Irish Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

 The feeling of Autumn has finally reached us here in North Carolina!
Which means... pumpkin spice, comfort food, cozy sweaters, boots, and Hot Chocolate! :)

We've been working on finishing a few projects around here lately..
(farmhouse dining room table, painting projects, and some built in shelves I need to post)
and while pumpkin / autumn seasonal beers are pretty awesome,
it's just not something that we want while we're working.
Which is probably a great thing for our projects! haha

So last night while we were working on our Farmhouse table project, 
I whipped us up some Irish Hot Chocolate with Pumpkin Spice!
It was just what us "big kids" needed to keep on going. 

I followed my standard hot chocolate recipe, 
but added some chocolate chips, bailey's and pumpkin spice. 

I combined all the ingredients into a medium sauce pan, 
over medium heat,
and whisked it until warm and frothy.

I used some vegan chocolate chips for my recipe, 
but any chocolate can be used.  Hersey's minis are perfect to pop into the pot, 
and I don't know about you, but I always have some chocolate stashed away somewhere.
It's not necessary for the recipe, but since I use almond milk, 
the chocolate really makes the drink more creamy and rich.

Also, I use maple syrup to sweeten my hot chocolate,
but sugar or another alternative sweetener works fine too. 


PS- This coco is good to snuggle up with as well. 

I made it this morning without the Irish Cream and watched Frozen...
Do you wanna build a snowman? ;)

Seriously, just big kids! haha
