For the decoration
- 150g Betty Crocker™ Velvety Vanilla Icing

Betty's Easy Steps
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 20cm square shallow cake tin and line the base and 2 sides with baking paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir the brownie mix, oil, water and egg together until well blended. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared tin and bake for 20-22 minutes until a round bladed knife inserted into the brownie comes out almost clean. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely in the tin; about 30 minutes.
- Lift the brownie from the tin using the baking paper. Cut the brownie into 12 rectangles.
- Place the icing in a medium bowl and use the green food colouring paste or gel to colour the icing bright green. Spread the icing over each brownie.
- Place 2 red chocolate beans on each iced brownie for eyes. Sprinkle the tops of the some of the brownies with chocolate strands for hair. Use the black writing icing to dot on the pupils of the eyes and to pipe on mouths, extra hair and stitches on the faces. Push 2 pieces of liquorice into the side of each brownie for bolts. Serve immediately or keep in a cool place for up to 2-3 days.

- Be creative with the features of these monster brownies! Some can be happy and some can be grumpy. You can even colour the icing blue, purple or pink to change things up a bit.
- Instead of liquorice you could use green or orange jelly beans for the bolts, and instead of just red chocolate beans, you can mix it up by using other colours, if you prefer.
