‘Boneyard Brownie’ recipe

I made these delicious brownies to celebrate my 2nd favorite holiday and to take to Vegan Manchester’s Autumn potluck. They went down a storm both with guests and the neighbors. A variation on popular ‘Slutty brownies’ these brownies have a layer of oreos at the bottom, fudge frosting on top and then oreo gravel on top of that! Devilishly delicious and sinfully sweet!




First the frosting as it will need to go in the fridge as you bake.

55g Vitalite Dairy free spread

3 Dessert spoons soya milk – you may need extra depending on how thick it goes – depends on oil levels in the chocolate you use

3 Tablespoons cocoa powder

200g sifted icing sugar

25g dairy free dark chocolate chips -melted

  1.  Blend the above together using a food processor or stand mixer and leave to set in the fridge.

Now for the brownies-

175 g Stork Baking Block

3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

3 teaspoons of baking powder/soda

235 g caster sugar

80 g plain flour

175g dark chocolate

2 teaspoons soya or almond milk

40g alkalized cocoa powder

Oreo cookies!

  1. Preheat oven to 180 ⁰C, gas mark 4. Grease and line the base and sides of your tin with greaseproof paper
  2. Add the Baking soda to the apple cider vinegar
  3. Separate your Oreo cookies- keeping the halves with the creme on whole if possible



  4. Melt the chocolate and margarine in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Cool slightly.
  5. Whisk the apple cider vinegar and baking powder mix and sugar until thick pour over the chocolate mixture and fold in gently
  6. Sift in the flour and cocoa and stir, now add the 2 teaspoons of milk and mix well although tiny lumps will remain
  7. Place your oreo cookies face up in your tin
  8. Pour the thick mixture into the prepared tin over the oreos, making sure it goes right into the corners and bake for 25-30 minutes. The top should be crusty but still gooey underneath as the brownies settle when cooled
  9. Cool completely in the tin (if you can then refrigerate overnight which helps icing if not then pop in the freezer for half an hour)
  10. Decorate with a medium thick layer of fudge frosting
  11. Pulse your remaining oreo halves in a food processor or crush using a rolling pin and bag method till tiny and resembling dirt
  12. Sprinkle/cover the brownie with the gravel mixture it should look like this


    Looks like the ground right?

  13. Decorate as you wish- I used skeleton toys and scary sour skittles!
