Vampire Bite Brownies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 28
  • 1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients to make the mix
  • 1 small can cherry pie filling
  • 16-oz can prepared white frosting (not "whipped" variety"
  • 2 cups vampire teeth gummies
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Spray several mini muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to fill the mini muffin pans with the brownie mix, filling each cavity about ⅔ full. You should get about 28-30 brownies from this recipe.
  3. Bake the brownies for 15-20 minutes, until they are shiny and puffed on top, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached.
  4. Remove from the oven, and let cool for one minute. While they are still quite warm, carefully use your fingers to press down into the center of each brownie to form a well. Let the brownies cool completely.
  5. Once cool, run a small metal spatula or knife around the outside of the brownies, and pop them out of the pan. If you have trouble, you can try chilling the pans briefly to make the brownies firmer and sturdier.
  6. Blend the cherries briefly using a blender or stick blender, until they are in small chunks and have a jammy consistency. Place a spoonful of blended cherries into the center of each brownie.
  7. Remove the lid and foil wrapper from the white frosting, and place it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir well, then microwave for an additional 10-15 seconds, until it flows freely from a spoon.
  8. Use a spoon to pour a small amount of frosting on top of each brownie, spreading it to the edges so it covers the cherry jam completely.
  9. Refrigerate the tray of brownies briefly, to set the frosting on top. It doesn't need to be hard, but it should have some body and not be soft and sticky to the touch. Once the frosting is set, top each brownie bite with the vampire teeth gummies. Use a toothpick to dab a little bit of cherry puree on the tip of each fang to resemble dripping blood.
If you don't want to use the cherry pie filling, you can substitute 1½ cups of any red jam instead.
