Frosted Zombie Brownies

These Frosted Zombie Brownies are ultra easy to make with the kids for Halloween! I have included both the homemade brownie recipe & the easy version as well!

  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1 Wilton Zombie Hand Decorating Kit
  • Green Jimmies Sprinkles


  1. Make brownies according to box instructions and allow to cool completely before
  2. frosting
  3. Use a spatula to coat the brownies with an even layer of chocolate frosting.
  4. Spread an even layer of brown sprinkles from the decorating kit across the top of the
  5. brownies.
  6. Place nine zombie hands across the brownies. Apply a small amount of pressure pushing
  7. them into the brownies to secure placement. *
  8. Place green sprinkles at the base of each zombie hand.
  9. Cut brownies and serve!
  10. ENJOY!
  11. Preheat oven to 350F and generously grease a 9 x 9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  12. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in 30 second increments, stirring between each 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  13. Whisk in brown sugar and eggs until combined.
  14. Sift in Flour, cocoa, and salt. Stir until smooth.
  15. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until set.
  16. Allow to cool before slicing
  17. Beat butter and the cocoa powder together in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low until light and fluffy. Gradually add in the milk and vanilla extract; beat together until smooth.
  18. Add the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until your desired consistency.
  19. * It may be easier to decide where to place the zombie hands if you cut the brownies into nine
  20. pieces before this step – especially with kids!
