Need a little something on those chilly Halloween nights? How about a hauntingly good White Hot Chocolate with a drizzle of vampires blood on top? When I say vampires blood I really mean strawberry syrup. It's the perfect drink for your Halloween gathering. You could put it into a crockpot to keep it warm while you're out trick-or-treating for the evening.
This is just one of the recipes you can find on the Dixie Crystals Kids in the Kitchen website. They have fun recipes as well as crafts that you can do with your kids.
This was a fun one to make. I hope you have a Happy Halloween!
