Oh Mummies! Scary Rice Krispie Cakes. One of my favourite treats as a child was when my mum made a tray of sticky marshmallow rice krispie cake. However, I’m not really a cake or sweet guy but I swear I could eat the whole thing.
Ghastly Ghosties and Scary Halloween Double Chocolate Cupcakes. Do you celebrate Halloween? Yes! Well, when I was little, we celebrated Bonfire night. Maybe a few naughty children in the village threw eggs or played other pranks on Mischief Night. However, no one really celebrated Halloween. Now it is big business with costumes, pumpkin lanterns, and trick or treating for sweets and chocolates. And I have to say I love it.
These Halloween cookies are sandwiched together with simple whipped vanilla buttercream and I use soft mini marshmallows for the teeth.
Condensed milk was a popular ingredient used as a substitute for sugar and milk and even (?) drank in tea. I have cheated slightly in this recipe and used fresh eggs and butter. The original would have been made with powdered egg and margarine.
