Ogre Eyes Hot Chocolate #Choctoberfest

Today is the Taste of Home Tuesday Choctober celebration!  Yes!  After a whole week of Chotcoberfest fun, I’m back again with more chocolate, because really, is there such a thing as too much chocolate?  It keeps the dementors away.  Or well, makes you feel better after a dementor attack at any rate.

Wait, what were we talking about?


More chocolate!

Since it’s almost Halloween, I wanted to make a chocolaty, Halloweeny treat for the kids!

The boys got a kick out of the “eye balls” – plus this is super easy to make!  I’ll definitely be making this spooky drink on Halloween!
