Not So Spooky Halloween Brownies

by Alli

I’m all about a Not So Spooky Halloween! These Not So Spooky Halloween Brownies are adorable and so easy to make.

If you’re in a hurry, just buy premade brownies and decorate them according to the instructions in the recipe card down below. I’ll never tell! 

Halloween Fun

When I was a little girl, I always looked forward to that one chilly night in the fall when my siblings and I took to the streets in our small hometown.

We would dress up in our plastic costumes with those horrible masks. We could barely breathe or see through those tiny eye holes.

Our plan was to gather as much candy as our paper bags or plastic pumpkins would hold. There were no tricks, just treats!

Since those days, Halloween has come a long way, baby. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans plan to spend $6.9 billion this year for Halloween! Yikes!

No Spooky Scary Stuff Allowed!

At my house, we’re not into spooky, scary stuff at all. Fall is all about family, fun, and food.

The older boys always want to dress as the latest and greatest superhero or ninja warrior. They are 100% boys!

The youngest grandson, T Hawke, had the hardest time deciding between Mickey Mouse or Jake. After going back and forth, he finally settled on Jake and I’ve been singing Jake and the Neverland Pirates and ME all day long.

We usually have a fun, fall festival event at our church with trunk or treat bouncy houses, and, did I mention, food?

Fun Halloween Brownies

If you’re hosting a Halloween party, you’ve got to try these not-so-spooky Halloween brownies. They are super easy to make and are always a hit at my house.

Ingredients For Not So Spooky Halloween Brownies

  • 18 Brownie Squares (buy premade brownies or use a boxed brownie mix to make brownies)
  • 1 can of vanilla (white) icing
  • Small tube of black piping gel (for decorating cakes)
  • 18 regular-sized Marshmallows

I use a boxed mix that makes 18 brownies. Of course, you can make lots of Halloween brownies or just a few. It’s totally up to you. 

Plop a marshmallow on top of each brownie. Pour melted white icing over each marshmallow. Use the black piping gel to make eyes and a mouth. You’re done! 

These treats are fun for the kids to make as well.

Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 18 Brownie Squares (buy premade brownies or use a boxed brownie mix to make brownies)
  • 1 can of white icing
  • Small tube of black piping gel (for decorating cakes)
  • 18 Marshmallows


  1. Cut brownies into squares. Place a few heaping tablespoons of icing into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 10 seconds and stir.
  2. Place a marshmallow on each brownie square and spoon a tablespoon of icing over the marshmallow. Use the black gel to make eyes and a mouth.


The melted icing poured over the marshmallows will help keep the marshmallow "ghosts" in place.

I use a brownie mix that makes 18 brownies. Feel free to make as many or as few Halloween brownies as you need.
