Halloween is Creeping Up On You!

Halloween is only 10 days away! That means you don't have much time left to scare up those fall decorations and work your magic with the kids' costumes, and what about snack time?

Grab yourself some Pringles (they've got Pringles Grab & Go, Pringles Snack Stacks and Pringles Sticks for fast portable snacking), and if you haven't had a chance until now, be sure to try some of their eerily familiar flavors--how do they make potato chips taste like pizza and dill pickles?!

And if you've got a little more time on your hands, you can always whip up something a little more substantial, like these fun salty-sweet Halloween treats (no tricks, promise!).

Pringles Ghoulish Brownies

6 ounces baking chocolate, unsweetened
3/4 cup unsalted butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1-6.41 ounce can of Pringles Original or 1-5.71 ounce can of Reduced Fat Pringles Original
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Orange and black frosting (optional)
Edible decorations, such as sprinkles and candy corn (optional)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F
2.  Line 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, and spray foil with cooking spray.
3.  In a glass bowl, microwave chocolate & butter on high for 2 minutes.Stir until chocolate melts. 
4.  In a stainless steel bowl, mix sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well mixed. 
5.  Pour in butter chocolate mixture and mix well.
6.  Empty Pringles and flour into a food processor, and puree until very fine. 
7.  Empty flour mixture into chocolate mixture and mix well; add nuts to distribute.   
8.  Bake for 30 minutes, and cool.

1.  Before pouring Pringles into food processer, reserve 3-5 crisps and set aside.
2.  While brownies cool, gently break Pringles crisps in half and decorate with frosting gel.
3.  Top brownies and frosting and place crisp “gravestones” in brownies along with other edible                       
          decorations to create a fun and playful graveyard scene.
