Brownie Coffins


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar (add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup if you like it sweet)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
Melted white chocolate, to decorate
candy pen and sprinkles, to decorate


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the Coffin Cake Pan with baking spray.
Step 2: Melt 1/2 cup butter in a microwave safe bowl. In a large mixing bowl mix together the melted butter and sugar. When smooth, add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
Step 3: Beat in the dark chocolate cocoa powder. When smooth, beat in flour, salt, and baking powder.
Step 4: Fill the coffins about 2/3 of the way with the brownie batter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes (22 minutes worked for me).
Step 5: When the brownies have cooled, decorate as you like.


It’s almost Halloween, my favorite holiday! This year my hubby got me a Coffin Cake Pan, so I decided to make Brownie Coffins. You can follow my recipe below or use any other brownie or cake mix to make coffin cakes. The coffin pan can be purchased through my website
