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!
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.
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.
