Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I would throw in a few Halloween inspired baked goods over the next week or so. These brownies are so cute all decked out in colored chocolate moulded into skeleton parts. I picked up the chocolate mould at Michael’s way back in August! I used orange melting chocolate to make the skeletons, but you could use any color you wish. The brownie is a really rich chocolately treat, with chocolate buttercream icing and chocolate cookie crumbs on top. This would make a great treat to make for the kids Halloween parties.
For this recipe the measurements are actually done by weight rather than volume.
Begin by melting 250 grams dark chocolate and 170 grams butter over double boiler. When fully melted and blended remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.
Fold in the melted chocolate/butter mixture until combined
Sift 1 gram (1/4 tsp) baking powder and 170 grams all purpose flour, and add to the chocolate mixture, folding in to combine. Being careful not to overmix.
Pour into a 9″ baking pan line with parchment and bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Lift out of pan and peel parchment away from brownies. Ice with chocolate buttercream frosting.
Cut into bars and decorate with chocolate skeleton pieces
