Frankenstein Halloween Brownies – Frankenstein Halloween Brownies are the cutest Halloween snacks. Quick and easy Halloween treats anyone can make, especially fun for kids!
These fun Frankenstein Halloween Brownies are my favorite out of the entire Halloween brownie series I’m sharing with you. There’s just something so cute and sweet about a silly Frankenstein face.
I wanted to give you several Halloween desserts you can honestly make in just a short amount of time. You can even use a brownie mix.
These Halloween treats may look like they take a lot of time, but they really don’t. You can either mix up a quick batch of sugar cookie icing, or you can buy pre-made decorating icing, whatever is easiest for you.
Below you’ll find a few tips so that hopefully, making these Halloween snacks can be quick, seamless, and enjoyable for you. This is an opportunity for you to grab your kids and have some Halloween fun with them in the kitchen!

If you’d rather skip all of my baking tips, important cooking info for this recipe, and similar recipe ideas – and get straight to the delicious recipe for Frankenstein Halloween brownies – just scroll down to the bottom, where you’ll find a printable recipe card.
WHAT KIND OF BROWNIE MIX SHOULD I USE?
You really want a brownie that’s going to be easy to slice and pull out of the pan, nothing too messy or gooey.
My first batch of brownies turned out really soft and gooey; I didn’t realize they’d be that gooey. They could hardly be scraped off the bottom of the pan.
I recommend using cake-like or chewy brownies (preferably chewy) that won’t be so gooey and will easily come right out of the pan.
This brownie mix worked wonderfully for our Frankenstein brownies.
WHAT KIND OF ICING SHOULD I USE?
Like I said above, you can mix up a quick batch of my favorite sugar cookie icing and then separate it into the green and black colors.
Or you can use pre-made icing or decorating icing that’s ready to go.
Personally, I love the flavor of homemade frosting. It just tastes so much better! But whatever you decide to use will work just fine.
HOW DO I COLOR THE ICING FOR MY FRANKENSTEIN BROWNIES?
Just separate your icing into two bowls, and mix according to your specific food coloring directions.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE FRANKENSTEIN HALLOWEEN BROWNIES
You’ll need just a handful of things to make Frankenstein Halloween brownies, including the following:
TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE THESE SCRUMPTIOUS HALLOWEEN TREATS
Slice your brownies into squares or at least, as close to square shaped brownies as you can.
To decorate brownies as Frankenstein, follow these steps:
- Spread a layer of green icing on top of the brownie.
- Using Wilton Round Tip 5 (or the closest off brand cake tip) and a small pastry bag, add hair to your Frankenstein with the black icing. Just do a zig-zag along the hairline, and outline around the top of the head. Then fill in with black icing.
- Add candy eyeballs for his eyes.
- Add a small smile or mouth with the black icing.
- Then add a small piece of stitching to one cheek, also with black icing.
Don’t worry about perfection because the more imperfect your Frankenstein looks, the more he’ll look like the monster mash-up his character was really created to be. Just have fun with it!
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE CAKE TIPS AND PASTRY BAGS?
No worries! You really don’t have to have the cake tip I mentioned above or the pastry bag. You can get creative with what you have.
If you have sandwich bags, snip the corner of a sandwich bag, fill the bag with icing, and swirl away. Works like a charm!
Or you can just use ready made icing that comes with a convenient tip for decorating, making the process even easier.
