Whether your Halloween plans sync up with book club or you're celebrating the holiday with a low-key girls' night in, there are two crucial things your menu absolutely needs: booze and brownies. A simple, make-ahead menu brings the dark arts to your gathering with a fruity red wine sangria and a batch of decadent molten chocolate brownies. Here's how to make it happen.

A Halloween Menu for Girls' Night In

When a girls' night in is in order, you can't go wrong with something festive and something boozy. This simple menu checks off both boxes. Start the night off with a sweet berry- and plum-filled sangria and pair it with a batch of ultra-dark brownies.

The Drink: Black Magic Sangria

This deep, dark red wine sangria is spiked with brandy and blackcurrant liqueur and, like all sangria, is quick and easy to pull together. Start with a full-bodied red wine that's dark and inky in color, like Shiraz or Malbec, then keep the black magic brewing by loading it up with blackberries, black grapes, and black plums.

The Sweet Treat: Molten Midnight Brownies

There are truly no better brownies for your Halloween-themed night in than this strikingly rich version. They are as dark and decadent as they come; insanely moist, rich, and chewy; and speckled with chunks of melty chocolate that pool into hot puddles as they bake.
