Halloween Milkshakes: 3 Ways

Ghost milkshakesMy sister and I loved this idea for creating ghost milkshakes. So cute! What a fun idea for dressing up a sweet beverage for a Halloween party. We took the idea and expanded it into three different spooky milkshake ideas.How to paint with chocolateFirst melt 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips. You can do this in a small pot on the stove or in the microwave. Once the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and use a clean (never used before) paintbrush to create your design inside the glass. Allow this to set over night. Be sure to store them in a cool, dry place.How to make ghost milkshakesNow you can pour your milkshake into the prepared glass and you have a spooky ghost face! For my vanilla milk shake, I kept it simple by combining 2 parts vanilla ice cream with 1 part milk and blended until smooth. Add a little whip cream to finish the look.Vampire halloween decorI am a big Twilight fan (!!!!!!). So of course I wanted to create something vampire-themed. For these vampire bite milkshakes, you use the same chocolate-painting technique to create the bite marks. Once the chocolate is set, fill the glasses with the milkshake. Fill a plastic pastry bag with 4-5 tablespoons strawberry syrup. Carefully cut off the very tip of the pastry bag and insert it into the filled milkshake glass, aiming for the bite marks. Squirt a little "blood" on the bite marks and watch the syrup trickle down.How to make vampire blood milkshakesBe sure to serve these immediately, as the syrup will continue to trickle down the side of the glass. I think a plastic pastry bag works best for this technique, but you could also try a small plastic ziploc bag if you don't have a pastry bag on hand.Monster blood milkshakeThis next one is very Goosebumps inspired: Monster Blood! I think I read every Goosebumps book my school library had when I was in 3rd or 4th grade (or maybe it was 5th—I'll never tell!) And I loved Monster Blood—that was a good one. 🙂 To make my own monster blood, I simply combined 1/3 cup light corn syrup and a few drops of green food coloring. To thicken I left the monster blood in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.How to make monster bloodFill a pastry bag or squirt bottle with the prepared monster blood. Fill your glasses with milkshake, squirt a layer of monster blood around the inner edge and then top off with whipped cream. I also found these candy frogs to garnish my monster blood milkshake. I'm not totally sure what a gummy frog has to do with anything, but skewering one onto a stick in a monster blood milkshake seems pretty appropriate—given the circumstances. 🙂Halloween milkshakesPick your poison and have fun making your own spooky milkshakes this season! xo.

    Living in Belgium Halloween is not really something we celebrate, I mean we do know when it’s Halloween but we haven’t got any trick or treat or special parties going on. I really wish that was different!! I like scary food, I like dress up parties, I like pumpkins and I like autumn, Perfect Holiday I say!!

    xo Saar
