Pumpkin spiced hot chocolate

 
Ever since it became fall, pumpkin recipes have been popping up left and right. Classic dishes are being reinvented with the addition of pumpkin, from soups to main courses to desserts. Well, I’m one of those suckers who are drawn to those pumpkin recipes, not only because they sound delicious, but also because it reminds me of this glorious season we’re in. This pumpkin spiced hot chocolate is no exception from the list of pumpkin recipes, and it’s just as delicious, if not more so, than the classic hot chocolate!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

When I used to prepare lunches and snacks at a large company, they loved the hot chocolate especially during the cold days. I prepared the classic hot chocolate and Mexican hot chocolate, but I wish I had thought of pumpkin spiced hot chocolate! This recipe is divine and incredibly easy to prepare.

When heating the milk, make sure not to bring the hot chocolate to a roaring boil; no one wants to taste scalded milk, it’s not tasty. Whisk well to make sure the cocoa is incorporated in the milk and heat. 

Finish the hot chocolate with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and mini-marshmallows. The marshmallows are optional but who doesn’t love little marshmallows floating in their hot chocolate? Nothing beats a hot cup of hot cocoa with a hint of pumpkin on a rainy day!

    Soo I’m confused I wana make this recipe but don’t see where to combine a few of the ingredients you have listed ?

      It’s listed in step one. All you do is combine the milk with the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder in a medium pot and whisk until combined. (The milk-cocoa powder means all the ingredients listed starting from the milk to the cocoa powder in the ingredient list). The whipped cream, cinnamon and marshmallows are all toppings you put on the hot chocolate after it’s done
