Pumpkin Spiced Hot Cocoa. Yum. It’s what most New Englander’s consider the start to fall. We’re obsessed.
Falling leaves, cooler weather (sweater weather, to be exact), makes me want everything pumpkin. Bring on the cookies, pies, breads, whoopie pies, and lattes. Which is why when I was craving a hot cocoa and pumpkin at the same time, I decided this was the best way to get my fix.
I’d love to say I spent hours on this one, but honestly, I was just in the mood for something with a pumpkin spice taste, without having to leave the house. I also recently learned that there is a spice blend called pumpkin spice. Could it make fall any easier? So what did I do? I decided to take it for a spin.
The pumpkin spice seasoning is basically a mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. All you need to do is add a 1/4 of a teaspoon of pumpkin spice seasoning to hot cocoa and you’ve got yourself some pumpkin spice hot cocoa. Too easy!
