HONEY SALT SPOOKY BROWNIES
Make instagram worthy ghoulish treats for Halloween this fall with this spooky brownie recipe courtesy of Honey Salt Vancouver’s talented pastry chef.
1/2 cup (125 mL) butter
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) white sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) real vanilla extract
1/3 cup (80 mL) cocoa powder
1/2 cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp (1 mL) baking powder
1/4 tsp (1 mL) kosher salt
3 tbsp (45 mL) butter, softened
1 tbsp (15 mL) vanilla extract
1 cup (250 mL) confectioners sugar
Food colouring in hues of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a tray and lightly dust it with flour. In large saucepan, melt the butter. Turn off the flame and add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Slowly mix in the cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt.
Pour into sheet tray and bake for 25 minutes. Check on the brownies at 22 minutes to ensure you don’t overcook them. Once the brownies are fully baked, remove them from the oven and set them aside to let them cool a bit.
To make the frosting, mix the butter, vanilla extract and confectioners’ sugar together. Separate the frosting in separate bowls and add food coloring of your choice to each. Mix well and add each colour to its own piping bag.
Makes 24 brownies.
