how to make Hocus Pocus book brownies

Detailed instructions and measurements to make Hocus Pocus book brownies are listed in the recipe card at the bottom of this page.

  1. Prepare your brownies on a parchment lined baking sheet or pan. 
  2. Allow the brownies to cool completely and remove them from the pan. I like to leave the parchment hanging from the sides for easy lift out of the pan. 
  3. Cut the brownies into book size shapes. 
  4. Using the cookie icing or melted chocolate, place a small dab on the brownie and put the eye on. Then, decorate the remaining brownie. 
  5. Allow the icing to set completely before serving.

tips, tricks and faqs

If you’d like to use dark chocolate, but need it darker in color, you can add black food coloring after it’s melted.

I find that lining a baking sheet with parchment hanging over the edges works best for removing the brownies.

What can I use in place of the cookie icing pen?

You can use melted dark chocolate with a little bit of black food coloring.

substitutions and alterations

  • Brownies – While brownies work best due to color and texture, you could also make this recipe using blondies.
  • Large Candy Eyes – If you can’t find large candy eyes at your local store or Amazon, I recommend purchasing large white candies and an edible marker. You can draw the eye on the white candies.
  • Cookie Icing – Instead of using a cookie icing pen, you can also use melted dark chocolate. To make it darker, add a little black food coloring.

how to store spooky brownies

Leftover brownies are best stored on the counter in an airtight refrigerator for up to 3 days.
