Boo Berry Brownie Bites and Scaredy Cat Brownies


This month, I was asked by General Mills along with several other bloggers to create some fun Halloween Treats using some of General Mills cereals.  I had in mind one specific idea.  However, it involved finding a box on Boo Berry Cereal.  Not an easy task in September.  I did manage to wrangle a box from a Target store yesterday.  However, the boxes should be hitting the shelves any day now for you to make up some of these Boo Berry Brownie Bites.

I mixed some of the marshmallows from the cereal into the brownie batter.  This helped make the brownie even better.  It made the brownie more ooey and gooey, two things that a brownie must be.  I also baked the brownies in mini muffin tins to get that fun bite size.  Finally, I topped them off with Betty Crocker’s fluffy white frosting along with sprinkles and the boo berry cereal.

I also created a scaredy cat brownie using a regular muffin tin to bake the brownies in.  These babies then get a topping with Betty Crocker’s chocolate frosting.  The cute cat face is made using some Trix to make the eyes along with Golden Grahams for the ears, pretzel sticks for whiskers, and red frosting for a nose and mouth.

I hope these treats help make your Halloween celebrations even more fun.
