I love pumpkin milkshakes. Shoot, I love pretty much any milkshake! But when pumpkin season comes along, I’m ready with my excuses for why I need a milkshake for dinner.

Even better when I can add a little spooky face to the glass and make it festive. A long, long time ago…when I worked for the Martha Stewart empire: I created these darling Boo-nilla shakes for her Kids magazine. Here’s a little snapshot of the magazine page:

Kids magazineI think they’re pretty darn cute, and they were super simple! I took these little darlings a step further. I wanted more than just ghosts! What about jack-o-lanterns?

I use little clean paint brushes to “paint” melted chocolate on the inside of my glasses (you may have some unused brushes in the craft drawer you can bring in to the kitchen. Otherwise find them here).

One of the tricks for success is to use wide-mouth, or short glasses for this treat. Tall skinny glasses are harder to get the paintbrush into and you can’t make as specific of designs. I made a simple ghost in a tall skinny glass, but a jack-o-lantern would have been too tricky!

You usually have just a little bit of pumpkin puree left in the can after making pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cake, etc. That little bit that is left is usually just enough for a shake, for me! And that delicious shake looks dang cute in a jack-o-lantern glass.

I didn’t forget those happy little vanilla ghosts though. I couldn’t resist making a whole family of tasty treats.
