Halloween Brownies.



 Happy Halloween!

For Halloween this year for work I made After Eight brownies and Terry's Chocolate Orange brownies.

To make the After Eight brownies you will need:
250g Butter
100g Milk Chocolate
100g Dark Chocolate
360g Caster Sugar
80g Cocoa Powder
65g Plain Flour
4 Eggs
half a teaspoon Baking Powder

For the icing:
Green food colouring
100g Butter
200g Icing Sugar
2 packets After Eights

To make the Terry's Chocolate Orange brownies you will need:
250g Butter
100g Terry's Chocolate Orange
100g Lindt dark chocolate orange
360g Caster Sugar
80g Cocoa Powder
65g Plain Flour
4 Eggs
half a teaspoon Baking Powder

For the icing:
Orange food colouring
100g Butter
200g Icing Sugar
Terry's Chocolate Orange


To make the brownies first line the tin, (this I found out is crucial!) I used a 9x9 tin. And preheat the oven to 180.

In a bain marie melt the butter and the chocolate together. While this is melting weigh out your dry ingredients.

Once all the butter and chocolate has melted mix the dry ingredients in until combined allow to cool slightly and then add in the four eggs and mix well.

If you are making the After Eight brownies add half the mixture to the tin, then cover the batter with two layers of After Eights. Then pour over the rest of the mixture.

If you are making the Terry's Chocolate Orange brownies just add in all the mixture.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes.


Once cooked take out of the oven and leave to cool completely before attempting to remove them from the tin!

Then make the icing by creaming the butter, sugar and food coloring together. Spread a thin layer onto the brownies and place in the fridge for ten minutes and then spread the rest of the icing onto the brownies. Then add either a segment of Terry's or half an After Eight depending on the brownie flavour.

Then slice into pieces. Clean the knife in between each slice to keep the icing crumb free!

Enjoy these with a coffee or any drink as they are so rich!!!
