Why You'll Love This Recipe

Light & Spicy: This Boozy Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is warm and comforting. I use milk chocolate as oppose to cocoa powder or dark chocolate so it's incredibly light, which pairs so well with the pumpkin spice.

Homemade Whipped Cream: I make my own Homemade Whipped Cream and the whipped cream just melts into the cocoa, which is always my favorite part! If you take the extra time to make Homemade Whipped Cream, this will be the best hot chocolate with pumpkin spice ever! I love serving this with a cinnamon stick as you can stir it up and add a bit more spice to your cocktail.

Boozy: If you are trying to decide between a cocktail and hot chocolate, you don't have to with this recipe for Boozy Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate! I love hot chocolate with pumpkin spice, but this really takes it to the next level! This makes the perfect fall drink for a cozy night in or even to serve at a Halloween party.

Why Choose Organic Ingredients?

You all know I’m a huge organic advocate. And I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good. Otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else.

Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones. Therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Additionally, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! I linked all the exact ingredients I used when making this recipe in the Ingredients section. You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip — hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post on Food Labels and What They Mean.
