Are you having a Halloween party this year? If so, you should make these wormy dark chocolate brownies. They are super easy to make and the perfect addition to any Halloween themed party. With the crumbled brownies and gummy worms on top, they almost remind me of those worms in dirt pudding cups. Do you remember those? There used to be a restaurant near my house that had those on the kids menu. I used to love going to that restaurant just so I could order the worms in dirt for dessert. The gummy worms were the best part 🙂 I should really recreate that recipe sometime because now I am really craving one of those worms in dirt pudding cups.
I have a bunch of other fun Halloween themed recipes coming up soon. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and it is so much fun to create these fun and spooky recipes to share with everyone. Now I just need to find a Halloween party to attend. Any ideas? I will bring the desserts.
- 8 oz semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup plain low-fat yogurt
- ¼ cup canola oil
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 20 gummy worms for decoration
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking pan and set aside.
- Melt chocolate and butter in a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water. Make sure to stir occasionally as the chocolate is melting.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until well combined. Add the yogurt, oil and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the melted chocolate and mix until fully incorporated. Finally add the flour mixture and mix until smooth and combined.
- Transfer the mixture to prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the pan to cool completely on a cooling rack.
- Once cooled, cut into 24 brownies. Crumble 4 brownies to use as garnish. Serve remaining brownies with crumbles and gummy worms on top.
