Chocolate Milk is the Official Drink of Halloween
Date:10/23/2013

Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The last day of October is largely known for ghosts, costumes and trick-or-treating. With that in mind, the list of Halloween essentials just got a little sweeter, as Florida Dairy Farmers is proud to recognize chocolate milk as the official drink of Halloween.

Serving chocolate milk on Halloween is a great way to give your trick-or-treaters a nutritional boost disguised as a sweet indulgence. Chocolate milk, like white milk, contains nine essential nutrients – calcium, protein, vitamins A, D, and B12, phosphorus, potassium, niacin and riboflavin – which help maintain a balanced diet.

Research shows that kids who regularly drink low-fat or fat-free chocolate milk are less likely to opt for sodas or other sugary beverages. They are also more likely to maintain a healthy weight compared to kids who drink little or no milk at all.

With Halloween right around the corner, here are some “spook-tacular” recipes to help supply your little ghouls and goblins with nutritious dairy foods dressed up as tasty treats.

Dirt Cups featuring Brownie Brittle

Ingredients:

For the chocolate pudding

  •     3/4 cups white sugar
  •     2 cups milk (whole or low-fat)
  •     1/4 cup cornstarch
  •     1/4 teaspoon salt
  •     4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  •     2 tablespoons butter
  •     1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, milk, cornstarch, salt and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil while stirring, cook until mixture thickens and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. Cover and set aside for assembly.

For the creamy vanilla pudding:

  •     2 cups milk (whole or low fat)
  •     1 cup sugar
  •     1/4 teaspoon salt
  •     1/4 cup cornstarch
  •     1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •     2 tablespoons butter

Optional: Two drops yellow food coloring and one drop red

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, milk, cornstarch, and salt. Bring to a boil while stirring, cook until mixture thickens and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. If orange color is desired for Halloween pudding add the coloring.

To assemble:

Crush Brownie Brittle (one, 4-ounce package) by pounding with a mallet or heavy pan.

In a clear cup place 1 TBS crushed brittle on bottom, alternate with layers of orange and chocolate puddings, having final (top) layer ending with crushed brittle. Decorate with gummy worms and whole brittle piece.

Halloween Ghost Shakes

Ingredients:

  •     2 cups reduced fat milk
  •     1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  •     2 tablespoons chocolate chips, melted
  •     1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Directions: In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate ships at 50 percent power for 40 seconds, stir and repeat at 10 second intervals until melted. Using a clean paintbrush, paint ghost face on the inside of a clear cup. Allow to set (5 minutes) In a blender, combine the milk, frozen yogurt and vanilla. Pour into prepared cups.
