Hocus Pocus Hot Cocoa

Get in the Halloween spirit with this Hocus Pocus Hot Cocoa made with milk, sugar and chocolate chips to sip on while you watch your favorite Halloween movies!

Hocus Pocus Hot Cocoa

Just in time for the colder temps, this mug of hot chocolate is great for sitting by the fire while watching FreeForm’s 31 Days of Halloween movies playing all day long. It’s my favorite time to do so and becoming a Halloween tradition.

This hot cocoa is not like your ordinary hot cocoa recipe. It has a mint flavor and green in color just like the witches potion in the Hocus Pocus movie. To get in the Halloween spirit, I like to put it in a Hocus Pocus or Halloween mug.

It’s a fun drink to make, tastes delicious and is great for a Halloween party also. If you’re looking for a drink for the adults try this Amuck Cocktail inspired by the Sanderson sisters.
