Description

Adorable and decadent brownie balls that will surely be gobbled up quickly!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups Melted Butter
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Cocoa
  • ¾ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • _____
  • DECORATIONS:
  • Edible Marker
  • 1 bag Candy Corn
  • 1 box Whoppers
  • 1 box Cherry Passion Tic-Tacs
  • 1 bag Peppermint Pearls
  • 1 box (7 Oz.) Melting Chocolate

Preparation

For the brownies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat together butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and then slowly add the dry mixture to the wet. Mix in the chocolate chips until well-combined.

Pour batter into a 9×13″ well-greased pan and bake for 22-25 minutes. Let brownies cool.

With your hands, form 1″ balls with the cooled brownies. Lay them on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.

To decorate:

Use the edible marker to draw pupils on the peppermint pearls.

Melt 1 square of baking chocolate according to the package’s directions. Using a toothpick, use the melted chocolate as glue to attach the pearls and Tic Tacs to the Whoppers. Let these dry for about 20 minutes.

Melt 1 box (6 squares) of baking chocolate according to the package’s directions. Dunk each brownie ball into the melted chocolate with a spoon, tapping the spoon on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place the ball back on the parchment-paper-covered cookie sheet, and immediately attach the Whopper head and 3 candy corns (this takes some finesse, trust me).

Allow them to dry and start listening for the “awwwws.”

I was just browsing the Holiday section to see what recipe’s I should make for Thanksgiving and this one is too cute to pass up. Great idea and I know that the kids will love this. Can’t wait to give it a try this Thanksgiving.

My boyfriend and I made a dozen of these to bring along to Thanksgiving dinner at his aunt’s house. They are ADORABLE! I couldn’t find the peppermint balls so we used frosting and just cut the tips off of the candy corns we’d already bought for the little white beaks. The brownies were delicious and stayed surprisingly moist for being trapped in frozen chocolate. Loved them. I planning on modifying them with white baker’s chocolate to make snow men for Christmas! Thanks!!
