Spook up things this Halloween with my festive Cauldron Brownies. Kids of all ages will want to stir up deliciousness with these!
Eeeekkk!!! I can’t believe that it is almost time for Halloween!! This is the first year that the girls are really big enough to enjoy all the festivities of the season and go trick or treating and make a ton of fun treats. Since we are now homeschooling, we have decided to start doing more home economics type of things (did you know most teens can not even boil an egg?!) and these brownies are super easy, that even older kids can help to make them! This is one of our favorite treats to make during the holidays and it is, even more fun to eat.
My Halloween Cauldron Brownies are super fun to make, and kids can help out from the beginning. These are great for parties, after school get-togethers, school parties, and so much more. You could also add different color frostings, add in Halloween themed sprinkles and even recreate bubbles to make this even more festive.

2 egg whites
1 Cup powder sugar
