For Halloween, I’m going to make the Vegan Candy Corn recipe that was on the FP Blog earlier and this drink, and snuggling up with my kitty to watch non-scary movies!

This sounds delicious! I plan to use it for thanksgiving too!!
How big is a serving? Should i double or even triple the ingredients for a party of 12-18 adults?

This was amazing. We served 8 adults with very differing taste preferences and everyone loved it. I hollowed out a large white pumpkin to use as a serving bowl, and rimmed the glasses with sugared pumpkin spice beforehand. Everyone was feeling super cozy!
