Mummy Brownies

My guys are pretty die-hard boxed brownie mix fans, but every once in a while, I see a recipe that I know they will love.  I found these fun Mummy Brownies in a Taste of Home Halloween round up, and I knew they'd be a big hit here.

They're both allergic to tree nuts, so I left those out.  I used a 13x9 pan and they baked in just over 35 minutes.  I don't have a particular knack for piping, but that's the great thing about mummies, they're not meant to be neat and tidy. I used some great candy eyeballs I found in the cake decorating section, but you can use mini M&Ms too.

The trick was almost on me, these treats were disappearing so fast I had to hide them so I could get a few pictures!  Be sure to go and check out what Halloween ideas the other #FestiveFoodies are sharing today using the links down below.  Thank you so much to Ellen from Family Around the Table for hosting!

Mummy Brownies
1/2 cup butter, cubed
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
4 Nellie's Free Range Eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped pecans, optional (Omitted)
2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
Candy eyes

Preheat oven to 350°. Line two 8-in. square baking pans with foil, letting ends extend up sides; grease foil. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Stir in vanilla and chocolate mixture. In another bowl, mix flour and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture, mixing well. If desired, stir in pecans.

Spread into prepared pans. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

Lifting with foil, remove brownies from pans. Cut into bars. Using a No. 46 pastry tip, pipe frosting over brownies. Decorate with candy eyes.
