Halloween Snacks – Jack O Lantern Floats

Jack O Lantern Floats - Halloween Recipe


Whenever we visit my dad, he likes to offer us chocolate milkshakes and chocolate sodas. This is a really yummy dessert my kids enjoy. So to do something fun this year for Halloween, I wanted to make some Halloween Snacks for us to enjoy while we were decorating our pumpkins. I used a little inspiration from my dad’s favorite dessert!

The first thing we had to do was head to Walmart to pick up all the ingredients we needed to decorate pumpkins and make Fanta Floats. Walmart even had free samples! These are so easy to make and delicious! I would drink this every day.



How To Make Jack O Lantern Floats

Before we started to decorate the pumpkins, we decorated our plastic cups with Jack O Lantern faces. All you need is a sharpie to create your spooky Jack O Lantern face. Your kids will have tons of fun making silly faces on their cups.


Add the ice cream


Grab your favorite vanilla ice cream and add a scoop to your cup.


Pour the fanta


Then pour enough Fanta to almost fill the cup. Give it a little stir with your straw to combine these amazing flavors.


Add whipped cream


Last, squirt some canned whipped cream on top. Serve and enjoy! This delicious combination is like eating an Orange Creamsicle ice pop. But a little less messy. You get the combination of the creamy vanilla ice cream with the cold, fizzy orange soda.

We like Fanta! I bet this tastes almost like an orange creamsicle- I love the cups being decorated.
