Turning a chocolate cake into little ghouly ghosts

Dani Dunstan decided to use our healthy Chocolate recipe but turned them into bite-sized ghosts.

Dani Dunstan Chocolate Zucchini Ghosts healthy mummy halloween

Chocolate Zucchini Ghosts

140 cals per serve.

Makes 24 – 30.

  • I used everything as per The Healthy Mummy Chocolate recipe  as if I was making a whole cake except I used 1/4 cup of Cacao instead of Cocoa.
  • I put the batter into cupcake tins and cooked for 20 mins on 180° until just cooked (checking with a skewer or knife).
  • I let the tin cool then took the cupcakes out, cut them how I wanted and used the chocolate icing to hold their new form and put into the freezer for 30 mins so I could work on getting the white frosting perfect.
  • I used cacao nibs for the ghosts eyes

For the white Frosting I used the following;

Frosting

  • Half a cup of coconut milk
  • 1tbs and 1tsp water
  • 1tbsp powdered sugar

Something sweet with eight (actually six) legs

Snakes and worms and witches hat decorations ingredients

  • One packet of Aeroplane Jellylite low sugar jelly, I’ve used strawberry flavour
  • 3/4 cup Greek yoghurt

Method

  1. Dissolve the jelly crystals in one cup of boiling water and let cool
  2. Add the Greek yoghurt and whisk until smooth
  3. Grab a handful of straws (around 8) and using an elastic band bunch them together and place in a cup. Pour the mix into the straws until the cup is at least half full and let stand.
  4. Grab another bunch of straws fastened with an elastic band and put in a different cup. Add black food colouring to the jelly and yoghurt mix and stir through. Pour the black mix through the straws again until the cup is at least half full and then place both lots into the fridge to set, around 4hrs
  5. Pour remaining mixture into with the witches hat silicon moulds, or moulds of your choice and place in the fridge to set, around 4hrs
  6. To remove the snakes and worms from the straws, pinch and squeeze the straw then run down the length of it to the end, it’ll squeeze out like toothpaste from a tube. Then decorate your cauldrons with the snakes and worms and add the witches hats to your platter
