Halloween Brownies

I heard "bet this had something to do with the blog"... as I saw a couple raised eyebrows studying the brownies that had color *gasp* on them. Welcome to Sunday dinner with my sons...
I wanted to see if the cream cheese filling color would hold up through baking and was pleased with the results. Now I wish I had made some of them purple too. I used Wilton Icing Colors Gel. After they're out of the oven and have cooled quite a bit you can add any candy topper you'd like, I used a chocolate drop.

I used my brownie pan, now you know I love my kitchen toys but I'll be honest and say this is one I wouldn't buy again. You need to use too much spray and it's a pain to wash by hand. Just this reporter's opinionTip: A toothbrush helps clean all of those right angles.

For the brownies just mix up one box of your favorite brand and pour it into whatever pan you're using.

Cream Cheese Filling
1 C powdered sugar
4 oz cream cheese
food coloring gel
-Mix the first two till smooth, separate into bowls and make each one the color you'd like.
-Put a teaspoon full (a real teaspoon not a measuring tsp) in the center of each brownie and bake as directed.

Notes:
  • My brownie pan makes 18 brownies, I split this filling between two bowls and used almost all of both colors on six brownies each. I left six plain knowing they'd be the ones my boys reached for:@) I think you could easily make this amount of filling work for 18 brownies.
  • They will puff up, but as the brownies cool they'll settle down.
  • This is a cream cheese filling and not cheese cake filling, there is no egg. I don't know if cheese cake filling works, but don't see why it wouldn't.
Have a happy day:@)

  36. Your boys remind me of my son, he's always saying "I know it's on the blog". :) These are so fun for Halloween!! I am envious you get to share Sunday dinner with your boys, mine is too far away.

  37. I'm surprised the colors didn't bleed through the brownies. These would be fun with a candy eyeball stuck in them after baking!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your brownies look frightfully Good! Pat

  39. How original! I wonder if they would look like 'eyes' if you'd left the cream cheese white & then added a glint of white icing to the chocolate drop? Just thinkin' out loud.
    I bet they tasted WONDERFUL!!!
