Pipe a squiggle line down the left side of the brownie to resemble a book "spine." Then, pipe figure-8s in each corner on the right to look like snakes and pipe two rows of stitches in the center of the brownie. This is a perfect and delicious Halloween treat on its own, or it can be paired with a movie night.
