Spooky Brownies!!!

Happy Halloween all !!! To celebrate I made these brownies for the kids. My original plan was to make them for Mr.B's school party, but he's been home all week with a cold/flu. I knew I wanted to make today special, just in case his sniffles stopped him from enjoying his Trick or Treat fun, tonight. One of the fellow group owners on Cooking for your Family, had made these last year and I could pass up the chance to try my hand at them. I used my go to Fudgy Brownie recipe and piped red hair on Frankenstein, rather than use fruit leather. They are a bit time consuming, but the cuteness factor overuled the time spent frosting the darn marshmallows, LOL. Mr.B was over the moon when he saw them this morning and is anxiously eating his breakfast, so he can sample a Franken Brownie.

I also wanted to wish everyone a safe night of Trick or Treating tonight !!!!
