1 10.25-ounce pouch fudge brownie mix
1 cup Craisins’ Sweetened Dried Cranberries
2 cups white chocolate chips or morsels, melted
Tubes of decorative writing gel: green, red, black
1. Prepare brownies according to package directions. Bake for 24-28 minutes in an 8-inch pan, or 18 to 22 minutes in a 9-inch pan, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not overbake. Trim crisp edges from the brownie while warm; eat or discard. Crumble remaining warm brownie into a medium mixing bowl.
2. Combine cranberries and warm crumbled brownie until a thick dough-like mixture forms. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, pressing firmly. Dip balls in melted chocolate, letting excess drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is firm.
3. To create eyeball decorations, use red gel to make veins, green gel for center of eyes and black for the pupil.
