Halloween Brookie Ingredients

You just need to pick up a few simple things for this brookie recipe. To make this simple Halloween treat recipe you will need the following:

  • brownie mix– pick up your favorite brownie mix from the store, and the ingredients to make it. You can also make a homemade brownie batter. I like to add in colored M & Ms to the batter, so I don’t use a brownie mix that already has chocolate chips included.
  • premade Halloween cookies– these usually can be found in pumpkin or ghost stamped
  • Halloween M & Ms

⭐️ Full ingredient measurements and recipe instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Instructions to Make Halloween Brookies

Let’s walk through the simple steps to make these Halloween Brookies. This recipe is so simple to make and comes together quick.

Step 1: start by mixing together the brownie recipe according to the package instructions on the mix that you purchased. Be sure not to over mix the brownie batter, this will make fluffy brownies.

Step 2: mix in about 1/4 cup of the Halloween candies into the brownie mix

Step 3: pour the brownie batter evenly into a well greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish

Step 4: place the premade cookies on the brownie batter, spacing them out so they won’t spread into each other while baking.

Step 5: bake the brookies at 350º F for 28-30 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out with just a few crumbs from the center. I usually bake the brookies according to the package directions from the brownie mix, so please refer to that as needed.

Place additional candies on top after baking if yours have dissappeared into the batter while cooking. Allow the brookies to cool completely before slicing. One trick to easily slicing brownies, is to use a plastic knife, they slide right through and won’t tear the brownies.

Can I make Halloween Brookies Ahead?

It is easy to make this brookie recipe a few days before your party. Simply keep the brookies covered with plastic wrap or in an air tight container to keep them fresh until you are ready to serve.
