Scaredy Cat Halloween Brownie Idea

revamping another Halloween Dessert post for the early days.  We just remade these Scaredy Cat Halloween Brownie idea for dessert this week.

Back in 2011, we found this idea from Everday Food Magazine. I usually flip straight to the last pages where they have the treat of the month.

The October issue had Scaredy Cat Brownies. Remember when you could bring in homebaked treats to school?   Well in 2011, my daughter’s 10th birthday treat was in question.

I was not sure my 10 year old would agree to have these brownies brownie desserts as a class treat but why not ask.  She mentioned she wanted brownies but how can I just send plain ones when these looked so cute. She agreed so that also meant I did not have to wait to try them out.


Let’s see how these Scaredy Cat Halloween Brownie are made.

To make more than the 16 suggested in the recipe so instead of making the brownies from scratch I used a “Box Mix” family style that is cooked in 9×9.

I adapted this recipe slightly as I was not sure about how the kids would take to the mint flavor if I added it to the brownie batter. 

 Instead of adding peppermint patties to the batter,  I added about 3/4 cup of M&M’s. You can add chocolate chips too.

 How to assemble the Brownie Halloween Recipes

Bake the brownies per the recipe you are using.  Allow them to cool slightly.

Add the Peppermint Patties in rows on top of the brownies and they will melt onto the top.

Add the chocolate chip ears to the sides of each patty.

Once you notice the tops of the patties starting to melt slightly you can add the candy eyes.

Once the patties are cooler, you can add the mouth and fags with the cookie icing.
