MilkTail Recipe: A fun New Year’s Eve Drink for Kids!

Yield: 1 MilkTail

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/8 cup colored sprinkles (we used gold and red)
  • 3/4 cup organic whole milk (can substitute with almond milk or milk of choice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Place the chocolate chips in a large plate. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir with a spoon until fully melted, creating a smooth chocolate sauce. (Do not over mix.) Place the gold sprinkles in a separate large plate.
  2.  Dip the rim of a plastic cup into the chocolate sauce until evenly coated, then dip the rim of the cup into the gold sprinkles to evenly coat. (If making several of these drinks, repeat, alternating sprinkle colors.)Dip cup in chocolate sauce.
    Dip cup into sprinkles.
  3. Warm the milk in a microwave-safe cup for 30 seconds or just until warm — not hot. Add the cinnamon and beat with a fork to mix well. Pour the cinnamon milk into the cup. Add a fun straw, trimming the bottom with scissors if needed. Serve!
