  • Small check mark in a circle icon Butter and eggs called for on the brownie mix box
To decorate
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 20 wafer thin dark chocolate digestive biscuits, cut in half with a serrated knife
  • Small check mark in a circle icon Small tube black writing frosting
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 40 small edible sugar frosting eyeballs

Betty's Easy Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan-forced oven). Lightly grease a 20cm square shallow cake pan and line the base and sides with baking paper.
  2. Remove the enclosed frosting sachet if using the Frosted Chocolate Brownie Mix and reserve for another use. Make and bake the brownie mix as directed on the box. Transfer to a cooling rack and leave to cool completely in the tin.
  3. Lift the brownie from the tin using the baking paper. Stamp out 20 rounds using a 4cm round cookie cutter.
  4. Push 1 biscuit half into each side of the brownie rounds to form wings. Using the writing frosting, attach 2 sugar frosting eyeballs to each brownie. Press 2 heart shaped sprinkles into each brownie (pointed-side out) to resemble fangs.

Betty's Tips

  • Chocolate crème-filled sandwich cookies (with the crème filling removed) can be used in place of the wafer thin chocolate digestives.
  • After stamping out the cookie rounds, save the leftover bits of brownie for snacking or for crumbling over ice cream.
  • If you can't find the heart shaped sprinkles, try using red writing frosting for the fangs.
