Spooktacular Brownies – Halloween Desserts

What a great recipe and so easy to make.. perfect for Halloween 🙂 This was a hit with all of my friends and their kids. It really does take time to make. I made the brownies the night before. The next morning I finished the ghosts. On half of them I didn’t wait until the frosting had completely dried and cooled and the eyes blurred a little bit.

Spooktacular fun and scrumptious eating are coming your way! Gather your goblins to share lots of baking tricks and treats 😀



Spooktacular Brownies – Halloween Desserts
