Spooky Spiderweb Brownies: Easy Halloween Treat
Halloween is going to be here before we know it. I love making festive treats for the holiday, and so I created these adorably spooky Spiderweb Brownies. SO fun & easy!
They’re SO adorable and easy to make, which is really my favorite way to do things. If you’re looking for a super cute treat that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes, look no farther!
Spooky (and EASY!) Spiderweb Brownies
All you need is a boxed brownie mix for a 9×13 pan, white frosting—and a toothpick. Really, that’s it! If you want to do a homemade brownie recipe, you totally can–either way will work. I also used Wilton frosting in a bag that I picked up at the grocery store, because then I don’t have to mess with a piping bag, and it saves a ton of time. But you can definitely use homemade frosting as well.
Once you’ve baked your brownies, let them cool completely, then cut into squares. I find it easiest when I line my baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and let it hang over the edges. Then I can easily lift all the brownies out, trim the edges (which my kids eagerly scarf down), then cut into equal and even-sized pieces.
Pipe a circle spiral on the top of each brownie, starting in the middle.
Then take your toothpick and make lines through the frosting–from side to the other–kind of like you’re cutting a pizza.
That gives you the fun spiderweb pattern in literally minutes. LOVE!!!
These are perfect for taking to a party, serving to your own guests and family, or a classroom party. They would also be so fun to use to go “booing”…and to say “You’ve Been Boo’ed!”
I also love this idea, because it’s so easy to make gluten-free. I have a daughter with celiac disease, and so I’m always on the hunt for fun recipes and holiday ideas that are easily adaptable. I just used two boxes of our favorite gluten-free brownie mix (affiliate link) and put them in a 9×13 pan.
Whether you’re short on time, or just looking for a super cute Halloween treat, these darling Spiderweb Brownies are the perfect choice!
