Halloween Hot Chocolate

Halloween Hot Chocolate

I think fall may be over here in the NW and we’ve gone right into winter. My husband joked that he needed to go out and build an ark in our backyard which is very quickly turning into a lake due to all the rain we have had this week – 4 inches in 2 days. On a cold, blustery winter like day nothing is better than a cup of hot chocolate. We aren’t coffee drinkers at our house but we are big hot chocolate drinkers.

I am also a big fan of white chocolate and love making my hot chocolate with white chocolate. I decided to turn the white hot chocolate into some Halloween hot chocolate with a little food coloring and some edible googly eyes!

Halloween Hot Chocolate is sure to be a total hit at any Halloween party or to warm up those trick or treaters when they come home.

What little trick or treater wouldn’t love a mug of Spooky White Hot Chocolate?

Those edible googly eyes are the perfect way to top off the whip cream.

Or how about serving it monster style.  Just add green food coloring and some purple, green and black sprinkles.  And a few more googly eyes of course!

And then for all those fellow candy corn fans out there how about some candy corn hot chocolate!!

Just add some orange food color to the liquid  and top with whip cream, yellow sprinkles and a few candy corn.

A fun and festive way to enjoy a mug of hot chocolate this Halloween season!

    What fun ideas! LOVE the Candy Corn Idea.

    Do you use white chocolate chips . . . or a white chocolate candy bar . . . or what?

    You can also buy White Chocolate “Sauce” in the “coffee” section of most stores, because it is used for mochas and lattes. (I buy a large container at Cash & Carry.) My kids LOVE it when I make their hot chocolate with our white chocolate sauce.

    My kids also LOVE it when I add some of our “coffee” flavors to their Hot Chocolate. You could make the Monster Hot Chocolate out of Peppermint Paddy flavoring. (which is very inexpensive at Cash & Carry)

    Oooohh….I am THRILLED that I found your website via Pinterest. I am now your newest follower. I have a tremendous amount of respect, immense respect, for your advocacy of motherhood/family while concurrently finding a way to be creative and work. I, too, subscribe to that ideology and, as a journalist, live out that belief system. I have managed to maintain some semblance of a professional career while also raising (homeschooling, too) my beloved kids.

    You are an immense blessing!

    Cute hot chocolate! Sorry to hear about you having rain too, Leigh Anne. We also had just short of 4 inches of rain but it was in just over 24 hours about a week ago. Not fun.
