Mummy Hazelnut Brownies
Happy October! ♥
After my Monster Brain Halloween Bark was such a HUGE hit last week, I decided to make these Mummy Hazelnut Brownies. I just can’t get enough of “cute Halloween” dessert recipes, don’t you agree?
These Mummy Hazelnut Brownies are so delicious. They start out with my favorite homemade hazelnut brownie recipe, trust me these brownies are super simple to make and taste 1000 times better than a store-bought brownie mix (you don’t even need a mixer!).
To make these brownies extra cute, I frosted each brownie square to look like a mummy using my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting and some small candy eyeballs. Seriously, these brownies taste amazing and are super fun for Halloween!
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: To make it super easy for you to cut these brownies into squares, line your 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the brownies have cooled lift the brownies out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Use a sharp knife to cut these brownies into squares before frosting.
✓ VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING: I used my favorite Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, you can find my step-by-step guide to making this frosting recipe here.
