Ghoulish recipes for Halloween
Makes 15 cupcakes
175g self-raising flour
150g granulated sugar
50g cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
150ml vegetable or sunflower oil
100g dark chocolate
White fondant icing
Microwavable mixing bowl
Cupcake/muffin tray lined with cases
Round cutter or tumbler
Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan).
In the mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda with the whisk before adding in the oil, milk and eggs. Whisk until a smooth batter is achieved.
Divide the batter evenly between 15 cupcake/muffin cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until risen and springy to touch. Allow to cool completely.
Wash the original mixing bowl and use it to melt the dark chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments (being careful not to burn it). Dip the base of each marshmallow in the melted chocolate and affix one on top of each cupcake. Pop in the fridge/freezer for a few minutes to set.
Roll out the fondant and cut out rounds (approx. 10cm). Drape the rounds over the marshmallows on top of the cupcakes to form ghost shapes.
Dip one end of the toothpick in the melted chocolate and use to dot two eyes on each ghost and enjoy!
