Make your fall drinks way ghoulier with these fun and easy Halloween marshmallows!

We used:
– pre-packaged instant hot chocolate mix (but you could definitely make your own)
– marshmallows
– black FoodWriter marker

After cutting the marshmallows in half (which isn’t totally necessary, but means the marshmallows will float flat, or “face up” when they get put in the cocoa (a round marshmallow will spin, and might flip over, leaving your ghost-face unseen).

Let your kids use the black food-safe marker to make spooky ghost faces while you boil water for the hot chocolate.  Mix it up to your liking and let add the marshmallows.  Your hot chocolate will be instantly most festive!

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
