I know I may sound like a broken record already but can I just say, I’m so busy! I have deadlines to meet, shoots to finish, mommy duties, etc., etc. Kaloka!
Then, there’s Halloween. Just another excuse to escape my responsibilities. Hahaha! I am distracted as to what menu to prepare for the family. It has to be easy, quick to prepare, but still special.
I’m glad my daughter Aryanna is into baking. She volunteered to make dessert. Haaay salamat!
Since we love day-old brownies (it becomes chewier after a day or two), Aryanna prepared it in advance. Thank you sweetheart!
Here’s something you can also prepare for your loved ones for the “scariest” time of the year!
Aryanna’s Halloween Brownies
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into 8 cubes
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1 pack Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter candies (you can use any orange-colored candies too)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F.
Step 2: Grease the baking pan (preferably 13x9x2 pan)
Step 3: Stir chocolate and butter in a large sauce pan over low heat until melted and smooth.
Step 4: Cool 15 min.
Step 5: After it’s cooled, whisk sugar and vanilla into choco mixture. Whisk eggs then salt, then stir in the flour. Pour batter into the baking pan.
Step 6: Bake brownies for about 20 min.
Step 7: While still hot, add the Reese’s Peanut Butter candies on top of the brownies.
Step 8: Cool in pan before cutting.
Step 9: Serve with a snarl! “Rrr”…hey, it’s Halloween!
Trick and treat: If you’re too lazy (or too scared to make a mistake, haha), just buy a boxed brownies mix and no one will ever know. I won’t tell. Promise. LOL
Table setting tip: Use black plates for a change. Accessorize your table with orange accessories such as placemats or glassware.
