For these Halloween treats, make a big pan or chocolate brownies and then cut them into spooky cat shapes.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon miniature semisweet chocolate pieces


  1. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Grease the foil; set pan aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the flour, the 3/4 cup cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar and melted butter. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cover and chill 3 to 24 hours.
