It’s no secret that I love to spend time in the kitchen whether I’m cooking up family style meals or baking sweet desserts for the weekends. Even more fun for me is baking for the holidays. Growing up, I can’t remember a single holiday that didn’t involve my mom and I in the kitchen whipping up cakes and cookies. It’s a tradition that has carried over into my own house to make these very same memories with my own children. And best of all … I get to share my love of baking with my friends!
This year we went beyond the classic cutout sugar cookies and had a lot of fun getting spooky with our Halloween baked goodies.
To get the baking fun started, I want to share these fun little Brownie Pumpkin and Ghost Pops that are incredibly easy to make and require baking products that can be used all year long!
Pumpkin & Ghost Brownie Pops
I think I loved this brownie pop project more than the other Halloween recipes I tried this year because it only requires ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry.
- 1 box brownie mix
- 1 tub white icing
- orange, black and green gel colors
- Wilton Brownie Pops Silicone Mold
- 8 inch cookie sticks
- Decorating Tip #2
- Disposable Decorating Bags
To get this project started, you can use 1 to 3 Wilton Brownie Pops Silicone Molds which I find are incredibly easy to use. Their flexibility makes it so easy to remove the brownies and clean up easily.
Prepare brownie mix as directed on the box and spray each mold with non-stick cooking spray. Fill each cavity about 2/3 full with brownie batter.
Bake as directed on the box, slide the sticks into the top center of each brownie and allow them to fully cool before decorating.
Divide the tub of frosting into thirds. Color 1/3 of the icing orange, 1/3 of the icing can be left white and divide the last third in half to color green and black. Simply use a small, flat spatula to frost the brownies.
Using a disposable decorating bag you can add green pumpkin stems and black for the faces of the ghosts and jack-o-lanterns.
The Pumpkin and Ghost Brownie Pops make the cutest little individual gifts for neighbors, kids and can even be individually wrapped to serve at school holiday parties.
