click-for-recipe-julie2Despite the warm weather that is scheduled to happen in the coming weeks, I have been immersing myself in all the fall things one could imagine.

Well…kind of.

Technically I haven’t done any fall-ish activities, such as going to a pumpkin patch, or going to pick apples. However, I have been drinking my fair share of pumpkin lattes, packing in as many slices of pumpkin bread and apple desserts as humanly possible, and have been burning fall candles like they’re going out of style.

And, we decorated! There are candles, pumpkins, and leaves all over the place (tastefully, of course ?), and in my personal opinion, things have never looked better!

 

This homemade pumpkin hot chocolate recipe uses real pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices to add a fall spin to a classic drink!I was at a coffee shop the other day, and they had pumpkin hot chocolate on their menu, which sounded extremely intriguing. As much as I adore coffee, there is still something incredibly comforting about a warm cup of hot chocolate piled high with whipped cream.

The combination of pumpkin with the rich chocolate is pretty much liquid gold, especially for pumpkin lovers like me. If fall could taste like an actual drink, I think this would be the one. I know, I know—it seems somewhat blasphemous to even suggest that another drink could reign supreme to the pumpkin latte, but, this was good.

It was very, very good.

This homemade pumpkin hot chocolate recipe uses real pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices to add a fall spin to a classic drink!I was on a mission to recreate the flavors of this drink so I could enjoy it from the warmth of my own home. After a few trials, I am very pleased with my final results. This hot chocolate is packed with flavor without being too rich, and the drink is extra decadent with the addition of whipped cream.

Plus, this is extremely easy to put together! Homemade hot chocolate takes just a few minutes to make. Even with the additions of pumpkin and spices, this can be whipped up at a moment’s notice.

Give this a try if you love pumpkin! 🙂

    I like pumpkin, so this sounds really good. I haven’t seen pumpkin puree before, I’ll have to look for it.
