Intent on making Halloween last as long as possible, I confidently sauntered up to the Kitsch-en Kounter to do a quick Halloween-themed "bake" - a Pumpkin-Spice-Cream-Cheese-Dark-Chocolate-Brownie Jack O' Lantern.
|Much to my surprise, it actually worked!|
Meet the Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Jack O' Brownie Lantern!!!
My staunch refusal to adhere to the exacting standards of modern baked goods combined with the fact that this was an experimental recipe, meant that there was an overwhelming surplus of batter. Undeterred, I thought WWMBD? (what would Mary Berry do?); immediately, I retrieved a loaf pan from the cupboard.
|Using the remaining batters, I settled upon a pumpkin loaf with a cream cheese swirl.|
It seemed a little unfinished, so I whipped up a quick streusel topping.
I might not be ready for the pressures of a "showstopper" challenge, but you can be darn sure that I am ready for the spookiest night of the year!
|Not to worry, I am definitely not the weirdo handing out|
homemade treats or, worse yet, pennies/pencils/raisins!
How are you preparing for the big day? We hope it is with full-size candy bars!!! However you choose to celebrate, we wish you a Happy and FRIENDLY Halloween!!!
