No Bones About It

Sometimes the concept of modern technology goes terribly wrong.

Case in point: programmable thermostats. While it might be nice to wake up to a warm house or lounge around in shorts in the middle of winter, a 70° house completely annihilates the purpose of enjoying a frothy mug of hot chocolate; drinking piping hot chocolate while being piping hot... not so much fun.

It's not that I'm suggesting everyone go around indoors with wool ski masks all fall and winter, I'm merely suggesting every once in a while we open up all the windows, go for a drive and then come back and brew up a pot of steaming pumpkin spiced hot chocolate.

Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate

Line your favorite mug with a few pumpkin marshmallow peeps
Throw in a few pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses (available at Target)
Toast a few pecans in butter and brown sugar, and blanket them over the top
Spray a generous dollop of whipping cream over the concoction
Pour your favorite recipe for Hot Chocolate over the goodies, increasing the water or milk by double
Stir to melt the pumpkin kisses
And Sip your way over to Pammy's blog for a great trick on using up those leftover holiday coasters.

Adding peeps to any hot chocolate has got to be heaven!! Lukcily in Utah it is cold and I can have hot chocolate every morning.

Chelsea Pratt said...

Mmmm. Looks so good. Anytime you can add even more sweets to an already sweet drink makes it that much more appealing!

Gabriel Olson said...

I just happen to have some peeps. Time to go make some hot chocolate!

It is sweet, but when you increase the water or milk by double in your hot chocolate, it helps to dilute so it's just right! Enjoy!

Holy Cow -- are you sure that's hot chocolate? Looks more like chocolate soup -- looks FABULOUS! Thanks for posting!

So cute! I wish I could find seasonal Hershey Kisses nearby, but alas, only original and caramel are available to me.
I think these would be perfect for my halloween party this year!

YUM! That hot chocolate sounds good! I'm sending that recipe to my girlfriend who is having a halloween party and I think that would be great to serve when all the guests have left and we sit around and tell ghost stories. Such a great idea!
