It’s only 2 days to Halloween! Are you ready? It seems like Halloween, more than any other holiday, is about throwing really cool parties with decorations and food items that people will talk about all the way into Thanksgiving. From punch with floating eyeballs, to hot dogs made to look like mummies, to cakes in the shape of spiders, Halloween and crazy food decorating go hand in hand. And nothing says it’s Halloween season like candy corn. Those colorful, sugary little cones mean one thing…Halloween is here again.
My favorite thing about this dessert is how geometric and pretty it is. It definitely looks like a painstaking process, putting all those lil candy corns in perfect alignment. But I gotta tell ya, it only took my husband and me about 3 minutes to decorate. That’s it. Don’t you just love things that look harder than they really are? If you answered yes to that question, then you should make this for your next Halloween party. It’s ssssoooo easy.
You should know that this dessert is only for those who have a great big sweet tooth and don’t mind sugar-overload. This stuff is super rich!
Candy Corn Brownie Pizza
Source: The Gazette
Makes: 12-16 servings
1 package (19 ounces) triple chocolate brownie mix
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil *I always use applesauce instead of oil. It saves you a few hundred calories!*
2 tablespoons water
1 cup chopped roasted peanuts (optional)
1 cup prepared chocolate frosting
3 cups candy corn (one 18 1/2-ounce bag)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium mixing bowl, stir together brownie mix, eggs, oil (or applesauce) and water until smooth. Stir in peanuts, if using.
Spread on a 13-inch pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.
Cool on pan. Spread frosting over cookie to within 1 inch of edge. Decorate with candy corn.
