Mummy Brownies

How festive would you say these spooky mummy brownies are? And what if I told you, they are not only allergen friendly but easy to make? Undoubtedly these mummy brownies are a definite win-win for everyone.

Brownies cut into rectangles, with white frosting zig zagging across them and big eyes to look like a mummy.

My kids squealed with delight when they saw these decorated. Well, that’s after I explained what a mummy was. Our family isn’t into much of the spooky Halloween happenings. But I couldn’t resist these festive brownies. And I must confess this recipe was inspired by a similar mummy brownie recipe I found here. However that recipe isn’t gluten and dairy free. And I particularly wanted my family and yours to enjoy these fun treats. They’re just too festive not to make and eat.

Besides who can turn down gluten and dairy free brownies? For one thing my family can’t… they go crazy over them. Secondly the King Arthur box mix is so delicious you can easily serve these to those who can and can’t eat gluten and dairy. They won’t even guess it’s “free from.”

So let’s grab the ingredients and get baking! These will be perfect for your fall festival or Halloween party.

mummy brownie ingredients:

  • brownie mix — we enjoy the 9 x 9 King Arthur brownie mix best. Keep in mind you’ll need ingredients to bake the brownies (usually eggs, oil, and water). If you need several of these mummy brownies I wouldn’t suggest doubling this brownie mix for a 13 x 9. Instead I would bake 2 separate batches in a 9 x 9 pan. You’ll get more spooky mummies that way.
  • white frosting — Pillsbury Fluffy Frost Vanilla Marshmallow. This brand specifically states it is gluten free and the only allergen it contains is soybeans. However, if you’re concerned with cross contamination please substitute it for homemade vanilla frosting.
  • candy eyes treat toppers — I found mine on Amazon here. This Festival brand has an excellent allergen statement you can read here.
  • Wilton petal decorating tip #102
  • either a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off or one of these disposable Wilton cake decorating bags here.
These are so fall festive!
