After you have eaten sausages wrapped in puff pastry to resemble mummies, olives dressed up to look like spiders and carved yourself a puking pumpkin you may well need a little sugar boost. Those going trick or treating will have no need of these snacks but the adults shivering behind them may well do! Not overly scary or realistic, simply fun and speedy to make. Enjoy.

How to …

  1. In a mixing bowl, using the end of a rolling pin, crush the biscuits into crumbs. You could use the fill a plastic bag and whack with a wooden spoon method if you want. You could use a food processor but that takes all the fun out of it.
  2. In a large saucepan melt the butter, cocoa and syrup together to make a sauce.
  3. Pour the chocolate sauce onto the biscuit crumbs and combine thoroughly.
  4. Tip the chocolaty rubble into a buttered or cling film lined 6″ square tin and press down. Put into the fridge to set.
  5. Take the toothpick and dip into the black food colouring. Mark a small dot of black onto each marshmallow.
  6. Once set melt the chocolate and pour over the biscuit base. Place pairs of marshmallows onto the molten chocolate to resemble monster eyes. Refrigerate once more until the chocolate is set. Cut into 16 squares and serve. This is best served from the fridge as it is only the cold that holds it together.
