Frankenstein Brownies

oh I'm so in love with these how cute did they turn out!? I'm sure many of you know Frankensteins Monster is my favourite classic monster out of all of them, i have a ton of Frankenstein house decor even a huge cookie jar i have stuffed with healthy snacks lol. I made these brownies from scratch but you don't have to if you are in a hurry boxed is fine.  I loved making the different faces on each of them these would be great for the kids to do for sure! I can't believe its only 11 days till Halloween!



  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt



Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan. 

Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Add eggs; beat well with spoon. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. 
  1. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 


Vanilla Buttercream Frosting-


  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream
In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.
Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency. add green food colouring (the colour of the frosting looks more neon green in the photos its more of a lime green in person.)
Decorate each brownie with 2 candy corns for neck "bolts" and 2 candy-coated baking bits for eyes. Use decorating gel or black frosting to add pupils to eyes and draw mouth and hair.
