Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!

Directions:

  1. Prepare Brownie Mix and baking pan according to the box directions.
  2. Unwrap Peppermint Patties. You will use 9 to 15 patties to top the brownies in a 13″ x 9″ pan.
  3. Optional – additional patties may be added to the brownie mix batter (whole or chopped). Cover these pieces with batter before baking.
  4. Bake brownies following the box directions.
  5. Once brownies are baked, remove from oven and let stand for 30 minutes. Then, top the brownies with Peppermint Patties. These will be the ones you decorate as vampires. Space the patties out so there will be one vampire per serving.
  6. Let the patties sit atop the warm brownies for 20 minutes. Then, add the Candy Eyes. You will be able to move them around a bit as the chocolate will be soft/melty. The chocolate will “glue” the eyes in place.
  7. Pipe a Red Frosting line for the mouth.
  8. Add White Frosting for the fangs. You can pipe or use toothpicks to achieve your fangs.
  9. Place the pan of decorated brownies in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to set.
  10. Remove from refrigerator and let brownies return to room temperature. Cover lightly.

 

 

Minty fudge Vampire Brownies are delicious Halloween goodies with and without the pappermint patties mixed into the batter. Make them how you will enjoy them best.
