Halloween Butterscotch Ghosts
Makes 6 ghosts
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ cup mini chocolate chips, reserve 24 for ghost eyes and mouth
1 cup confectioners sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine sugar and butter.
Add eggs and mix well.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; combine with sugar mixture.
Stir in vanilla and mini chocolate chips (reserve some for ghost eyes).
Grease a mini ghost shaped 6-cavity cake pan.
Fill each ghost half full of batter.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, careful not to overcook.
Sprinkle ghost with confectioners sugar and use mini chocolate chips for eyes and mouth.
When making these I always set aside more mini chips than I need, just to be sure I have enough after stirring the rest in the batter.
