or spatula to swirl the colored candy melts.

Immediately sprinkle the M&Ms, candy eyes, and sprinkles over the melted chocolate.

Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting.

  5. I love these! I have never thought to create an icing layer by melting the chips on top in the oven! What a great timesaver and good base to add more treats. I'm the exact opposite of you for Halloween... The scarier the better. But you can have my share of pumpkin spice...It's the part of the season I'm a little meh on :)
