Halloween Brownies (Easy Video Recipe)

Prepare these Halloween brownies with easy instructions and simple ingredients. Decorate them for your Halloween-themed party or for impressing the kids that come trick and treating.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 10 1x


Units Scale


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • chocolate pieces or candy eyeballs for decorating


  • 2 cup confectionary’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and prepare your baking pan. You can either use baking paper and some nonstick spray (as I did) or make things in a good classic way: using butter and flour. In addition, I recommend using a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk together flour and salt.
  3. Next, melt the butter and add both sugars; whisk to combine.
  4. Whisk in cocoa powder. When it comes to this step, I start mixing with a hand mixer on low power as I find it hard to wisk. However, you can do as you please.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, and whisk until well combined and glossy. Then, mix in vanilla.
  6. Finally, add the flour mixture and stir until just combined (do not overmix).
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until top is crackly (about 30 minutes). Also, a tester inserted into the center should come out clean. Let them cool for 30 minutes, then lift and cut the brownies.
  8. While brownies are cooling, beat confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, and water with a mixer on low speed until fluffy but dense, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer icing to a piping bag.
  9. Now, just decorate with spider webs and mummies. Let the kids help, they will be thrilled!
