Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
This is a hot chocolate for all ages. The adults will be impressed you spiced up a wintertime classic, and the kids won't even notice that you snuck veggies into their favorite chocolaty drink.
Mix pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie Spice in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly for 1 to 2 min. until fragrant. Add 1/4 cup of the milk and stir until smooth. Add both packets of hot chocolate mix (3 oz. total) from the Classic Hot Chocolate box. Add another 1/2 cup of the milk and stir into a smooth paste. Stir in remaining milk plus sugar if using. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until hot and just starting to bubble around the sides. Pour into mugs and top each with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice.
