Turning a chocolate cake into little ghouly ghosts
Dani Dunstan decided to use our healthy Chocolate recipe but turned them into bite-sized ghosts.
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;
Half a cup of coconut milk
1tbs and 1tsp water
1tbsp powdered sugar
Something sweet with eight (actually six) legs
Healthy Mummy Sue Hixson sent through this sweet snack with a few extra additions.
Roasted Almond Chocolate Spiders
89cal/serve Makes 14 serves
50g unsalted raw almonds
90g rolled oats
2 tbsp cocoa
1tbsp coconut oil
Roast almonds till brown.
In a food processor blitz almonds and oats to a fine mixture (not powder).
Add cocoa, sultanas, coconut oil and blitz again well. Add water as needed to make into rollable consistency.
Roll into 14 balls
Break pretzels into leg shapes and add to make spiders.
(Yes… spiders do have eight legs but six fitted nicely and eight were too squishy)
Bubble, bubble toil and trouble in this witches brew
Jinjamrda McGonigal has brought out the inner witch in all of us with her healthy witches brew full of green gooey goodness and yummy treats.
Gooey Halloween Witches Brew
Slimy green popcorn with worms and snakes bubbling in the cauldron awaiting the Witches Halloween party!
Slimy popcorn ingredients
1/4 cup popcorn kernels air popped
1tbsp rice malt syrup
1/2 cup of sugar-free marshmallows
Yellow, green and black food colouring
Pop the corn kernels and set aside
In a microwave safe bowl add the butter, rice malt syrup and marshmallows and heat for 20 seconds. Stir and heat further in 10-second increments if necessary until all melted
Stir until smooth
Add the three food colourings until desired colour is achieved
Add the marshmallow mix to the popcorn and stir through until all coated, it will be really sticky!
Place into the cauldrons to serve and chill while organising the decorations
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
Dissolve the jelly crystals in one cup of boiling water and let cool
Add the Greek yoghurt and whisk until smooth
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.
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
Pour remaining mixture into with the witches hat silicon moulds, or moulds of your choice and place in the fridge to set, around 4hrs
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
