Halloween Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes
Celebrate Halloween with a simple spooky bake that will delight your kids and is also a decadent treat for the adults.
These spooky and decadent chocolate Bundt cakes are great fun to make with the kids.
They are sooo spookily cute with the melted marshmallows on top!
The little pumpkins are made out of a rich dark chocolate cake mix and baked in mini Bundt tins, creating these lovely pumpkin shapes.
Then the two halves are sandwiched together with sticky blood-red damson jam, but any sweet red jam would work. Raspberries also go really well with chocolate, so you could try my Raspberry & Juniper Jam.
The spooky ghost web effect is created with strings of gooey melted marshmallows!! 👻
To make the stalk of the pumpkin, I used matchmakers as they are strong enough to push through the top of your mini Bundt cake.
These are such great desserts for young and old and so simple to make. Read more to find out how to make these SPOOKILICIOUS mini chocolate Bundt cakes.
Chocolate Mini Bundt Cake Recipe
This mix will make 24 mini cakes,
200g dark chocolate 60-70%
200g soft butter
250g caster sugar
4 free-range/organic eggs
1-2 tbsp Deli Muru Damson Jam
1-2 white marshmallows
1-2 sticks of matchmakers
Preheat your oven to 190C/375F
Grease the mini Bundt tins with butter and dust lightly with flour.
Melt your butter and chocolate in a Bain Marie or a heatproof bowl over a simmering pan of water.
Once they have melted, mix in the sugar and allow to cool for a few minutes before adding one egg at a time, until completely combined.
Finally, add your flour.
Fill each mini Bundt tin halfway up. You don’t want them too big as you’re going to sandwich them together!
Bake for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before turning them out onto a baking tray to cool.
Once cool, scoop a small amount of cake from the mixture (cooks share!) and fill with damson jam and bring out so jam drips out from the edges when sandwiched together. Then add a bit of a broken matchmaker stick to the top of the pumpkin to create a stalk.
Finally and carefully toast a marshmallow or two, (ADULT job!) Once gooey, use a fork (be careful as the mallow will be very hot) to pull the mallow apart to create stringy cobwebs and wrap around your cakes!🎃
Why not pin this for later.
