Ok, folks….its time to get ready.  I’m not talking about getting candy or costumes ready.  Nor am I speaking of pumpkins or spooky Halloween decorations.  Its time to get your mental health in check.  You know that those kids of yours will have meltdowns, sugar highs & lows, sibling fights over how much candy someone did or didn’t get, and the ultimate monster screams when its time to call it a night, and a certain little boy or girl wants to go on to the next block for some additional sugar accumulation.  How is it that we can prepare for this?  One word…Alcohol!

I received this recipe many years ago at my bridal shower and is an oldie, but goodie.  I wish I knew who it came from, as there is no name on the handwritten recipe card.  I would love to thank this person for many great evenings, when I needed a warm spiked beverage after a long day.

Many great Halloween Wishes to you and your family!

    Thanks Erin xx

  • I’m all about this cozy beverage any time…even this morning! Already pinned! (=

  • I could use one of these right now. LOL. if only I had bought ice cream today. sigh thanks for sharing these at Talking Tuesday!

  • This looks DELICIOUS, and you are so right about the Halloween meltdowns. We had so much whining and crying about putting on costumes and getting out the door, that I was ready to call off trick-or-treating. Then, when we got home and I said it was too late to watch a Halloween show before bed, you would not believe the tantrum that ensued. Nightmare! I was so ready for a drink after all that was done, and I wish it would have been this one. Next time!

    • Oh, Andi! What a night!! Yeah, we’ve definitely had those in the past. Next time you will be set to kick back and relax. :)

  • Pinned and I’m making this very soon ! Thanks for sharing ;-)

  • Yum, this sounds delicious. Could you just use heavy whipping cream, heated, instead of the icecream and boiling water? Maybe add some vanilla extract.

  • Oh my! I could use this today! Thanks for sharing at Create it or Bake it. Come back tomorrow and link up!
