Thursday's Meal: Halloween treats

Melissa Brown from Whole Foods shares fun Halloween themed recipes using brownie bites.

The recipes are as follows:

Mummy Brownie Bites

Ingredients

1 (11.25-ounce) package Two-Bite Brownie Bites

1 cup white chocolate chips

1 tablespoon dried blueberries or dried currants

Method

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place brownie bites on the prepared baking sheet. 

Melt white chocolate in a microwave or a double boiler. Transfer half of melted chocolate to a small bowl. Working quickly, dip tops of brownie bites in white chocolate and spread to form a thin coating. Refrigerate until chocolate is just set, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer remaining melted white chocolate to a piping bag or a re-sealable plastic bag and set aside. 

Remove brownie bites from the refrigerator. Cut open tip of piping bag 1/8 inch wide. Pipe stripes of melted white chocolate back and forth, left to right, across top of each brownie bite to look like a wrapped mummy. Use dried blueberries or currants to make eyes. Let sit at room temperature until chocolate is set. Brownie bites will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Googly-Eye Spider Brownie Bites

Ingredients

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons honey

1/4 cup pumpkin purée

1 (11.25 oz) package Two-Bite Brownies

1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips

6 dried apricots, thinly sliced

Method

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and honey with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Transfer about 2 tablespoons of the mixture to a small, re-sealable plastic bag and set aside. Add pumpkin to remaining cream cheese mixture and beat again for 30 seconds. Transfer orange frosting to a second re-sealable plastic bag. 

 

Snip off one corner from each bag of frosting (very small for white frosting). Pipe a generous layer of orange frosting over the top of each brownie. Pipe 2 small dots with white frosting to form eyes. Arrange a chocolate chip in the middle of each eye. Arrange the dried apricots as legs, sticking them into the frosting on either side.
