How To Make The Halloween Brookie Eyeballs!
Don’t bat an eyeball or you’ll miss this short instructional area, so you too can go from novice to pro brookie eyeball treat maker in seconds!
Step 1: Use the directions on The brownie box to prep
Follow the directions on your brownie box for the oven and the prep.
Step 2: Prep the Brookie Brownie Tray
Spray the brookie pan with nonstick spray.
Place an Oreo on each of the 6 brookie cavity spots.
Step 3: Build the Brookie Brownie Eyeballs For Halloween
Using the prepared brownie mixture fill each Brookie cavity, being careful to not move the cookie.
I highly suggest holding the Oreo sandwich cookie in place while pouring around it so that it sits and stays directly in the middle.
Yes, I do cover the Oreo cookie with batter FYI!
Step 4: Bake the Chocolate Halloween Brookie Brownie Eyeballs
Bake the Halloween eyeball brownie Brookie and then remove at the end of the suggested baking time (hop to the Brookie Halloween recipe)
Once the chocolate round brownie Brookies are done cooling in the tray, you’ll then remove them to a cooling rack.
Again, allow the soon-to-be Brookie eyeballs to cool more (refer to recipe card for timing details)
Step 5: Fill the Brookie Eyeball Cavities
Working with each cooled brookie, use a cookie scoop and add a scoop of whipped topping.
Follow that with an eyeball, slanted (angled to the side), or use any of the alternate ingredients I suggested below.
Serve or refrigerate. (whipped topping).
Relevant Baking + Prep Tips For the Halloween Brookie Eyeball Treats
Since I make these treats quite often, I am able to offer some insider’s perspective as it’s tried and true advice.
- always coat the pan with nonstick even if it is nonstick!
- always cover the sandwich cookie,
- never remove the baked brookie from the pan until it is fully cooled or you will have a broken eyeball brookie
- always allow the Brookie Halloween eyeballs to sit after you have removed them from the pan for additional time
- For immediate serving, whipped topping works well, however, you can also fill it with icing that needs to set
Popular Substitutions For Brookie Eyeball Treats
- For those of you that love caramel, grab those caramel bites and drop a few in each cavity.
- If you prefer to add in some rice cereal, go for it, as it provides a crunch.
- Add crumbled chocolate bars atop the icing
- use red gel icing to make bloodshot eyes instead of using eyeballs
- use candy eyes to make the eye area instead of whipped topping
How Do You Store Leftover Halloween Brookie Eyeballs?
The answer to how to store leftover Halloween brownie Brookies really depends on 3 items:
- did you fill the Brookie eyeballs?
- do you like frozen leftovers?
- will you have leftovers?
As long as you have not filled the eyeball chocolate brownies with the whipped topping you can leave them on the counter on a covered cake pedestal or use an airtight container with a lid.
If you have added the whipped topping you will need to refrigerate the Halloween oreo brookie eyeballs because that is not able to sit out on the counter!
For any extra brookie eyeballs, you can place them in a zippered freezer bag and store them for up to six months and then use them as regular brookies instead of eyeballs!
