Behind the Batter

Part 3: DIY Disappearing Desserts!

We are in LOVE with these Jack-O-Lantern Brownies, and hope you are, too. No carving necessary (it's always nice when you can avoid large carving knives and kids), just a few ingredients and you're on way to more Halloween DIY fun with the family. My plan this year is to have a small group of kids over for a pre trick-or-treating Halloween party so they can decorate their little hearts out!  

What you will need:

  • Large Marshmallows  
  • Vermont Brownies - your favorite flavors (1 Brownie yields 4 Ghosts)
  • Creamy Vanilla or Orange Colored Frosting (store bought or homemade)
  • Black Gel to make eyes and mouth
  • Chocolate Chips

Instructions: 

  • Cut Brownies into 4 square pieces
  • Place Brownies on cookie sheet, parchment paper, or serving dish. 
  • Melt frosting in double boiler or microwave
  • Once frosting is melted, dip bottom of marshmallow into frosting and place on Brownie (this helps the marshmallow stay upright)
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of melted frosting over each marshmallow to coat 
  • Let stand until frosting is set, about 15 minutes
  • Use black gel to make eyes and mouths
  • Top off with a chocolate chip "hat"

Happy Halloween to all!!!
