Here’s how to make our Creamy Pumpkin Hot Cocoa:
2 cups new Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half
2 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice berries
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Dash of ground ginger
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
In a small saucepan, combine the new Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half, whole cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and whole allspice berries. Allow the milk to warm and the spices to steep.
Add the pumpkin puree and cook 1-2 minutes more.
Using a fine mesh strainer, remove the whole spices from the creamy pumpkin mixture.
Add the ground spices and brown sugar to the mixture, along with the chocolate. Whisk to combine until smooth and creamy, about 5-7 minutes.
Serve hot with whipped cream.
