Big Bad Brownie Bat Truffles

So good, these fudgy brownie bat truffles will fly away in no time.

Ingredients

  • 1 13-x-9″ pan fudgy brownie, baked and cooled
  • 1/2 c. Chocolate frosting
  • 7 Oreo cookies, halved and stuffing removed
  • 11 oz. chocolate
  • 2 c. black sanding sugars
  • 28 royal icing eyes or red mini M&Ms

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment with paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, roughly crumble brownie by hand. Mix in chocolate frosting and gently knead mixture until evenly moistened.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, portion out 1 tablespoon brownie frosting mixture and roll into small balls. Insert two halved Oreo cookies on either side to create wings. Place brownie balls on the prepared baking sheet and freeze until firm, 2 hours.
  4. Remove balls from freezer and let come to room temperature for 15 minutes. Heat chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 5-second bursts until melted. Dip bat brownie truffles in chocolate and dust with black sanding sugar. Decorate with royal icing eyes or mini M&Ms.

Zombie Brain On Booze

Kick off a Halloween bash with this insane, booze-spiked brain.

Ingredients

  • 2 c. water
  • 6 oz. strawberry Jell-O mix (two small packages or 1 large one)
  • 3/4 c. whipped cream–flavored vodka (like Pinnacle)
  • 2 c. frozen whipped topping (like Cool Whip)

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Once boiling, turn off heat and whisk in Jell-O mix, stirring until thoroughly dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add vodka and frozen whipped topping, whisking until combined. Let cool 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Grease or spritz the brain mold with cooking spray, then pour in Jell-O mixture. Place in the fridge overnight to set.
  4. Just before serving, fill a mixing bowl or casserole dish with warm water and gently dip the mold in the water for 20 seconds (without letting the water pour into the mold). The warm water will help loosen the Jell-O from the mold, so it flips out easily. Flip it out onto a serving platter; slice and serve.
