Ahhh, fall is here! It’s one of my favorite times of the year! Here in Michigan we are surrounded by beautiful trees with leaves of various colors, cooler temperatures and, like most places, a plethora of pumpkin recipes! We love visiting apple orchards, which are a popular thing here in Michigan. I like to make this drink and put it in a thermos to take as a special treat when we are there. It’s the perfect seasonal drink to help us stay warm and it tastes amazing! This pumpkin spice hot chocolate is a dream and incredibly easy to make!
Super Easy Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
September 26, 2015 by · 14 Comments
1 cup of milk of choice
2 Tbsp of pumpkin puree (canned is fine)
3 Tbsp of hot cocoa mix
1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (I get mine from Trade Joe’s)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Whipped cream and sprinkles (optional)
Heat the milk, cocoa mix and vanilla (either microwave or stove top). Don’t bring it to a boil. Stir in the pumpkin puree and the pumpkin spice. Return to microwave or stove top and heat it once again.
Pour into a large mug and dress it up with whipped cream, sprinkles or even marshmallows… Add some grated chocolate if desired.
Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?! It’s easy just like I promised! 😉 This drink is definitely one of my favorite fall treats and it’s perfect for all of these upcoming cool nights!
