Graveyard Brownies

Halloween is one of our favorite family holidays.  Mostly because we love to dress up, make yummy treats and go to the pumpkin patch.  I guess you could say we just love the fall.  Many families have traditions of decorating gingerbread houses for Christmas, but we have the tradition of making graveyard brownies.

What are graveyard brownies?  Well, mostly they are just regular brownies.  However, we dress them up with candy skeletons, mummies and pumpkins.  It has become a little tradition that my children look forward to.  Not only do they get to make brownies but they get to make a chocolate mess while doing it.

I thought your family might enjoy this tradition as well.  So I am sharing my favorite brownie recipe that I've been making for more than 15 years.  (No joke people!)  They make great chewy brownies for this project.
