FOOD FUN: Halloween Hot Chocolate & More

Here’s a fun way to serve hot chocolate, whether for a party or family breakfast. You can use instant hot chocolate, or make it from scratch.

RECIPE: Halloween Hot Chocolate

      Preparation

    1. PREPARE hot chocolate; add to cups. Stir in optional spices (if you’re making hot chocolate from scratch in a sauce pan, add them to the sauce pan).

    2. Top with whipped cream.

    3. INSERT marshmallow cat, ghost or pumpkin. If using the optional skewer, first place marshmallow on top.
     
    SERVING SUGGESTION

    Any solid color mug you have is just fine.

    But if you like the idea of holiday mugs, look for markdowns on Halloween-theme mugs, or buy black or orange mugs that can be used year-round. We like these festive mugs in orange and black stripes and dots.
