Ghost Whip! For Halloween.

whipSometimes it’s the simple things in life that make us smile. So this super, simple idea is one that turns everyday whipped topping into spooky, Halloween-approved Ghost Whip. Because you know there will be many mugs of hot cocoa on the kitchen table these next few months. My “Ghost Whip” tips and a spooky cocoa recipe ahead. Add some spOOOOky to your cocoa!

Ghost Whip Tips:

* Instead of doing a straight-up swirl, I start by making a full circle “cap” of whipped cream to the top of the mug – then I swirl a ghost on top. This prevents the ghost from melting too quickly.
* For dairy-free ghosts use coconut milk in a whipped cream frother (dairy-free coconut whipped cream is shown in my photos).
* The black eyes can be made from a number of items: mini chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles (carefully placed), or a tiny tip of black cake frosting.
* If you do have your own at-home whipped cream frother (like the one I talk about here) – you can make green spooky ghosts by adding a few drops of green food coloring or spinach juice to your cream base.

Now a fun spooky cocoa recipe using coconut and chocolate flavors..
