Cadbury Chocolate Brain Cakes Recipe

Creepy but lovely chocolate cupcakes for the trick or treaters!

What you need

1 1/3 cups self-raising flour
½ cup CADBURY BOURNVILLE Cocoa
125g butter, softened
¾ cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup milk

250g PHILADELPHIA Block Cream Cheese, chopped
225g CADBURY White Chocolate Melts
Pink food colouring
Red writing icing, for decorating

Make it

  1. SIFT the flour and cocoa into a large bowl, add the butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs and milk and mix to combine. Spoon the mixture into 12 x 1/3 cup capacity paper lined muffin pans. 
  2. BAKE in a moderate oven 180°C for 20 minutes or until cooked when tested. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before turning out of pan to cool completely. Store in an airtight container until required.
  3. COMBINE the PHILLY and chocolate in a bowl and stir over gently simmering water until smooth. Allow the mixture to cool until firm enough to pipe. Spoon into a piping bag with a plain nozzle then pipe onto each cake to resemble 2 halves of a brain. Use writing icing to make blood vessels etc.  Serve immediately or store, chilled, in an airtight container until required.
