baking pan with foil leaving a 2-inch overhang. Coat with non-stick cooking spray.
Brownie: In microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup butter. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add eggs and vanilla, stirring until blended.

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!).
Spread whipped topping over tops of brownies. Add sugar eyes and mini chocolate chip mouth.
Sprinkle with clear cake sparkles if you want your ghosts to sparkle!
