Hiya! Today’s blog post is a bit more halloweeny because Halloween is soon approaching which is super exciting! I thought I’d mix my favourite snack, brownies, with Halloween so here is a recipe for spooky brownies haha!!
– two cups of plain flour (can exchange for gluten free flour if needed)
– two cups of sugar
– 3/4 cup of cocoa powder (I used a hot chocolate powder in this recipe because I ran out of normal powder)
– 1 cup of non dairy milk (I used almond, and I added a little bit more after stirring a lil bit)
– 1 tsp of salt
– Preheat oven to gas mark 6 or 200 degrees Celsius and lightly butter pans. I sadly only had circle pans for this but that’s fine!
– Get a big mixing bowl and add all of the dry ingredients and mix all those together. You don’t have to do this but I like to because it makes it easier to mix once you add in the milk, in my opinion anyway.
– Once mixed, add in the milk. I used ASDA’s own brand sweetened almond milk because this was the only one I had in the house and I was quite frankily, too lazy to walk to my local shop to buy unsweetened. Just to add, my nearest shop is probably a 30/45 minute walk from my house and ALL uphill so there was no chance hahaha.
– After this, I equally placed the mixture into two small circular pans and popped them in the oven for 27 minutes. Depending on your oven, this may take longer or shorter so just keep checking on them!
– I left them to cool for about an hour until I popped them out of the pans. I did this because last time I made these brownies, I become impatient and tried to take them out quickly and well, you can imagine how that turned out.
– Once they were cool, I took them out of the pans and lay them flat on the board.
– I used these Halloween cookie cutters to cut them into random spooky shapes, such as a cat, a tombstone, a ghost etc.
– I then sprinkled them with icing sugar and done!!!
Let me know if you’ve tried these brownies before. I used a recipe I found on the internet the first time I made these but they added a lot of oil which I thought was unnecessary so I’ve adapted the recipe ever so slightly!
Here’s a throwback?! This is a post I did roughly a year ago to this day. Click here.
Hope you enjoyed making these brownies or reading about me making them and have a lovely Halloween,
