Halloween Brownies are a must this Halloween, if you want to go “trick or treating”. These will certainly trick a few guests with the help of Bean Boozled Jelly Beans!



  • 185g (6oz) unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 185g (6oz) best dark chocolate, chopped
  • 85g (3oz) plain flour, sieved
  • 40g (1½oz) cocoa powder, sieved
  • 3 large eggs
  • 225g (½lb ) golden caster sugar
  • 100g (3oz) white chocolate, chopped
  • 32 Bean Boozled jelly beans


  1. Place the butter and chocolate in a bowl.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with some water and then sit the bowl on top so it rests on the rim of the pan, not touching the water. Put over a low heat until the butter and chocolate have melted, stirring occasionally to mix them. Remove the bowl from the pan.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.
  4. Using a shallow 20cm (8in) square tin, cut out a square of non-stick baking parchment to line the base.
  5. Break the eggs into a large bowl and tip in the sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the contents. After about 5 minutes, the mixture will look thick, creamy and about double its original volume. The amount of time this takes will depends on how powerful your mixer is.
  6. Gently fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the sweet egg mixture. Be careful not to beat the air out of the batter.
  7. Gently fold in the flour and cocoa powder and then stir in the white chocolate.
  8. Pour half of the batter into the tin, then sprinkle evenly with jelly beans.
  9. Pour the rest of the batter in. Give the tin a shake to even things out and then place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  10. If the center is still wobbly give it another 5 minutes in the oven.
  11. Wait for the brownie to completely cooled down before cutting into desired pieces.
  12. Store in an airtight container, preferably in the fridge. It is freezable too!


  • Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave. Zap it for 30 seconds at a time, stir it and zap again. Continue the process until the chocolate is melted.
