  • 2 cups of shaved almonds
  • 1 box of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 2 cans of Betty Crocker vanilla icing
  • 6 square pretzels
  • 1 cup of candy corn
  • green food coloring


  • Watch the video instructions here:
  • In a 9x13-inch pan, bake the brownies according to the instructions on the box. Let cool, then refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Using the house cookie cutter (see blog post for link), cut out 6 house-shaped brownies.
  • Attach the door by adding icing to the back of the pretzel.
  • Decorate the house with vanilla icing spider webs.
  • Add green food coloring to 1.5 cans of vanilla icing. Using Wilton tip #233, pipe the grass onto a small round plate.
  • Stand up the brownie house in the green grass frosting.
  • For the roof shingles, pipe vanilla icing on the roof then add the shaved almonds. Start at the bottom and work your way upward.
  • Build the fence using shaved almonds and decorate the yard with candy corn. Happy Halloween!



If the green grass icing is a bit runny, because you're adding liquid food coloring, put the icing in the fridge for 10 minutes so it firms up before you pipe the grass frosting. Otherwise, it'll look like green globs of icing.
