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.
Add the pumpkin, vanilla extract, and spices, and whisk until fully combined. Warm up again if necessary.
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.
