It’s fall, and Fall means Halloween. Now when you think of Halloween I doubt you think of Hot Chocolate, well I live in Florida and When it does get cold here you need some to stay warm because our bodies are not used to the chilly season. So the other day Bentley and I wanted something quick and easy and satisfying, and we whipped up just that. With Halloween a few days away, I thought why not make some Halloween looking hot chocolate, I knew it would be fun and simple to make!
I went to Walmart and grabbed all of these ingredients and supplies in the seasonal section for under $15 in the seasonal section near the front. I had already had milk and Half and Half.
I hope you enjoy this spooky treat for you and your family! It was a hit with my little ones and Hubby! Plus during making the hot chocolate I made some little Hot Chocolate skeleton “stirrers” with our extra orange chocolate to mix in with or drinks to make it a little more delicious.
Delicious Halloween Hot Chocolate
In a large pot, add milk and half-and-half, and heat over medium heat until simmering but not boiling.
Stir in other your white chocolate chips or orange chocolate. Continue stirring until chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is creamy.
Stir until smooth. Serve warm.
Optional Add Whipped Cream on the top and a few Halloween themed sprinkles!
Now I threw in more white chocolate chips and a little bit of the orange chocolate, which is the reason for my lighter colored orange hot chocolate, but if you really want that Orange to pop then add most orange then white chocolate.
Halloween is in a few days! In the beginning of the month Bentley’s school had said the children can wear their costumes on Halloween day( he is going to be the Red Power Ranger), but now they changed their minds and can only dress up as “Story Book Character’s”. So having only a few days we needed a simple, and quick story book costume! In a matter of two days i was able to make this cheap costume for my little one and you can too!
Thing’s you’ll need:
- White T-shirt
- Poster board or cardboard
- Brown paint
- Black paint
- Grey paint
- pink paint
- black face paint (or eyeliner)
I mostly had all of the paint already but Walmart has paint for around a dollar each, I also got the poster board and white T-shirt while at Walmart as well. The only thing I had to go find was the overalls, but fear not I found them at a child’s consignment store for around five bucks! (SCORE!). Tip: if you cant find overalls in boy’s, look in the girls section!
For the ears, I simply cut out two circles, painted then grey, let it dry and then painted a smaller circle within the ears. When they are completely I hot glued the circles to the headband.
The cookie was also simple to make, I just cut out a big circle and painted it light brown, let it dry completely, then with a darker brown I painted the chocolate chunks.
Now draw on a cute little nose, and roll up the bottom of the pants and you have a cute little story book mouse! Comment below on what kind of simple story book characters have you made!
Raising Lost Boys
About 3 years ago we found out Bentley was allergic to pumpkins ( I know such a odd allergies)! So this year I wanted to find a alternative for carving pumpkins. While shopping at the best craft store, Michaels. Which right now the Halloween decor and crafts is 50% off, score!
We happened to walk past these Styrofoam skulls, and thought what a neat idea to do by having paint them instead of carving a pumpkin. The skulls and other Styrofoam figures (Frankenstein, Witch , and a zombie) were actually 60% off , which ended up making them come out to about $3.00 each.
We also bought a package of this kind of paint , it was only $8.00 for the whole pack of 12.
Bentley had a blast painting his skull! While painting we even practiced how to spell his name, and what colors he wanted to use! So it doubled as a fun craft and a education lesson.
