Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Spray a mini cupcake pan with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Melt the wet ingredients together: Add the butter and sugar to saucepot over medium heat. Melt the butter and stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vanilla extract, then remove from heat to cool slightly.
Add the dry ingredients: Whisk the eggs into the butter and sugar mixture, then sift in the cocoa powder and stir until combined fully.
Bake the brownies: Spoon the brownie batter into the prepared mini cupcake pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the edges of the brownies have set. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Assemble the candy eyeballs: Mix powdered sugar with just enough water to form a paste in a small bowl. Use it as the glue and dot a small amount in the middle of the brownie bite and fasten the candy eyeballs on. Let the icing harden before serving.
Make sure the butter is cooled enough before adding the egg mixture as hot butter can cause the eggs to cook in the mixture.
Let the mini brownie bites cool completely before adding the powdered sugar glue and candy eyeballs to prevent the “glue” from melting.
You can use mini muffin liners to make these brownies portable and easy to remove from the pan.
