Falloween Fun List Day #24

Share this

For Falloween Fun List Day #24, just in time for the weekend, make a frighteningly good mocktail to serve to family and friends. Here are two of my favorites!

Candy Corn Drink

  • 1-4 serving-size package lemon-flavor gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling waterCandy Corn Mocktail
  • 2 cups mango nectar
  • 3 ½ cups orange carbonated beverage, chilled
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • Candy corn (optional)

Directions: (makes 8 servings)

1. In a large bowl, combine gelatin and boiling water, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in mango nectar. Pour mixture into a tall, clear 2-quart pitcher. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until thickened but not set.

2.  Gently pour orange carbonated beverage over gelatin layer in pitcher. Tip: To ensure the carbonated beverage stays on top of the gelatin mixture, hold a wooden spoon above the gelatin layer and pour the carbonated beverage over the back of the spoon.
3. In a large bowl, combine whipping cream and honey. Beat with an electric mixer or large whisk just until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
4. Spoon over mixtures in pitcher. If desired, add candy. Before serving, stir to muddle.


Blood-Red Hot Chocolate

Haunted Hot Cocoa

  • 5 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons red gel-paste food coloring
  • Marshmallow Bones, for serving


  1. Bring milk and sugar to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves, about 7 minutes. Pour over chocolate, and let stand. When chocolate begins to melt, stir until combined. Whisk in food coloring. Serve immediately with marshmallow bones.
