Hot and Spicy Pumpkin Recipe 7

I was going to make another pumpkin recipe, but I lost track of time and made this one instead. SO WORTH IT!. Chocolate and pumpkin and drinkable? Yes, please!

Pumpkin Hot Chocolate from Smithfield

I changed up the recipe and used vanilla soy milk because one of the girls in my small group is lactose-intolerant and I would hate to deprive anyone of hot chocolate! It was super rich and chocolate-y, almost like sipping chocolate and tasted a little like pumpkin, but mostly like the wonderful pumpkin pie spices that were added. I didn't really measure those spices out and just used the shaker to pour some in because I love the mix. It was so good! It has put me in the mood for hot chocolate more often, but in my experience, it serves 4 chocoholics and maybe 6 smaller portions. 

Definitely a keeper- it used mostly ingredients I usually have on hand, but I did have to get more milk so its feasible to whip it up in the fall season when pumpkin is abundant.  It was a wonderful warm recipe for fall (even though its not very cold here yet).
