I can’t believe how quickly Halloween is approaching.  It seemed like just last week it was 90 degrees and super hot.  Now all of a sudden fall weather is taking over and Halloween is almost here.   It’s crazy to say but Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays.

Kids and adults will enjoy this delicious Halloween Hot Chocolate

I love getting dressed up at school and seeing the reactions on the kids faces to my costumes.   I have 3 or 4 that I rotate throughout the years but the kids still get a kick out of them.  I also enjoy passing out candy at our house.   Where we used to live we would only get a handful of trick-or-treaters and some years we didn’t have anyone!   Now we get 200-300 kids and I love it.

Everything you need to make Halloween hot Chocolate

Each year I have a Halloween reward party for the kids at school.  It’s one of their favorite parties because I make all of the treats in a Halloween theme.  I’ve made brain cupcakes, Monster Bundt Cakes, and candy corn cupcakes.   Every year it’s something different.

This year I’m making this Halloween Hot Chocolate for them.  I love it because it’s super easy to make but I know the kids will think it’s super fun.   It’s actually a white hot chocolate that is dyed with food coloring.  I used orange, purple, and green coloring but you can use any color you would like.

The Hot Chocolate is super easy to make with only a handful of ingredients.  It’s divided into bowls and dyed.   Then it’s placed in mugs, topped with whipped cream, then toppings are put on.  I used Halloween colored sprinkles, marshmallows colored like eye balls, and marshmallows decorated like ghosts.   It took me less then 15 minutes to make 8 mugs of Halloween Hot Chocolate.

  • 12 oz. white chocolate chips or disks
  • 8 c. milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 Tablespoons vanilla
  • orange, green, and purple food coloring
  • Whipped Cream
  • Halloween Sprinkles
  • mini marshmallows
  • Edible marker


  1. Place the white chocolate in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the milk in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer but do not boil!
  3. While the milk is heating up use an edible black marker to put dots on mini marshmallows to make eyeballs. Then use it to make 2 eyes and mouth on mini marshmallows to make mini ghosts. If you don't have an edible marker you can use melted chocolate instead.
  4. Quickly pour the warm milk over top of the white chocolate and whisk until combined. Mix in the vanilla.
  5. Divide the hot chocolate into 3 bowls. Dye one orange, one green, and one purple. Pour into mugs.
  6. Spray with whipped cream and top with sprinkles, eye balls, and ghosts.
  7. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles, "eyeballs", or "ghosts".
