Haunting Hot Chocolate
This orange-kissed, hot white chocolate drink looks even spookier with a ghost-shaped marshmallow floating in it.
1 medium orange
3 cups whole milk - divided use
2/3 cup vanilla-flavored baking pieces or vanilla-flavored candy coating
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Purchased marshmallow ghosts
Whipped cream (optional)
Ground nutmeg (optional)
- Remove peel of orange with vegetable peeler; set aside.
- In a medium saucepan combine 1/4 cup of the milk, the vanilla-flavored baking pieces, orange peel, and nutmeg; whisk over low heat until baking pieces are melted. Remove orange peel. Whisk in remaining milk and heat through. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
- Serve warm in mugs. Add a marshmallow ghost, dollop with whipped cream, and sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.
