Method

  1. Make sure eggs are at room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 160ºC.
  3. Line a square tin with parchment paper.
  4. Melt the chocolate and butter gently in a bain-marie.
  5. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (minus the walnuts), then add in the chocolate-butter mix. Stir together.
  6. Lightly whip the eggs in a small bowl then add them to the chocolate mix. Beat lightly until silky.
  7. Add the finished mix into the tin and bake for 30 minutes (if you have time for it to set overnight) or 40 minutes (if you need it in good shape the same day).
  8. Leave the brownie to cool, then cut into squares.

How to decorate Halloween brownies with Spider Mummies

  1. Mix 10 heaped unrefined Tbsp icing sugar (sieved) with 2 tsp of cold water and mix in. Then add drip by drip until you get a thick but spreadable paste.
  2. Stick a giant chocolate button into the middle of each brownie piece using a little icing.
  3. Cover the top of each chocolate button with the icing and sprinkle with the sugar strands, pressing them in gently to help them stick.
  4. Now, make up a similar amount again of the white icing for the eyes and pipe onto each spider (using the small circle nozzle), putting the eyes at the front of the body. This icing doesn’t need to be as thick, but you still want it to hold it’s shape.
  5. Add black food colouring to the remaining white icing and pipe (using another small round nozzle) the spider legs.
  6. Finish using the black icing on the dots of the spiders eyes.
  7. All thats left if to dress the spiders as mummies – add the thicker unrefined icing into a piping bag with the small curved nozzle.
  8. Now criss-cross the bandages back and forth over the spider bodies.
