What child doesn’t like Halloween? We have a quick, easy Halloween chocolate recipe that is the perfect alternative to store-bought chocolate bars and sweets.


  • 2 cups cocoa powder (adjust amount to type of chocolate you prefer i.e. dark, milk or white*)
  • 3/4 cup cocoa butter or dairy butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup Parmalat GrowthMilk 3+
  • 1/2 cup preferred sweetener
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Halloween-themed chocolate moulds

*Note that white chocolate contains NO cocoa powder so we would suggest using cocoa butter instead of dairy butter.


  1. Heat a saucepan of water until it simmers. Meanwhile, mix the cocoa powder and butter into a thick paste.
  2. Immerse the cocoa mixture in the heated water and bring back to simmering. Then remove the heated cocoa mixture and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Combine the sweeteners and salt. Mix together in a bowl or food processor until smooth.
  4. Add the combined sugar and salt to the cocoa mixture. Pour in Growth milk slowly while stirring thoroughly to remove any lumps.
  5. Pour the mixture into shaped moulds or other containers, then refrigerate for at least six hours or until the chocolate hardens.
