These Halloween Cereal Brownie Cookies are super cute and festive and inspired by Halloween. Filled with crunchy cereal and baked until soft and chewy. Each cookie has a gooey centre made from buttery melted chocolate ingredients and studded with Reese’s bat cereal for the perfect treat to make with kids or bring to a party!
I love Halloween- I think it’s so fun to get into the spirit of the season from decorations, to baking, to dressing up. It’s all for the cause and the fall vibes and colours are what make it extra special. It’s just a warm and cozy time of year and get everything out of the way before you hunker down for winter. So we’re getting our chocolate fill with our Halloween candy but also making these cookies to tie us over and keep us from eating all the candies meant for the kids. HAHA that is the challenge?!
These cookies are super fun and cute and expand a little bit when baking so they are a pretty good sized cookie. I love homemade chocolatey brownies and every bite is indulgent and melt in your mouth. Eat them warm or let them cool- either way they are sooo delicious.
We’ve made these brownie cookies are few times before by keeping them classic and all chocolate with nothing added, and in the Spring we turned them into Easter cookies by stuffing them with mini eggs. Well now we’re making them fun and spooky with bat cereal. Any Halloween cereal will do that’s crunchy and chocolatey. We used Reese’s puff’s bat shaped cereal but if you can get a hold of some Count Choculat or anything with green or orange for a pop of colour that works too. How we combined the cereal was we mixed in 1 1/2 cups into our brownie batter and afterwards, once the cookies were done baking and cooled a bit on the tray we gently nudged a few more pieces into the cookies for a bigger cereal look on top. The cereal doesn’t stay the crunchiest over time but eaten fresh they are super tasty and it’s hardly noticeable. After all, these are meant to be fun and spookyish.
