Here's looking at you! Halloween guests of all ages will get a kick out of this eerie "vision" staring back at them. It couldn't be easier to make. —Jeannie Klugh, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 8 cups milk
  • 1 cup mint chocolate chips
  • 1 cup instant hot cocoa mix
  • 16 large marshmallows
  • 16 Crows candies
  • 16 lollipop sticks

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup milk, chocolate chips and cocoa mix. Cook and stir over low heat until chips are melted. Stir in remaining milk; heat through.
  2. Meanwhile, cut a slit in top of each marshmallow; insert a candy. Carefully insert a lollipop stick through the bottom of each marshmallow and into each candy.
  3. Pour hot cocoa into mugs or cups; place two prepared marshmallows in each cup. Serve immediately.
Editor's Note
If mint chocolate chips are not available, place 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract in a plastic bag; seal and toss to coat. Allow chips to stand for 24-48 hours.
