Moon and star brownie cakes

Makes 12

Equipment You'll need moon and star stencils plus 12 large paper-lined foil patty pan cases.

* 100g good-quality milk chocolate
* 100g good-quality dark chocolate
* 125g unsalted butter, chopped
* 1/2 cup caster sugar
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 2 eggs, lightly beaten
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup plain flour, sifted
* 1/2 cup icing sugar mixture

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole, 1/3-cup capacity muffin pan with patty pan cases.
2. Break milk and dark chocolate into squares. Place chocolate squares, butter, caster sugar and brown sugar in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until chocolate and butter have melted. Transfer to a bowl. Allow to cool to room temperature.
3. Add egg and vanilla extract to chocolate mixture. Stir to combine. Add flour. Stir until just combined.
4. Spoon mixture into patty pan cases until two-thirds full. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with crumbs clinging. Allow cakes to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
5. Place 1 moon or star stencil over 1 cake. Sift over icing sugar. Remove stencil. Repeat with stencils and remaining cakes. Serve.

Notes & tips
* You can find the patty pan cases in the baking section of the supermarket.
