Jack-O-Lantern Brownies

Is it me, or does it seem like there is a resurgence of fun and yummy treats now that Halloween is quickly approaching?

With such wonderful inspiration out there, I decided to try a Halloween spin on brownies.  Jack-O-Lantern Brownies to be exact.

I only needed 4 things:
  1. 1 box of brownie mix (Let's keep it real, people. Betty Crocker or Pillsbury can make just as good of a brownie as I could attempt to from scratch. But if you would prefer to make brownies from scratch, more power to you!)
  2. 13x9 baking dish/pan
  3. Pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter
  4. Reese's Mini Pieces baking candies

    After following the mixing and baking instructions on the brownie box, I let the brownies cool and then placed them in the fridge for at least an hour.  Once the brownies were firm, I used my cookie cutter, which was coated on both sides in Pam spray, to stamp out pumpkin shape brownies.  For the finishing touch, I added the Reese's Mini Pieces as the eyes, nose and mouth on each Jack-o-Lantern. 

    This is a fun and easy way to "Halloween-up" your brownies.  You could even make these for Thanksgiving, just forgo the jack-o-lantern face and maybe used the candies to make the horizontal line/seam details of the pumpkin.
