White Chocolate Skeletons in Chocolate Walnut Brownies Grave

How’s your willpower?

Mine seriously sucks.

I just finished the rest of the white chocolate skeletons pieces which did not make into the top of the brownies…

Simply because…there are no more brownies to put them to.

We finished the whole batch right before the sunset this afternoon.

Good heavens. Send help. And remind me not to bake anymore chocolate walnut brownies..

And if I do, please remind me not to put adorable {and yummy!} white chocolate skeletons on top.

It’s monday. I know I shouldn’t be thrusting Chocolate on chocolate on your face….

But it’s seems like the only thing I could do.

These wonderful brownies marks the end of my halloween recipes for 2012.

Spooky, cute, morbid, creepy and delicious will resume next year.

Same time. Same place.

I hope you’re looking forward to some fall recipes in November…

Just in case you’re wondering, I bought that Skeleton mold last year but I wasn’t able to use it… so I made sure I did today.

I also think that these brownies make for a nice giveaway. Just put one in a microwaveable/plastic container and give to someone you adore.

Use a ready made mix if you are busy. Usually if I am, I use Pillsbury Chocolate Brownie Mix . But if you’re in the mood to make it from scratch, then here’s a delicious recipe to follow.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 4 egg
  • 2 tbsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 6 heaping tbsp of Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup of walnuts, chopped coarsely
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips {I Used Goya white choco buttons because I so love the taste}
  • ½ cup chocolate chips + 1 tbsp cream/milk
Directions
  1. Make the skeleton by melting the white chocolate buttons in the microwave inside the piping bag. Make sure you do 10-second intervals just so you don’t burn the piping bag.
  2. Put melted chocolate in the mold. Refrigerate for half an hour the give the mold a slight twist to get the skeletons. Set aside.
  3. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Beat with the mixer for about a minute, then add the cocoa powder and the flour gradually until everything is incorporated in the mixture.
  5. Add walnuts. You can mix this manually to make sure walnut is distributed throughout the brownie.
  6. Grease your pan before putting brownie mixture.
  7. Bake at 180° C for 25-30 minutes.
  8. To make sure it’s done, take a toothpick and slowly insert it through the middle. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go. If not, pop it back in for another couple of minutes till it does.
  9. Let brownies cool into room temperature.
  10. Make a chocolate ganache by melting chocolate chips with cream mixture.
  11. Cut brownies into rectangles setiing aside one fro crumbling.
  12. Spread chocolate ganache on top to make the white chocolate skeleton stick.
  13. Sprinkle with crumbled brownies to make it look like it’s a grave and there’s soil and dirt all over.
