Fudgy homemade Skeleton Brownies are spooky good! Dark chocolate chewy brownies made fresh from scratch, and topped with Easy Royal Icing “bones”. As much fun to make as they are to eat, and perfect for a Halloween party!
Rich, chewy and moist homemade brownies are always wonderful - and you'll adore these - and so will everyone else! Just plain fun, and so simple to make!
LET'S START WITH THE BEST BROWNIE INGREDIENTS:
DO I NEED A SPECIAL PAN?
I love using my Nordic Ware Spooky Skeleton Cakelet pan for these Halloween brownies, but if you don't have the specialty pan available, you can bake your brownies in a regular 9x13-inch pan lined with parchment paper, and then using a skeleton cookie cutter to cut the shapes. Or cut the brownies into "coffin" shapes, and pipe the skeletons on top with the Easy Royal Icing. This is more a concept than anything - so have fun!
If you are using the Nordic Ware Spooky Skeleton Cakelet pan, make sure to prepare the pan before baking your brownies to allow for easy removal and best definition. I've tested various methods - butter, oil, butter, cocoa - I've tried them all, but for this particular cakelet, I had the best detail and definition spraying each well with non-stick BAKING spray, and then using a pastry brush to brush the flour and oil into each little crevice. You'll need to wash and prepare the pan before each batch.
Another tip - make sure to gently tap the pan on the counter top after filling with brownie batter, which will remove air bubbles. Place a kitchen towel on your countertop, and then gently tap the pan a good 15-20 times, letting it sit for 3 minutes before giving it another 10-15 taps. Because of the detail of the pan, I recommend NOT adding any chocolate chips or add-ins to the brownie batter.
