Pumpkin Pie Hot Chocolate | Recipe | Blogmas

If there’s something I love at Christmas time is a good hot chocolate, even though it’s summer here in Australia. It can really set the holiday mood, just like a festive candle can, and it’s the perfect companion to setting up your Christmas tree. So when planning my Blogmas schedule it only seemed logical to include a hot chocolate recipe. So I combined my love of hot chocolate with my love of collabing with other bloggers and now we have a wonderful hot chocolate collab with two of my fave babes, Laura and Sharni.We each picked a different flavour hot chocolate to make and I obvi had to go with pumpkin spice. Unfortunately we don’t have a Starbucks in Western Australia and as a result, I have been deprived of the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte. 

Am I a little too excited about a hot chocolate collab? Maybe, but it was delicious and fun and that makes it so worth it.

  1. Pumpkin spice is not the easiest to find in Australia so I've included the ingredients needed to make it.
  2. Make sure to buy the ground version of ingredients, it'll make it a low quicker to throw together.
  3. If you prefer to use a microwave make sure to heat in 30 second increments, stirring after every 30 seconds.

Just a couple of things about the recipe. The mug I used holds a lot more than I thought so  I ended up using 2 and a half cups of milk. The recipe calls for ¼t of pumpkin spice but as someone who loves pumpkin spice I added ½t. The super cute snowman mug was $6 from Coles and there’s also a penguin, Santa and Christmas pudding, all of which are equally adorable and festive.

Don’t forget to check out Sharni’s recipe which is a very Christmassy White Chocolate Peppermint, and Laura’s which is a Nutella Hot Chocolate and something every chocolate lover is bound to adore.
