Everybody loves S’mores.
Why limit them just to summer campfires?
Try our Halloween brownie version……..staring Ghost Peeps. The only candy with a cult following.
For the Graham Cracker crust start with:
- 1 Cup Crushed Graham Crackers
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 4 TBS Melted Butter
Mix everything together and smash into the bottom of a 9X9 greased baking dish.
Pop it into a 375 degree oven for about 4 minutes to “crisp it up”.
Then mix a box of chocolate brownie mix according to the package directions and bake it on top of the graham cracker crust. (HINT: Instead of oil…use melted butter. You’ll thank me)
Chill in the fridge overnight, then remove the single large brownie from the pan and spread a layer of chocolate icing across the top.
Not too much. Just enough to hold the ghost Peeps in place.
Ohhh yeah, the Peeps.
Use a sharp, wet knife to slice the ghosts apart…..and line the little guys across the frosted brownies. Pressing in gently.
15 ghosts will line-up across a 9X9 brownie just perfectly.
Now the fun part.
PLAYING WITH FIRE!!!!!!!
I’ve had this hand-held kitchen torch for years. Not something I use that often.
I set it on the lowest flame setting a pass it around the edges of the marshmallow Peeps. Charing them just a little.
It works best if the brownies are cut apart.
Also……. avoid the ghost faces. The heat melts their tiny little eyes.
Peeps never tasted so good…
You’ll want a glass of milk with these..
And, as always, you’re welcome.
These sound delicious and decadent.
I ate the whole pan (looks down at his feet in shame)…..
Oh my goodness, can it get any better? (Maybe with a touch of peanut butter…). Makes my mouth water. Yuuuuuummmmy! And by the way, I love reading your posts. Always interesting (and sometimes decadent). Hugs!
Oh my how wonderful! But please! You could easily make homemade chocolate frosting and they would be Devine!
I agree completely! Jamie wanted to make his famous brownies, but I said ” let’s keep it simple” and let the crust and the ghost peeps shine…….homemade chocolate icing sounds just perfect!
