My favorite part of fall, though, will always be Halloween. 

I’m not sure that I’ll ever outgrow my love of it. In terms of sheer fun and festivities, it’s a hard holiday to beat.

And these 17 Halloween brownie recipes are excellent examples of why.

Now, let’s check them out! 

1. Halloween Swirl Cream Cheese Brownies

These gorgeous orange and black brownies are a Halloween culinary masterpiece. And don’t even get me started on their fantastic flavor. 

They’re rich, fudgy, and made even tastier by a decadent cream cheese layer.

You might make them for the kids, but the adults will go wild for them, too. 

2. Graveyard Halloween Brownies

These brownies are indeed covered in gravestones. But even so, they’re almost too cute to be spooky.

After all, Milano cookie gravestones aren’t all that scary. 

When you add a candied pumpkin beside them, you can hang it up. You’ve given up on frightening and moved right into adorable.

Plus, they’re thick, chewy, and chocolatey. What’s not to love?

3. Spooky Eyed Halloween Brownies (Dairy-Free)

Want to whip up some festive Halloween brownies but don’t have much time?

You can transform any brownie with a few sprinkles and some candy eyes.

They’ll be just as Halloween-friendly as all the rest, but the decorating is minimal.

4. Vampire Brownies Frightfully Fun Halloween Treat

Add some Halloween flair and minty freshness to these brownies with Peppermint Patties.

Pick up some brownie mix, or use your favorite homemade brownie recipe.

Then, simply add some candy eyes and fangs to your Peppermint Patties. Place them in neat (or disorderly) rows on the brownies, and call it a day!

5. Monster Brownies

Spoiler alert: There are no actual monsters in these monster brownies. 

However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t a Halloween favorite. You’ll load them down with M&Ms, peanuts, chocolate chips, and more. 

There’s a monster mouthful of sweetness in every bite.

6. Hocus Pocus Spellbook Brownies

Do you absolutely love Hocus Pocus? Watching it is an unbreakable Halloween tradition in my house every year. 

You can showcase your love for your favorite Halloween flick with these brownies.

These take a little more creativity and effort. (Though not as much as you might think!)

However, they’re well worth it in the end. 

Each one looks just like Winifred’s creepy, single-eye spell book.

7. Candy Corn Halloween Brownies

Some people don’t enjoy candy corn for Halloween, but I think it’s great. It’s especially tasty on top of thick, fudgy brownies. 

They’re sweet, chewy, colorful, and delicious. And if you can make boxed brownies, you can whip these up with ease. 

8. Witch’s Brew Brownies

Do you regularly have a ton of candy left over after Halloween? If so, use it up by making these witch’s brew brownies.

You’ll need boxed brownie mix and the ingredients it requires.

Then, simply pile your leftover candy (and candy eyes) on top. It couldn’t be simpler, and it’ll give you a total chocolate overload.

9. Halloween Candy Brownies

Halloween candy brownies are similar to the witch’s brew brownies above.

The difference is that you put your Halloween candy at the bottom of these. Plus, they’re homemade and not from a box.

Decorate them with tombstones and bones like the picture if you want. They’re super scrumptious either way. 

10. Spider Web Halloween Brownies

Even without the decorations, this brownie recipe is one of my favorites. It turns out the softest, most melt-in-your-mouth brownies.

They’re chewy and chocolatey, and the edges don’t get overly crisp like some brownies.

Make them Halloween festive by adding white icing spiderwebs. It’s simple and doesn’t require any special tools or decorating skills.

11. Classic Fat Witch Dark Chocolate Brownies

There’s nothing overtly Halloween about these brownies. Except perhaps their name.

But ‘Fat Witch’ refers to the bakery they come from, not the brownies themselves.

Even so, they deserve a spot on this list because they’re so incredible. And hey, if they’re a Fat Witch bakery copycat, that’s Halloween-themed enough for me!

12. Monster Mash Brownies

There’s no denying that these brightly colored brownies are perfect for Halloween.

However, you won’t have to wait for Halloween to make them. They’d also be great for a child’s birthday party!

All kids will love their multi-colored, spectacularly swirled appearance.

And those candy googly eyes are just too stinking cute not to appreciate. 

13. Halloween Pumpkin Brownies

These multi-colored brownies look like they’re covered in tiny pumpkins.

However, that’s not the only thing pumpkin-inspired about them. They also contain a ½ cup of pumpkin puree.

And don’t forget the fantastic pumpkin pie spice! It takes 5 minutes to have these ready for the oven and another 40 minutes to bake them.

If you love pumpkin and chocolate, you’ll adore these chewy treats. When it comes to fall favorites, these are hard to top. 

14. Ghost Brownies

Making decorative ghosts has never been easier. All you need to do is whip up some homemade marshmallows.

Then, smear them in ghost shapes on top of your brownies. Add black icing dots for eyes, and you’re all set. 

Pro Tip: Pick up some edible glitter if you want to make your ghosts look even more otherworldly.

It makes them shimmery and much more ghostly. 

15. Mummy Brownies

Mummy brownies require simple decoration, as well.

Just add some strategically placed buttercream frosting and candy eyes. 

It makes your scrumptious brownies spectacularly spooky.

16. Leftover Halloween Candy Bar Brownies

Here’s another simple boxed brownie mix that you can jazz up with leftover candy. It takes 10 minutes of prep and another 40 to cook. 

They’re rich, fudgy, chewy, and chocolatey. Feel free to go a little crazy with the Halloween candy, though.

You won’t have to stick solely to the chocolate candy. 

Add peanut butter, toffee, caramels, etc., for a richer, more diverse flavor. 

17. High Hat Brownie Cupcakes

I’m not sure I saved the best for last. But I certainly saved the most indulgent for last.

These aren’t just brownies, they’re brownie cupcakes. And yes, they’re just as yummy as they sound.

You make each cupcake with a double stack of brownies. Separate them with some super-rich marshmallow fluff frosting. 

Then, top each one in more frosting and dip it in chocolate! As if all that weren’t enough, you finish them off with a literal cherry on top.
