Easy Pumpkin Patch Brownies

Looking for a quick but fun treat for your Halloween get-together this next week? Pumpkin Patch Brownies are a quick and easy way to make it look like you spent hours in the kitchen.

I had a little help from a few of my friends. If you have the time and want to save on pre-made items feel free to bake your own brownies and whip up your own chocolate frosting. Please let me know if you make your own pumpkins, too!

Here’s a picture tutorial of the steps to finished product. I squiggled on a few green leaves and vines to give my patch a little more detail and make folks think I really slaved away.

The only item I personally made was the green icing. Here’s my formula for quick and easy colored icing – 2 tablespoons powdered sugar sifted : 2 drops green food coloring : a splash of water. Then just play around with the consistency. I only mixed up this tiny amount and put it in a plastic baggy but you can use that ratio to make more. I have decorating tips, but you could also snip a small hole in the corner of your baggies to get the job done!

There you have it – easy peasy! So easy, in fact, a six-year-old can do it! Don’t you love his RED hair? DH took him to the Pumpkin Palooza at work yesterday and he came home with red hair. Thankfully it did (mostly) wash out for school today!

Tomorrow morning the ladies ministry at my church is having a Mugs & Muffins get-together. We can pop in between 9 and 10:30 with our favorite mug and enjoy a muffin and fellowship!- how fun is that?

After that my family will be cheering the HOGS onto a victory against Ole’ Miss (dear Lord, I pray). We are also going to carve pumpkins and dress the door for Halloween this weekend. BBC drew me a picture of what he wants it to look like. There WILL be compromise involved. Oh my!

How about you? What’s on your agenda for the weekend?

    I love short cut cooking! Especially since baking is not an area I’m all that strong in, though I do try:-) What a fun way to make holiday treats with the kids! My two are going to love making and eating these!
