How to: Nightmare Before Christmas Hot Chocolate Recipe

Carrying on with my fusion of Halloween and Christmas this year, I thought I would make a Nightmare Before Christmas-esque hot chocolate recipe complete with green sparkly sprinkles. Read on for everything you need to make the yummiest festive drink you ever did discover!



What You’ll Need:

  • Your favourite mason jar (preferably Halloween themed)
  • Cadbury’s hot chocolate- 2-3 heaped teaspoons
  • Milk- I used 100-150ml of soya milk
  • Marshmallows- I used normal sized ones as oppose to mini ones (I’m greedy like that!)
  • Festive sprinkles- I chose green sparkly ones for a Halloween feel!



How to Make:

  1. Boil your kettle and put 2-3 heaped teaspoons of your favourite hot chocolate powder into the mason jar.
  2. Pour a small amount of hot water into the mason jar so it just covers the powder- beat the mixture with a spoon until it forms a paste.
  3.  Pour in a small amount of milk and stir again. Then pour more milk until it reaches the screw ridge marks of the jar before piling on your marshmallows.
  4. Here’s where the fun part comes in; stick your mason jar in the microwave for a minute on 900w to heat the hot chocolate and melt those marshmallows
  5. Finally, top with green sprinkles and stick your straw into the mason jar. Voila! Halloween/Christmas hot choc complete!
