♥Halloween Cocoa touched with Pumpkin Spice♥

When the frightful chilly weather begins blowing in, there’s nothin' better than a hot cup of cocoa to warm your bones! Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa is a perfect fit for the season. Have a cup after a romp in the leaves or before curling up to watch your favorite spooky DVD. Either way this Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa recipe will warm your autumn evenings and keep the chill at bay.
  • 6 cups of whole milk
  • ½ lb. of dark chocolate bits
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • oodles of whipped cream, the real stuff☺
  • cinnamon and cinnamon sticks, optional
Heat milk to almost boiling. Place chocolate chips into mugs and add 1/4 traspoon of spices,  mixing thoroughly. Pour in hot milk and stir well with a small whisk making a little foam on the top. Load on the whip cream. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste and add a cinnamon stick for a little pizazz!
