Looking for cute Halloween brownie ideas? These yummy Halloween brownies, shaped like mummies, will be the first sweet treat to disappear from your Halloween party dessert table.

The little mummy brownies are fudgy and whimsical with an eerie kid-friendly look.

Halloween is a fun time of the year to make cute food desserts. Recipes like this are a hit with both the kids and fun loving adults and are usually very easy to make.

Mummies are also a favorite Halloween costume for many children. Who doesn’t like being wrapped in white bandages for a fun and scary look for trick or treating?

Instead of using cloth bandages to make a mummy, these mummy bandages will be made from melted white chocolate to make your Halloween even more tasty.

These delightfully eerie Halloween brownie treats are not just for the kids! They are perfect to go along with your daily crossword puzzle, or even a Halloween word search printable.

These cookie dough brownies are another of my latest creations.

Making mummy brownies

This yummy mummy brownies recipes have a deliciously thick chocolate fudge brownie base and the brownies are decorated with white chocolate bandage stripes and cute edible eyes for a unique and fun look.

The ingredients for these fun and spooky brownies are just a few. Just combine your ingredients:

  • cocoa
  • sugar
  • flour
  • eggs
  • butter
  • salt
  • vanilla extract

I love that the recipe supplies are all those that I always have on hand in my pantry!

This means that I can make them on the fly when my daughter tells me that she just NEEDS something to take to school tomorrow for a party.

Sure, you can use a box brownie recipe, but the taste of these is so much more moist and delicious. They seriously only take about 5 minutes to prepare so why not go for a home made brownie?

Let’s get started on these Halloween themed brownies!

Start your brownie Halloween treats by melting the butter in the microwave and then adding it to the cocoa and sugar in a stand mixer. Mix well until the ingredients are blended.

Stir in the eggs, one at a time, and then add the vanilla extract. Look how rich and chocolatey this mixture is.

I feel like diving in there right now!

The flour and salt get added last.  Mix it well but don’t over mix, or the chocolate fudge brownies will be too chewy.

I used a parchment paper in an 8 x 8 inch pan. Place the batter in it. See how thick and rich it looks?

THAT is the reason for making these home made and not using brownie mixes!

Bake the Halloween brownies for 25 minutes until the brownies are done and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Be sure to allow the Halloween chocolate brownies to cool completely before you cut and decorate them.

Since the pan is small (just 8 x 8 inches) when you cut into 9 slices, the brownies will be square.

To give them more of a mummy look, trim them a bit when you cut them to make them more rectangular shaped. Guess where the trimmings went on mine? 😉

Time to make them into mummy brownies!

The fun part of Halloween recipes like this is decorating them. Be sure to allow your brownies to cool completely and then cut into 9 even sized bars.

Separate the brownies to make decorating easier.

Place your white chocolate into a bowl and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments until it is melted and creamy. I used vanilla Candy Quik for melting.

White chocolate chips, and Candy Melts will also work.

Take care when melting the chocolate.  White baking chocolate caramelizes easily (giving it brown specks) if you heat it too much.

Go in slow increments and stir after each to prevent this from happening. I find that lowering the temperature on my microwave to medium power prevents the graininess.

The melted white chocolate goes into an icing bag.

Snip off the end of the bag and pipe the icing ever each brownie with bandage like stripes, being sure to allow the melted chocolate to extend over the sides of the mummy brownies.

For the final touch, while the icing is still soft, add two candy eyes to each mummy brownie. Don’t worry too much if the bandages are uneven, and make the eyes slightly lopsided.

This adds to the mummy effect!

Tada! What an adorable mummy Halloween brownie!

I cut these Halloween brownies into 9 bars, so they are quite large.  For this size, each of these mummy brownies has 454 calories. If you cut them into 12 smaller brownies, they’ll have 341 calories each.
