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 Growth 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 3+ 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.
