Halloween Milkshakes: 3 Ways

A halloween idea you'll love: ghost milkshakes. So cute! What a fun idea for dressing up a sweet beverage for a Halloween party. 

First 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.

Now 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.

You can 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

Be sure to serve these immediately, as the syrup will continue to trickle down the side of the glass. 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.

This next one is very Goosebumps inspired: Monster Blood! To make your own monster blood, simply combined 1/3 cup light corn syrup and a few drops of green food coloring. To thicken you can left the monster blood in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

Fill 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. You can also use these candy frogs to garnish your monster blood milkshake.
