These Halloween Popsicles are spooky easy to make! Made with just 3 simple ingredients and prepped in just minutes, they are the perfect Halloween treat. While this post is sponsored by Florida Milk, our love for Halloween and Halloween treats are our own.
The Halloween season is upon on! Can you believe it?! We love Halloween, in fact, I have already started decorating. Little by little though so that my husband doesn’t notice it all at once 😉 Anyone else have bins of Halloween fun that they can’t wait to take out every year? Halloween is the time for haunted houses, Trick-or-Treating, Halloween parties, and Halloween treats. We love hosting Halloween parties because they give everyone the chance to dress up in Halloween costumes, make Halloween-themed eats and treats, and have a good time with family and friends. In our neighborhood, Halloween is a fun holiday for children and adults!
Are you planning your Halloween menu? Well, let me help! We just made the easiest, most delicious Halloween popsicles ever!
And when I say that they were easy to make, I’m not joking…the main ingredient is chocolate milk.
Yes, that’s it! It’s the perfect main ingredient too, since chocolate milk is the official drink of Halloween.
Plus, you can feel good about serving these Spooky Halloween popsicles to your friends and family because while they are a sweet treat, they are also nutritious.
Did you know that chocolate milk delivers 13 essential nutrients? Each serving of chocolate milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein, including calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus. So when you serve these chocolate milk Halloween popsicles you can feel good knowing that you are serving a spooky, yet nutritious Halloween treat.
Halloween Popsicles Key Ingredients
- Chocolate Milk
- Chocolate Chips
- Halloween Sprinkles
We melted the chocolate chips so that we could dip our chocolate milk popsicles into it for an extra chocolatey treat, and we, of course, had to add in Halloween sprinkles!
Pro Tips For Decorating Halloween Popsicles
- Double boiler method to melt the chocolate is the best way to melt chocolate.
- Adding a cap full of canola oil will keep the chocolate smooth.
- Don’t melt the chocolate until the popsicles are fully frozen and ready.
- Use spatula to drizzle chocolate on the top of the popsicles, covering around ⅓ of the way down. Do not dip the popsicles into the chocolate, this will cause all of the chocolate to harden.
- Use Halloween sprinkles! I got mine at Michael’s, but I have seen them at Walmart and Target too.
- When serving, be sure to have ice on the platter to keep your Halloween popsicles from melting.
Be sure to serve up your Spooky Chocolate Milk Popsicles on a fun Halloween platter (I got mine at Home Goods, but they have a lot of options on Amazon too) and don’t forget the plastic spiders! You can find plastic spiders just about anywhere this time of year, but I got a few bags at the dollar store. Place the spiders on the table for that extra added spooky effect! If you put them directly on the platter, be sure that everyone knows they aren’t edible 😉
Do you have to use the double broiler method to melt the chocolate?
I will be honest, I was slow to getting on the double-broiler train, but it really is the best way to melt chocolate. You are using indirect heat to melt the chocolate, which helps prevent over-cooking the chocolate. When chocolate is overcooked it gets hard and lumpy. Definitely not ideal for decorating our Halloween popsicles. We didn’t test this recipe using melting chocolates in the microwave, but if you try it, let us know how it turns out!
How to melt chocolate using a double broiler
- Place a saucepan on the stove and add 1-2 inches of water to the pan.
- Place a heat-safe mixing bowl over the saucepan. Make sure that it fits well so that the steam is trapped in.
- Add the chocolate chips to the bowl.
- Turn the stove onto medium heat, as the water starts to warm up, it will steam. The steam will start to melt the chocolate.
- Continuously stir with a heat-safe rubber spatula or wooden spoon until all of the chocolate has melted.
It may seem like using the double broiler method for melting the chocolate chips is more time consuming, but I promise you, it’s 100% worth it!
Now that you have your Spooky Halloween Popsicles ready for your Halloween parties, here are a few other things you will want to make sure you have ready for your Halloween parties:
You can either buy or make decorations. If you decide to make them, have the kids help! Drape furniture with sheets to give it a haunted house feel. Dim the lights and use electric and battery operated candles. Trace bats on paper and have the kids help cut them out. These can be hung on windows or from the ceiling. The spooky possibilities are endless!
Don’t forget the music
Find a cheap CD at the dollar store (yes, they still make CDs) or have the kids make a Halloween playlist and be sure to have it playing as guests arrive.
Halloween Themed Food
Here are a few options to serve up along with your Halloween Popsicles:
- Kid-Friendly Halloween Snack Board
- Halloween Apple Monsters
- Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Balls
- Halloween Monster Cookies
Games And Activities
Having games and activities for you guests will make your party even more fun. Host a costume contest and have small prizes for the cutest, scariest, etc. costumes. If you can buy a bunch of pumpkins, having a pumpkin carving contest can also be a lot of fun. You can find lots of Halloween Party Games on Pinterest too.

Spooky Easy Halloween Popsicles
- ½ gallon Chocolate Milk

- Vegetable or canola oil use your oil cap or 1/2 tbsp
- Pour chocolate milk into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until popsicles are fully frozen.
- Melt chocolate using the double boiler method. Use a small pot to boil 1-2 inches or water. Once boiling, lower temperature to medium low and place a glass bowl on top of the pot. Add chocolate chips and oil to boil. Use spatula to mix.
- Remove popsicle mold from freezer and run under warm water for 1 minute to slightly loosen the popsicles making them easier to remove from the molds. Place popsicles on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

- Store the popsicles in the freezer until ready to serve.
