Ghostly Brownies and Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

To celebrate I made a Pinterest Halloween classic: fudgey brownies topped with ghost and pumpkin Peeps.

As you can see, the ghosts’  eyes melted under the heat of the broiler so I tried to add some back with melted chocolate. DSC_0122

DSC_0245From my extensive online research I’ve learned that you can pop some miniature chocolate chips on the eyes and mouth for an easier eyes and mouth-next time.

Also some Peeps trivia for you: Do you know how many Peeps are made everyday in their  Bethlehem, Pennsylvania factory? 4.2 Million. That’s a lot of Peeps.

My plan for tonight is to hand out candy and watch the Bengals game.  I hope you have a fun Halloween!

What to buy:

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

What to do:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan
  • stir together the cocoa and baking soda, add 1/3 cup vegetable oil and coffee and mix until well blended
  • stir in sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup oil
  • add the flour, vanilla and salt; mix just until all of the flour is absorbed
  • spread into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
  • top with Halloween peeps for the last 2-3 minutes of baking
  • allow to cool before cutting into squares
