I am not one of Those Creative-Type Mothers and no matter how hard I try, I will never BE one of Those Mothers. But, it’s Halloween and I’m supposed to make crafts and create Halloween type treats with my children. So, today I attempted to make these graveyard brownies I saw a Picky-Palate with my daughter.
Usually, when I attempt these type of things, it doesn’t end well. There are usually tears, sometimes injuries, thoughts of divorce, threats to run away, etc…I’m happy to report that none of those things happened today.

Helping is fun, but man, that chocolate sure looks good. I think I’d much rather be eating chocolate than making these brownies.
Oh, look! A chocolate chip!
Aaaand, she’s out. Thanks for the “help”, G!
The thing that I was the most worried about was getting the brownies out of the pan in one piece. Turns out, spraying the crap out of the pan with Crisco flour non stick spray works!
I wasn’t sure how I was going to write “RIP” on the cookies. Turns out, I’m kind of a genius.
The end result? Definitely not as awesome as the the ones pictures in the recipe, but not as bad (ugly?) as I expected.
