Ghost Brownies Recipe
With all that candy the kids get on Halloween, they’ll still need Halloween desserts. You must think I’m crazy for saying that and when my four boys were growing up I never would have.
But now that I’m a grandma of eight and can spoil my little loves, I’m all for giving them more treats! Grandmas can do that! LOL
This is my classic cocoa powder brownie recipe that easily tranforms into Halloween treat. When you make our recipe a homemade brownie comes to life when topped with whipped topping, candy eyes and a chocolate chip mouth!
I make commissions for purchases made through links in this post.
Simply turn the cutter upside down to make your “spooktacular” ghost brownies, spread whipped topping over the top and add sugar eyes and a chocolate chip for a ghostly mouth that’s screaming “Boo”!
There are actually several cutters you can choose from including one that is both an actual ghost cookie cutter and a flower too!
You will have some brownie scraps left after cutting out the ghosts and they are always good for sprinkling over ice cream, adding to a milkshake or even crumbling up and pressing onto frosting on a cake or cupcakes! The delicious possibilities are endless!
It’s time to get in the Halloween spirit and I can’t think of a better way to do that than with these hauntingly good spooky brownies that will be the hit of everyone’s Halloween celebration.

Stir in flour, 1 cup cocoa powder and salt until a batter forms.
Spread evenly in prepared baking pan and bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 15 minutes in pan. Using foil overhang transfer brownie to wire rack and cool completely.
Using a 2 ½-inch or 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out 13 ghosts. Save the brownie scraps for another use (I love crumbling them up over ice cream!).
