Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/3 cups chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Red-hot candies

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in syrup and vanilla. Add flour and salt; mix well. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.
For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar alternately with milk until frosting reaches desired consistency. Remove and set aside 1/3 cup frosting. Beat chocolate and vanilla into remaining frosting. Frost brownies.
Using a fork, make marks in the frosting to resemble hair. Cut brownies into 18 bars. Using tip #2, pipe reserved frosting for eyes and teeth. Add red-hot candies for eyes and decorate with remaining frosting as desired to finish faces. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
