Serves: 2
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half, divided
  • 3 ounces high quality semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice, plus more for sprinkling on whipped cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream for serving
  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk and ½ cup of Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half. Heat, over medium heat, until bubbles begin to form around the edges.
  2. Lower the heat to medium low, add the chopped chocolate and cocoa powder and whisk until the chocolate is melted. Then, add the maple syrup, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice and whisk to combine. Mixture will be thick.
  3. Add the remaining half and half and vanilla extract and whisk to thin out the hot chocolate to drinking consistency.
