Hocus Pocus Spellbook Brownies

Boooooook! You can’t have a Hocus Pocus themed party without including Winifred’s Spellbook! These Spellbook Brownies are so simple to make and decorate. Kids will love these Halloween treats.

Edible candy eyes are something I’ve started keeping on hand because they make food so much more fun. Like a monster sandwich surprise in one of the kid’s lunch boxes. Hocus Pocus Spellbook Brownies

If you want to make this Halloween treat even easier, you can buy a box of brownie mix and a black icing tube.

The natural wrinkles of the brownie make it look like the “human skin” binding of the spellbook. Add the icing for the stitches and the wandering eye and you have a spooky spellbook!
