1 tablespoon freeze dried coffee granules
1 tablespoon boiling water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350F. Line 8x8x2-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving 1-1/2-inch overhang on two sides. Lightly grease foil; set pan aside. In small saucepan combine chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter over low heat; stir constantly until completely melted. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. In small bowl combine coffee granules and water; set aside. In large bowl beat 1/4 cup butter, sugar and eggs; stir in chocolate mixture and coffee until well blended.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack. Lift brownies out of pan using foil. Cut into Halloween shapes using 3-inch cookie cutters. Tint frosting desired colors. Spread frosting over each brownie shape. Decorate with remaining 1/2 cup "M&M's" Chocolate Mini Baking Bits. Store in tightly covered container.
