Malt Biscuits Recipe
Makes 20 to 30 biscuits.

2 cups (0.45 Kg) flour
½ cup (113.4 g) malt extract, honey syrup or golden syrup
½ cup (113.4 g) sugar
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp water
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

Put all ingredients except the flour into a saucepan and dissolve over moderate heat.

When dissolved, remove from the heat and stir in the flour.

Chill the mixture in the refrigerator in a covered bowl for 10-15 minutes (or longer if required) to make the dough a more suitable consistency for rolling.

Chocolate Malt Biscuits
Follow the instructions for the Malt Biscuits, substituting 2 Tbsp. of flour for 2 Tbsp. of cocoa and add with the flour to the mixture when it is removed from the heat.

To Make Edible Dark Marks

Make one batch of malt biscuits and one batch of chocolate malt biscuits.

Roll out thin on a lightly floured surface.

Cut out the chocolate malt biscuit dough into rectangular shapes and brush lightly with milk.

Cut skulls out of the malt biscuit dough and place one on top of each the chocolate rectangles.

Cut the gummy worms or candy snakes lengthwise and then across to make a short, thin "snake".

Place the snake on the biscuit decoratively coming from the skull's mouth.

Brush the remainder of the biscuit lightly with milk.

Bake at 350°F (180°C) until for approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

Cool, then package them in the Edible Dark Mark Box!

The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
