Spooky Celebrations with Ghoulishly Gooey Brownies & Frothy Fruit Punch
Halloween is almost here and for our family, that means costumes, pumpkins, chocolates and spooky celebrations! If you know me, you are well aware of my love for chocolate, not to mention my family’s love for chocolate! Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year because it’s filled with chocolate and baked treats that create spooky celebrations.
Some of my favorite chocolate candies are Snickers, Milky Way and Peanut M&Ms, all of which I found for a great price at Walmart. I headed to Walmart and picked up a bag of the Mixed Miniatures (230 pieces including Milky Way, Twix, 3 Musketeers and Snickers) and a bag of the Mixed Fun Size (55 pieces including Twix, Snickers, M&M Plain and M&M Peanut). I also picked up a gallon of yummy Hawaiian Punch (in the Fruit Juicy Red flavor), as well as a few 2-Liter bottles of 7-Up. I was on my way to creating some delicious recipes to enjoy at our Spooky Celebration!
Everyone in our family loves brownies, so I thought why not combine brownies and chocolate into a yummy treat!! With that came Ghoulish Gooey Brownies. With the brownies, we had to have a fun drink, right? That’s where the Frothy Fruit Punch comes into play. Both recipes are super easy to make and really yummy to eat!!
