The scariest class of all

Sixty minutes goes by in a flash when you're making Halloween treats! We had so much we wanted to get done so we had to use our time wisely. We began by making some shortcut donuts- we used a roll of refrigerator biscuits, cut a hole in the middle and fried them up.

The whole thing took less than 10 minutes. We set our donuts aside to cool and started making our brownies. This is my favorite brownie recipe- it's dense and fudgey and comes from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. 

You begin by melting chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Then stir in the sugar. Whisk in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and then fold in the flour and salt. Pour into your pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. 

Then decorate to your heart's content.
