Freaky Brownies


<strong>For the brownies:</strong>
5oz. butter
4oz. cocoa
9oz. sugar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
2.5oz. all-purpose flour
<strong>For the decorations: </strong>
White cake decorating frosting
Candy corn
Gum drops


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C
  • Generously butter one large muffin tin and then dust each cup with cocoa powder
  • In a saucepan on a very low heat combine the butter, cocoa, sugar and salt until the solids have dissolved and the liquid has melted
  • Allow the liquid to cool and add the eggs one at a time, and then the vanilla extract
  • Stir the mixture well, until everything is smooth than stir in the flour, and then continue stirring for a full minute until everything is quite smooth
  • Spoon the recipe into the muffin tins until they are a quarter full
  • Bake the brownies
  • This is the tricky part....
  • Start checking after 12 minutes, you want a toothpick inserted on the center to come out with a little bit of batter stuck to it
  • If you have too much batter and it is undercooked and too little, and the brownies will be dry
  • When the brownies are done, remove from the oven and cool completely
  • <strong>For the frosting:</strong>
  • Lay out your decorations, and create your creatures
  • Use the frosting as glue and make faces with the candy.
Cooks Note

You can even create a tombstone like effect if you wish using slabs of chocolate and an icing bag
