Scaredy Cat Brownies

 Yesterday at school we celebrated my daughter's birthday! Since her birthday is so close to Halloween she chose to taken in a scarey treat to share! I showed her these Scaredy Cat Brownies and she loved them! For the receipe I will once again send you over to the Martha Stewart Everyday Food blog. In that recipe she has you make brownies from scratch and include mint patties in the middle of the brownies as well as on top for the cat faces. I decided to take the easy path and just use a brownie mix and do the cats on top.
I used a 9x13 pan and managed to squeeze 20 cat faces per pan. This was ok since I was making them for 5 and 6 year olds. If I were making them for adults, I probably would have only done 15 per pan so they could be a little bigger brownie bites.
 For as high maintenance as it looks, they actually went quite fast. When you put the mint patties on top of the warm brownies they will start to get a little melty, which is then the perfect time to place the candy eyes and chocolate chip ears on the bats. Once the patties are completely cooled then you can use the gel frosting for the mouth.

Happy Haunting with some spooky treats!
