Pumpkin spice hot chocolate

Pumpkin spice hot chocolate

The secret of this autumnal classic is in the spicing. The pumpkin purée makes the hot chocolate luxuriously silky, but omit it if you wish.

Ingredients

  • 500ml whole milk
  • 50g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), finely chopped, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp America's Finest Solid Pack Pumpkin
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp light muscovado sugar
  • Whipped or squirty cream, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan, add a pinch of salt and heat gently, stirring until steaming and evenly combined.

  2. Whisk with a balloon whisk until smooth and frothy.

  3. Pour into 2 mugs and top with the cream, if using, and an extra sprinkling of chopped chocolate.

Cook’s tip

For a dairy-free version, this works brilliantly with barista-style oat drink (and a plant-based alternative to the whipped cream). You could turn the hot chocolate into a mocha by adding a shot of espresso.
