Spooky Glutafin Graveyard

 

A delicious gooey, chocolate dessert which is guaranteed to be a hit at any party!

Ingredients

Brownie

110g Glutafin Gluten free Multipurpose White Mix

4 medium eggs

150g caster sugar

250g butter

1x 397g can of condensed milk

200g 70% cocoa dark chocolate

25g cocoa powder

1 tsp gluten free baking powder

75g ground almonds

50g flaked almonds

Icing

50g 70% cocoa dark chocolate (melted)

100g butter

200g icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Decoration

100g white chocolate

Greaseproof paper

Piping bag

Printed Halloween template (i.e. ghost)

2 flakes (or grated chocolate)

Glutafin Gluten Free Shortcrust pastry

25g milk chocolate

1 wooden skewer/cocktail stick

 

Method

Brownie

  1. Preheat oven to 170C/150C Fan or Gas Mark 3

  2. Line a 22cm x 32cm shallow ovenproof baking tray with baking parchment

  3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, when melted leave for 2 minutes and then stir well

  4. Whisk the eggs and sugar together (using an electric mixer if you have one) for a full 3 minutes until pale, thickened and full of bubbles

  5. Add remaining ingredients and whisk briefly until combined

  6. Spoon the brownie mixture into the prepared tin and bake in a preheated oven for around 35 minutes, until the bake loses its glossy appearance and starts to crack on the surface. The ultimate brownie should be crumbly on the outside but moist on the inside.

  7. Leave to cool

     

Toppings

  1. Whilst the cake is cooling, whisk the icing ingredients together until smooth and creamy in texture

  2. Melt the white chocolate and place into a piping bag. Lay the greaseproof paper over the Halloween designs and trace onto the greaseproof paper with white chocolate before placing in the fridge for around an hour (until set)

  3. Make the Glutafin Gluten Free Select Shortcrust pastry and use a cookie cutter to make 3 circles or squares. Bake for 15 minutes and allow to cool (alternatively use Glutafin Gluten Free shortbread biscuits). Once cool, cut in half

  4. Melt the milk chocolate and using the cocktail stick, write on the biscuits with Halloween slogans before placing in the fridge to set

     

Building the Graveyard

  1. Cover the brownie in chocolate icing before sprinkling the flake/grated chocolate and ½ a biscuit over to create a dirt/stone effect

  2. Place the white chocolate shapes and biscuit gravestones upright in the brownie
