Total time: 38 mins
  • 16 tablespoons (224 grams) unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup (192 grams) light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (106 grams) sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (9 grams) vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups (178 grams) all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon (4 grams) salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1¼ cups (200 grams) chocolate chips
  • ½ cup (99 grams) Halloween sprinkles
  • Caramel dip
  • Halloween candy decorations/googly eyes
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Set aside a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. Place the butter, brown sugar and sugar into a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave until the mixture is completely melted and bubbly. Be sure to use oven mitts when removing from the microwave as the bowl will be very hot.
  3. Whisk to blend the ingredients together. Whisk in the vanilla, then the flour and salt.
  4. Continuously whisk the mixture while adding the eggs, to prevent cooking the eggs.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to mix in the chocolate chips. Most will melt, but you may have some that still hold their shape. Fold in the Halloween sprinkles.
  6. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray. Use a large cookie dough scoop or a gravy ladle to evenly transfer the batter to the muffin cups.
  7. Bake at 350°, on a rack in the middle of the oven, for 18 minutes.
  8. Remove and cool completely in the pan. Use a small metal spatula to go around the edges of the Gooey Halloween Brownie Cups. Remove from the pan and place the cups on a serving plate.
  9. Spoon a dollop of caramel dip over each Cup. Swirl it around with bits dripping over the edge.
  10. Top with Halloween candy decorations.
  11. Another option is to cut the Cups in half or quarters and place googly eyes on each exposed side.
