These brownies only take a few minutes to decorate and the vampires are so cute.
I first saw these vampire brownies when Martha Stewart made them years ago. They’ve since become a go-to brownie option whenever I’m looking for a last-minute Halloween party food or just a Halloween treat to have around the house.

What You’ll Need
I always use a boxed brownie mix, but you can make them from scratch if you have a favorite recipe.
Vampire Brownie Decorating Ingredients
This recipe requires the items below to decorate.
- Brownie mix and ingredients needed to make them
- Miniature York Peppermint Patties (18)
- Red gel or red icing
- White icing
Make the brownies according to the box directions.
I like to line the pan with foil because it makes it easy to take out of the pan. If you use foil, you’ll want to spray the foil with cooking spray.
To make these Halloween treats, I use a 9×9 pan.
Add miniature peppermint patties to the brownies.
Figure out how many brownies you’ll cut from the pan and draw an imaginary line where you’ll cut the brownies. Place a peppermint patty in the middle of each brownie.
Press each patty into the batter and scoop batter on top of the patty.
Bake as directed on the brownie box.
Pull the brownie out of the pan using the foil.
Put the brownie onto some parchment paper.
Using a pizza cutter, trim off the edges of the brownie.
I don’t throw the brownie edges away. These make great ice cream toppings or a snack to eat before it’s time to serve the Halloween brownies.
If you want the brownies to be more rectangular, cut the brownie into 6 pieces. I think that squares work great for this recipe (and I needed more brownies) so I cut this brownie into 9 pieces.
Place a Peppermint Patty on each brownie.
Remove the peppermint patties from the wrappers and place one in the center of each brownie. If the brownies are warm, you won’t need to use icing to make the peppermint patties stick to the brownie. I often wait until they’re cool and use a small dot of icing underneath the peppermint to make it stick to the brownie.
Place eyes on the brownie.
Add a dot of frosting onto the back of each eye and then place them onto the peppermint patty.
Draw mouth onto the peppermint patty.
Using red gel, draw a straight line to make the vampire’s mouth.
Draw the vampire’s fangs.
Use the white icing to pipe the two white fangs onto the red line. The fangs are simply two white lines.
That’s all there is to this one! Super easy! Hope you have fun making these easy vampire brownies.
