Recipe type: Brownies & Bars
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • *for the pumpkin bars*
  • 1 box Libby's pumpkin bread mix
  • oil, water, and eggs called for on box
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • *for the frosting*
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk or cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • candy eyeballs, for decorating
Instructions
  1. First, prepare the pumpkin bars. Preheat oven to 350F. Line two 9x13 baking pans with parchment.
  2. Mix pumpkin bread according to package directions, and stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the batter evenly between the two baking pans, and cook for 30-35 min, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Let cool completely.
  5. When ready to assemble, make the frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter until creamy. Add in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, followed by the milk or cream. Stir in the salt and vanilla. Scoop into a pastry bag fitted with a flat decorating tip.
  6. Cut out as many mummies as you can out of your pumpkin bars with a gingerbread man cutter. Save the scraps for another recipe.
  7. Grab your candy eyeballs, squeeze a small bit of frosting on the back of each, and place on all your mummies. Decorate as desired with the frosting.
  8. Serve immediately, or store at room temp. Enjoy!
