Hocus Pocus Winifred’s Spellbook Brownies

Wake up sleepyhead! It’s time to make these Hocus Pocus Winifred’s Spellbook Brownies!

We’ve been watching Hocus Pocus non-stop all month long. It’s one of our favorite Halloween movies. If you’re familiar with the movie, Winifred’s Spellbook is her prized possession, given to her by the Devil himself.

These brownies are the perfect dessert for while you are watching the movie! Or of course, during a Halloween party!

I use a regular brownie mix to make these, but if you have a favorite homemade brownie recipe, feel free to use that!

How to make these fun Hocus Pocus Winifred’s Spellbook Brownies

You will need:

  • 1 Box Brownies, Prepared
  • Candy Eyeballs
  • Black Food Coloring
  • 1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine, softened
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Milk or Heavy Cream
  • Pastry bag
  • Prepare brownies as instructed. Let cool.
  • Cream butter and vanilla extract until smooth, gradually add in powdered sugar.
  • Once combined add black food coloring until as dark as you would like.
  • Put frosting in pastry bag and cut medium to small corner in top of bag.
  • Cut brownies into 16 equal pieces.
  • Pipe small circle of icing in middle of right side, and place candy eyeball on icing to attach.
  • Then add remaining decorations to resemble Winifred’s spellbook. Decorate remaining brownies and enjoy!

See? It’s no hocus pocus that these are simple!

Tip: Pop your brownies in the freezer for a few minutes to flash cool them before cutting them! It makes cutting them much easier, but also putting on all of the decorations easier too.
