This Boozy Pumpkin Pie Hot Chocolate is the perfect cozy treat for a chilly day! It's super simple to make, naturally sweetened with a little maple syrup, and it even has a little pumpkin purée in it! It's spiked with coffee liqueur, a touch of pumpkin pie spice, and it's topped off with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick!
Add the water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until smooth and no lumps remain. Add the milk, dark chocolate, pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and salt and bring to a simmer. Whisk frequently, until mixture is smooth and chocolate is melted, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the Kahlua.
Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream, a cinnamon stick, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and sea salt if desired. Serve immediately!
*I used Kahlua here, but feel free to use whatever coffee liqueur you like!
*This recipe is also delicious if you make homemade whipped cream and spike it with more coffee liqueur!
