And now for something completely different on MollyMoo! I’m not so hot in the kitchen department which is why you don’t see many edible things here!  – can’t be masters of everything right!!! ahem

Anyhoo I was sent this yummy Halloween Chocolate Biscuit Recipe by Love Irish Food earlier today and thought it looked SO good I would share it here on MollyMoo and make with Miss Molly during the holidays. Aprons at the ready!

Chocolate Biscuit Bats

What is a scary night without creepy bats? Make these chocolate Halloween biscuits for your trick or treating friends.

Prep time: 25 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


What you need

  • 1¼ cups flour
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • ¼ cup CADBURY Bournville Cocoa
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Red writing icing

Make it

  1. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa and butter in a food processor and process just until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the egg and process briefly to combine.
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead to form soft dough.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Roll out pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper to ½ cm thick. Cut out 10 bat shapes and place on a lightly greased baking tray. Bake in a hot oven 200°C for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Stand for 10 minutes before placing onto a wire rack. Cool.
  6. Ice each bat with red writing icing to make eyes. Store in an airtight container until required.
  7. Eat and lick your lips!! the most important step x x x
