Spooky Cosmic Brownies

Happy Spooky Season Y’all!!  I am so excited that it is almost October.  As you know I am all about everything Pumpkin, but really I am all about anything Fall and that includes the spooky season.  To amp up our Halloween sweet table this year I decided to bring a classic but make it a little spooky.

Classic … Classic … Classic

Sometimes it is good to go back to a classic, simple recipe.  I am all for changing up a traditional recipe but there is just something so good about the classics.  These brownies are as classic as they get.  They are rich, fudgy, everything chocolate, topped with icing and sprinkles (this time spooky ones).

Honestly I forgot how much I loved these brownies until I tasted these… they are just so, so good. 

Spooky Sprinkles

I love me some sprinkles.  I have a whole shelf in my pantry dedicated to sprinkles.  My niece and nephew love them as well so I am always on the look out for fun new variations and these spooky” sprinkles are some of my favorite.  I found them on Amazon (click here for them) but I also found similar ones in Michaels last week.

Whatever sprinkles you use it will be super fun and perfect for any of your sweet tables.

Time to bring the spooky!
