- Now spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes – make a stick test.
- Then take the cake out of the oven, let it cool and cut two coffin parts out of it. Scoop out the bottom dough of the coffin with a spoon and set the crumbs aside for the time being. If you want, you can now fill the resulting hole with various sweets. Brush the edge with a little jam.
- Then place the two parts on top of each other, place on a sheet of baking paper, spread the jam on the outside, melt the chocolate in a water bath and decorate the “coffin” with it. Spread the crumbs of dough around the outside so that it looks like this is the grave soil.
- Now let the chocolate dry, paint a cross with white fondant and you’re ready to go chocolatey Halloween coffin be served.
