The dilemma

I want to make something fun for Halloween that both kids and adults will love.

The solution

Forget packets of sweets – if you want a real treat this Halloween, these decadent brownies will do the trick

Brownies are my go-to bake for most occasions – birthdays, school bake sales, or served warm as a dessert at dinner parties, with ice cream. They are the most versatile treat, and perfect for a Halloween get-together, too. Here, I’ve made my favourite brownie recipe, then decorated the traybake with spooky cookie eyeballs. They look the part, but are really simple to make, and just require a little hands-on time. For quicker decoration, you can crumble the cookies through the brownie mixture, and use the icing to pipe creepy spiderwebs on top.

LOOKING BACK…

It was a season to remember. It was a season to forget. Either way, you look at it, it was the strangest of seasons for San Francisco that you will ever see. Looking back at the year that was to illustrate that point, The Niner Report has assembled the best, worst and most unconventional of the 49ers’ 2020 season.

TOP 8 Worst encore seasons

There have been plenty of tough acts to follow in the history of the 49ers franchise with a team that has five Super Bowl championships, seven Super Bowl visits, 16 trips to the NFC Championship game, and 27 playoff appearances. That kind of success has seen the 49ers enter many seasons over the years looking to take the next step to greatness or simply maintain it. That makes them fall and crash even worse when San Francisco failed to achieve those goals coming off triumphant seasons. The 2020 49ers know all about it, which lands them a place on this list of the worst encore seasons in franchise history.

ROOKIE REVIEW

After building the 49ers into NFC champions with young talent during their first three years together — when San Francisco had a total of 40 rookies see action from 2017-2019 — the team’s leadership tandem of general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan found themselves with considerably less draft capital at their disposal in the fourth year of their partnership.
