Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate


1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
pinch salt
1/3 cup very hot water
3.5 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
whipped cream to serve on top


  • Mix together cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a medium-sized saucepan. Stir in water. Heat over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Stirring constantly, so it doesn’t burn,  allow to simmer two minutes.
  • Pour in remaining ingredients and cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Do not boil. Carefully pour into 4 mugs and top with whipped cream.



This was a yummy treat! The pumpkin flavor isn’t too overwhelming, it’s just enough to this classic drink a new twist!
