I love pumpkin hot chocolate almost more than pumpkin spice lattes. This recipe however, was born of necessity and availability far more than my desire to be a fall mamajamma. The purchase of pumpkin spice marshmallows and the only other ingredients I had birthed this deeply flavored pumpkiny fall treat! Almost instant, and not quite pumpkin enough to call it “pumpkin spice” hot cocoa = Shut Up It’s Fall Hot Cocoa.
Heat 1 1/2 c almond milk to almost boil
combine 3T unsweetended cocoa, 2T light brown sugar, 1/4t cinnamon, 1/8t nutmeg
add to hot milk and stir until blended
top with pumpkin spice marshmallows
allow the marshmallows to melt a bit and then sip and enjoy!
