Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate 

I love making homemade hot chocolate and I also made some homemade Hot Apple cider that was unbelievable.  I thought it was time to join in on the pumpkin spice everything, so I made Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate.  

This is chocolaty with a hint of pumpkin spice it was delicious. I hope you enjoy.

How to Make

Step 1: In a saucepan you will pour your milk in and heat on medium to low heat. Make sure the milk does not boil. 

Step 2: Once warmed stir in your pumpkin purée, cocoa powder and spices. Whisk the cocoa mixture until nice and mixed. 

Step 3: You will mix up your cocoa until warmed fully then ladle onto mugs and top with whipped cream.

Variations to Serving Up Pumpkin Cocoa

  • Dollop of whipped cream 
  • Serve over a glass of ice for a cold cocoa 
  • Sprinkle with pumpkin spice 
  • Drizzle on caramel sauce 
  • Blend with ice to make a frozen hot cocoa
  • Etc 

There are number of ways you can change up your pumpkin spice cocoa! 


How to Store Leftover Homemade Hot Chocolate 

You can store your leftover hot chocolate in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 


When you go to drink some just stir well to incorporate the hot chocolate. Then you wan warm up a glass in the microwave or even a pan on stove. 


Can I Double The Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious pumpkin spice drink to serve up your guests? Make a double or even triple batch of this homemade drink. 


I have made a big batch and then placed it in the slow cooker on the keep warm setting. Then just stir here and there to ensure no burning. 


Is Pumpkin Purée and Pumpkin Pie Mix The Same Thing

Pumpkin purée is canned pumpkin whereas pumpkin pie mix is a mix of ingredients used to make a pumpkin pie. 


The two are not interchangeable and you need to make sure you use pumpkin purée. 


Or if you like you can make homemade pumpkin purée to use in the hot chocolate. I tend to use canned since this recipe doesn’t require a ton. 


Why This Recipe Works

  • Basic ingredients is all it takes to make a rich and creamy homemade hot chocolate. 
  • Minimal effort in the prep of even the cooking process. Just stir and monitor a sweet pumpkin infused drink. 
  • Easy cleanup when you finish cooking. I will never complain if I don’t dirty the whole kitchen. 
  • Whip the whole drink up in one pot! Don’t dirty the whole kitchen!
