“My favorite scary movie was always ‘Halloween.’ I love that there’s hidden emotion underneath Michael Myers’ psychotic behavior. Plus, he has the best mask, hands-down.”
— Chris Zylka
I love Halloween! The weather around this time is pleasant, being roughly in the 70’s, the candy, the parties, and the dress up! My daughter has decided she wants to be Sofia the First and my son is going to be Luigi……again. I have opted to wear one of those headbands with cat years. Boom. Done! I took the day off from work to do all my favorite Halloween things with my kiddos. Only reason I kind of want to go to work is that they are having a Halloween pot luck. I love cooking for pot lucks! I made these because I felt like I was going to be left out of making something for the pot luck this time so, I just decided to make brownies for home! Matt and I finished off the pan of brownies in ya’know a few…days errr hours. While watching Master Chef Junior. It is what it is. They were good.
What you will need:
Your Favorite Brownies (I used These)
Mini Oreo Cookies
Buttercream Frosting (Your favorite vanilla recipe)
For the brownies you can use whatever your favorite recipe is. You can try a few of these.
Then for the mummy you need a Ribbon tip much like this one from Bake It Pretty.
Basic idea here is gently cover the brownies with “ribbons” of buttercream, once one layer is covering the entire brownie gently take Mini Oreo cookies for the eyes and place the eyes as desired, I did mine towards the top for the brownie. Using a toothpick make small eyes and continue to make ribbons until you cannot see through to the dark brownie. Allow the buttercream to harden for about an hour or until stiff enough that the buttercream holds shape.
Serve with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
