Kitty Cat Brownies are the “purr-fect” treat for a child’s birthday party, and decorating the cat can be a “purr-fectly” fun activity for party-goers.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ fudge brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy dark chocolate, chocolate or milk chocolate frosting
2
large yellow gumdrops
1
large green gumdrop
1
small black gumdrop
Black shoestring licorice
6
candy corn

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 (8-inch or 9-inch) round cake pans with foil; grease bottoms only with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2 Make brownie batter as directed on box. Divide batter evenly between pans.
  • 3 Bake 24 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely.
  • 4 Lift foil and brownie from pan; carefully remove foil. Cut 1 round as shown in diagram. Arrange uncut round and the pieces, top sides down, on large tray or foil-covered cardboard, 18x12 inches, to form cat. Frost cat, attaching pieces with small amount of frosting.
  • 5 Cut thin slice from bottom of each yellow gumdrop; use slices for eyes. Cut thin slice from green gumdrop; use to make pupils. Use black gumdrop for nose and shoestring licorice for whiskers, mouth and from paws. Attach 3 candy corn on each paw for claws. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

A parent or older sibling may have to cut the pieces, but even the youngest family member can help add the whiskers and the candy-corn feet.

Can’t find black shoestring licorice or candy corn? Use Betty Crocker black decorating gel for the licorice; look for it near the cake and frosting items in your grocery store. For the claws, cut strips of Fruit Roll-Ups® chewy fruit snack rolls.

Don’t be afraid. It’s easy to turn this kitty cat into the scariest Halloween cat on the block!
