Greek Yogurt Brownies for Halloween




I hope you like this great Idea for Halloween! It’s perfect to make with your children! Enjoy and Happy and Safe Halloween!


Ingredients:


  • ¼ Cup Unsweetened cocoa Powder
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • ¾ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Softened Unsalted Butter (113 g)
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ¾ Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tspn Vanilla Extract
  • ½ Tspn Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tspn Salt



To Decorate:
  • ⅔ Cup White Chocolate Chips (melted)
  • ½ Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (melted)
  • 20-24 Medium Marshmallows
  • 10 Mini Marshmallows
  • 10-12 Gummy Worms
  • 2-3 Tbsp Chocolate Sprinkles
  • Green Food Coloring (any color you like)
  • 10-20 Chocolate Chips


Preheat the Oven to 350ºF


Make the brownies:
In  a bowl combine the flour with the cocoa powder, the salt and the baking powder, stir well and set aside for a minute


In another bowl with an electric mixer,  beat the butter with the brown sugar and the granulated sugar, mix well on medium speed until everything is well incorporated in a grainy and creamy paste for about 2 minutes.  Then add in the vanilla extract and also add in the eggs, one egg at a time and mixing each egg for 30 seconds before adding the next one.


Once the last egg is well incorporated also add in the yogurt,  continue to mix on medium high until well incorporated.    Reduce the speed and add in half the flour, mix on low until incorporated, then add in the rest of the flour and continue to mix on low speed until combined. Do not over mix.
The batter would be very thick, that’s just perfect, now add in the chocolate chips and just stir until combined


Once the cake is ready. Let it cool completely before cutting it and decorating it.


To decorate the Brownies:
Melt a ¼ cup of semisweet chocolate chips.  Cover the surface of the cake with the melted semisweet chocolate, (just the surface). Then cut the cake into 20-24 small squares and set them aside for a minute.


Melt the rest of the semisweet chocolate and also melt the white chocolate chips.  
Dip at least half the marshmallows into the white chocolate, tap the excess chocolate and place the chocolate covered marshmallows right on the center of each brownie.  
Add some drop of green food coloring into the leftover melted white chocolate stir well until combined, and cover some marshmallows with this green chocolate as well.  Set them aside for about 10 minutes, so the chocolate starts to set.


Make some spiders. Cut the gummy worms in half, and cut the marshmallows in half. Dip the marshmallows in the semisweet chocolate.  Place the chocolate covered marshmallows on the brownies, place the gummy worms on the side to make the spider’s legs and sprinkle the marshmallows with chocolate sprinkles, add two chocolate chips right on top to make the spider’s eyes.


To finish decorating the White and green monsters, decora them with the mini marshmallows,  more chocolate chips and chocolate sprinkles.


Decorate them to your taste,  have fun. And have a great halloween!!

Enjoy!
