  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 13-inch x 9-inch 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.
  • 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!).
  • 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!


Recipe will make about 13 ghosts using the 3-inch tulip cookie cutter. You may get 14 ghosts if you use the 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter.
