Halloween Spider’s Eggs Brownies

Roaming Rosie Halloween Spiders Eggs Brownies

This is the type of Halloween dessert I love – satisfyingly spooky but quick to put together. Because let’s face it, I make a lot of Halloween-themed meals all month long, and I can’t spend hours and hours on each one!

These Spider’s Eggs Brownies were constructed with an easy shopping list and can be made ahead of time. In this case, I brought these brownies to a potluck. They’re really easy to travel with (don’t forget something to cut them!) but you could always make them in a more permanent pan just as easily.

Here’s the shopping list:

1 box brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 tube white cookie icing
1/4 cup sugar pearls
1 package Halloween toy spider rings
1 disposable foil cake pan (optional)

(These items should be readily available in your local grocery/big box/dollar store around Halloween, but if they’re not, try the links posted above.)

As you can see from the photos above, I wanted to fill these brownies full of delicious spider eggs! Mixing in those white chocolate chips really helps to highlight this.

Instructions:

  1. Make the brownies according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Mix the white chocolate chips into the batter.
  3. Pour batter into pan of choice and bake according to instructions on the box.
  4. Allow cooked brownies to cool completely.
  5. Draw a spider web on top of cooled brownies with cookie icing.
  6. Before icing dries, sprinkle sugar pearls over the icing so they stick.
  7. Add in a few spider rings by pressing them into the top.
  8. Freak out your friends and coworkers!

I’ve found brownies to be a pretty safe bet for satisfying the greatest amount of people at a party. I do have a tried-and-true homemade brownie recipe, but if I’m in a rush, I mix a few chocolate chips into a box mix.

And, if it’s Halloween, I spookify it.
