Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

Okay, I hope you guys are ready to INDULGE on this gorgeous fall Friday, because we have some chocolatey goodness about to happen up in here. 

Brace yourself for a pumpkin spice hot chocolate recipe that is going to knock your socks off! You guys know about my love for all things pumpkin (evident in this pecan pumpkin butter squares post), so it is only fitting that we add a pumpkin drink to our recipe repertoire.

Starbucks Frappucino Bottles

We even crafted some cute “milk jug” bottles to go along with this yummy drink. We took some Starbucks Frappucino bottles, colorful ribbon, hot glue and in no time at all we had an adorable vessel for our pumpkin-y cocoa.

Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
This should make about 2 drinks. Also note that this is by no means a healthy drink. But it’s always nice to indulge every now and then. Everything in moderation, right?
Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
-1/2 cup milk
-1/3 cup whipping cream
-1/4 milk chocolate chips
-1 t. cocoa powder
-1.5 t. pumpkin puree
-1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice
-whipped cream
Salted Caramels and Hot Chocolate
Whisk milk, cream, chocolate chips, and cocoa powder together in a saucepan over medium heat until the chocolate is melted and everything is smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Stir in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. Pour into “milk jugs”, top with whipped cream and sprinkle on more pumpkin spice.
sea salt caramels
If you’re feeling extra indulgent (hey, we don’t judge), you can pair this hot cocoa with our favorite sea salt caramels. These are little bites of heaven. Seriously.so.good. (We buy them at Costco.)
