Peanut Butter stuffed brownies are celebrating Halloween with Monster Mash makeover! These Frosted Halloween Monster Mash Brownies have the perfect Halloween sprinkles on top of the easy homemade frosting and creepy gummy eyeballs.
This post/recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
So we’ve talked about this before but let me just say it again, I love Halloween and I love cute, fun Halloween treats.
I’m not into crazy gross Halloween foods. We don’t need gross-looking foods around here.
I’d rather have cute Halloween desserts like these Frosted Halloween Monster Mash Brownies!
Although I did add some little gummy eyeballs to these Halloween brownies, I wouldn’t say that these little eyes are gross. They’re also kind of awesome match the cute Halloween sprinkles.
Since this recipe is part of #HalloweenTreatsWeek, Sweets and Treats Shop sent me some of her fun Halloween sprinkles and I knew I wanted to use them in this recipe. Plus, they’re my favorite Halloween colors. The mix I used for this dessert is the Sweet Sprinkles Mix: Monster Mash sprinkle mix.
Yes, Orange and Black are Halloween colors, but my favorite Halloween colors are Purple, Green, and Orange. I even used purple and green as the colors for my Halloween blog, “The Southern Halloween Queen”
I decorated a few of them with just sprinkles but I also added a few of the gummy eyeballs that TreatStreet USA sent me to a few of the brownies.
So, today is the last day of #HalloweenTreatsWeek. The giveaway at the bottom of the post will end tonight at midnight so make sure that you enter before time is up!
