  • 1 boxed brownie mix prepared per box directions
  • 2 Tbsp frosting in black
  • 1/4 cup frosting in orange or red
  • 24 Wilton candy eyes


  • Cut out the brownies with a cookie cutter, using a knife to assist you if needed.
  • Add dots of black frosting/ icing for the eyes (see picture #1).
  • Make sure to add the candy eyes before the frosting sets (see picture #2).
  • Use the orange or red frosting to add a mouth and any other embellishments you would like to add.


NOTE: Although your cute feline friends may be tempted to eat their brownie counterparts, cats should not eat brownies because even a small amount of chocolate can poison cats.
