YUM!.. I had a box of "Gir-- Brownie mix which already had chips in it so I skipped the Butterfingers. That would be a great addition for kids but we are all adults and I didn't want them too sweet; my big guys enjoyed the spider web!:) I made this to play up Halloween this month. I used an 9" pan but wasn't able to get as many circles as I needed to use up all of the cream cheese I would use a 10-inch pan next time. I followed the box's instructions which were "bake at 325 for 50 minutes" It baked perfect and the cream cheese didn't brown too much at the lower temp. Read More

So much fun! My son needed something for school. Since I knew he couldn't take a knife in I made individuals in a cupcake tin. Definitely need to make sure you get the cream cheese mixture SMOOTH but easy-peasy!!! Read More

This brownie was a show stopper. It was simple to make and the presentation was awesome. I added meringue mini ghosts and chocolate/graham cracker mice to capture the full Halloween effect. Read More

Delicious! My family doesn't like cream cheese so I used vanilla frosting. We put it on after it came out of the oven. Read More

This came out great!! I got mixed up and made the webbing backward (outside to inside) but it still looked really good. I made spiders out of chocolate chips and frosting. Super-cute! Read More
