Happy Halloween! I hope you’re fitting in time for costumed festivities this year – Halloween is a great time to get creative, whether you’re a woman with children, or a child-at-heart woman. I procrastinated making my costume choice (finally settling on Sookie Stackhouse, the telekinetic heroine of HBO’s vampire drama True Blood) and am still finishing up last minute touches.

For party snacks, I decided to make these super-cute brownie bites that I found on Weight Watchers’ website. They’re easy to make (under 30 minutes), cute enough to impress, and light enough to eat – without overdoing it.

Fit tip: Dance a few extra rounds of “Thriller” and practice walking like a zombie to burn off any excess candy calories. Read more for the recipe:

21 oz regular brownies, dry mix

1/2 cup(s) water

1/2 cup(s) unsweetened applesauce

2 large egg white(s), lightly beaten

1 1/2 cup(s) lite whipped topping

1 1/4 oz candy corn, about 24 pieces

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 24 mini muffin tin holes with mini cupcake wrappers.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine brownie mix, water, applesauce and egg whites. Mix 50 times with a wooden spoon (use 50 strokes); do not under mix. Pour brownie mixture into prepared muffin tins.
  • Bake cupcakes until a tester inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely; remove cupcakes from pan. Before serving, decorate each cooled cupcake with a tablespoon dollop of whipped topping and 1 piece of candy corn.
