How to make Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

To make this hot chocolate, simply add the milk, heavy cream, chocolate, and cocoa powder to a microwave-safe bowl or jug. 

Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth, and the mixture is hot.

Pour into mugs or heat-proof glasses, top with whipped cream and grated chocolate, and serve immediately.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
