Is it easy to prepare?

This is an easy brownie recipe, incredibly simple. You won’t believe that something so easy to prepare can taste this good. And whipping up these spooky brownies is easier than you might think.

All you’ll need is a scale to measure the ingredients, a bowl for mixing the batter, a spatula, a baking pan (mine is 23×33 cm), and just 40 minutes, including baking time.

After that, you’ll have a dense, flavorful brownie ready to be enjoyed, and it pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream.

Marshmallow ghosts

These little apparitions elevate this delightful brownie into a spooky treat. Crafting marshmallow batter is straightforward, but a couple of key tips are crucial for success.

The caramel

Caramel serves as the foundation for the marshmallow. To ensure consistently perfect results, investing in a kitchen thermometer is highly recommended. This guarantees success in the preparation.

Marshmallow is created by combining caramel and gelatin. It’s crucial to allow sufficient time for the gelatin to hydrate before incorporating the caramel.

However, it’s essential to add the caramel gradually. Due to its high temperature, adding it too quickly could compromise the properties of the gelatin.


Once we have the batter with soft peaks prepared, it’s important not to let it sit for too long. While there’s no need to rush, it’s essential not to let it linger. In other words, once it’s ready, we’ll begin shaping the fantasies slowly but steadily.
