Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats #GBBO #Patisserieweek

These Halloween themed Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats are great fun to serve your children at this time of year. Easy to make and your kids could even help decorate them!

It is semi finals week on the Great British Bake Off and with that brings patisserie week.  Do you have your favourite to win the series yet? Having read up on tonights show, I decided to have a go at making some Choux Buns which is the signature round this week. Rather than make 24 identical choux buns, I thought I would make some Halloween inspired buns instead: Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats. Therefore, I opted to make 10 Mummy Eclairs and 10 Choux Bats (for some reason my recipe made 20 choux buns instead of 24!).

*Mokatines
*Three tiers of choux pastry eclairs filled with creme pat
I decided to go with what I thought would be the easiest : Mokatines.
