Halloween has always been at the top of my list for favorite holidays. As a kid, all the fun was centered around picking out the perfect costume, trick-or-treating with my friends and pillowcases full of candy. As an adult, I still enjoy the costumes that I help my kids pick out but the most fun for me is baking Halloween treats for my family to enjoy. I get such a thrill out of coming up with spooky Halloween food recipe to freak out the kids a bit. But there’s still fun to be had with simple, less scary, Halloween dessert, especially ones that the kids can help me bake.
For instance, we like to do what I like to call Halloween Monster Munch recipes. These could be cookies, cake, brownies or even pie. The fun is making up your own special “monster munch” toppings which can be a variety of left-over Halloween candy from trick-or-treating or just your favorite seasonal candies that you’ve stocked up on. This time we picked out some family favorites like KRAFT Caramels, JET-PUFFED Mini Marshmallows, PLANTERS Honey Roasted Peanuts and a mix of orange and brown peanut butter candies.
This mixture of candies goes into a Monster Munch of deliciousness on top of a partially baked pan of brownies. After a little extra time in the oven, the candies meld into a mix of sweet candy topping for fudgy brownies! Simply let them cool and cut into squares for the whole family to enjoy!
