Pumpkin Patch Halloween Brownies – How to make quick and easy pumpkin patch Halloween brownies for kids, a fun Halloween treat recipe with candy corn pumpkins and green icing!
Fall is full of so many beautiful things, including that ever anticipated trip to the pumpkin patch. Why not bring a little bit of the pumpkin patch into your Halloween treats with the cutest pumpkin patch Halloween brownies ever?
While you will need just a little bit of green decorating icing, the only other things you’ll need for this brownie recipe are a brownie mix and candy corn pumpkins.
My dad used to keep these cute little mellowcreme pumpkins in our farm truck, along with Tootsie Rolls. But when fall hit, he always had a bag of Brach’s candy pumpkins.
Every time I eat them, they take me back to riding around in the farm truck with my dad, feeding the cows and working on the farm.
Now I’m using them to make the cutest and pretty much the quickest little Halloween desserts. Place a couple of pumpkins, swag a little bit of green icing, and you’re all set, easy peasy!

WHAT KIND OF BROWNIE MIX SHOULD I USE?
I really recommend using a brownie that’s going to be easy to slice and pull out of the pan, nothing too messy or gooey.
Our first batch of brownies gave us a really ooey gooey brownie; I didn’t realize they’d be that gooey. They could hardly be scraped off the bottom of the pan.
Definitely go for more cake-like or chewy brownies (preferably chewy) that won’t be so gooey and will easily pop right out of the pan.
This brownie mix worked fantastically well for our pumpkin patch brownies.
WHAT KIND OF ICING SHOULD I USE?
You have two options here: You can either mix up a quick batch of my favorite sugar cookie icing and then color it green.
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 PUMPKIN PATCH BROWNIES?
Add food coloring to your icing, and mix it according to your specific food coloring directions. I will say that it doesn’t take a lot either.
Rule of thumb when baking or mixing up anything, especially when adding food coloring to anything: Start with a small amount because you can always add more, but you can’t take away.
I used Wilton Kelly Green for the vines on my pumpkin patch treats.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE PUMPKIN PATCH HALLOWEEN BROWNIES
You’ll need just a few things to make pumpkin patch Halloween brownies, including the following:
- Already baked and cooled brownies
- Green sugar cookie icing
- Candy pumpkins – Brach’s Mellowcreme Pumpkins are my favorite.
TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE THESE SCRUMPTIOUS HALLOWEEN TREATS
Slice your brownies into squares or as close to square shaped brownies as you can.
To decorate brownies, follow these steps:
- Using Wilton Round Tip 5 (or the closest off brand cake tip) and a small pastry bag, add pumpkin vines (and leaves if you want) to the top of the brownie with green icing. Just do a little swag with little loops around the outside edge of the brownie; think of how long and wispy a pumpkin vine looks.
- Add a dab of green icing to the bottom of your candy pumpkins and set in place with the vines. You can add 2 or 3 pumpkins to each brownie.
- If you have time and want to, you can even add a little bit more vine coming down from the stem of the pumpkin to meet the vine on the top of the brownie. This step is totally optional, though.
The most important thing to remember is don’t try to make them perfect. If you’ve ever grown pumpkins, you know how much of a tangled mess the vines can be.
Just have fun with it, and get your kids in the kitchen with you. They’ll have so much fun decorating these fun little Halloween brownies.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE CAKE TIPS AND PASTRY BAGS?
That’s ok! 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.
Or you can just use ready made icing that comes with a convenient tip for decorating, making the process even easier.
If you want to use homemade icing and have sandwich bags, you can snip the corner of a sandwich bag, fill the bag with icing, and swirl away. Works like a charm!
