I wanted to make this into a Pumpkin Spice Mocha--what I did was use coffee in place of the whipping cream. I also topped it with Cool Whip. Good but could use more pumpkin flavor. I'll try this again tomorrow but increase the amount of pumpkin puree by a couple tablespoons and re-review. Read More

It was a little bit too much chocolate. Otherwise the recipe was good and we liked the whipped cream and the nutmeg on the top. Read More

I made this yesterday and it is actually pretty good. I made a 1/2 recipe and just microwaved the ingredients. I realized too late that I accidentally tripled the pumpkin spice but it didn't seem to be a problem. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I even added the optional topping of whipped cream cinnamon and nutmeg. I couldn't really taste the pumpkin puree after I added it being such a small amount. The taste is good just it's kind of sweet for my tastes. However I can see anyone that likes these flavors to enjoy this. Read More

Oh my! This is sooooo good. I used a whole heaping tablespoon of homemade pumpkin purée from kuri pumpkins. I also used dark chocolate and homemade whipped cream. I then proceeded to pour it in one cup and drink it all myself. I ain t sharin this with anyone. This drink will turn you into the Grinch who stole the hot chocolate. Thank you for this recipe.

Love this! I am a pumpkin spice addict so I added 2 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin puree instead of 1 1/2. Other than that it was absolutely delicious. Read More

LOVED this! I used evaporated skim milk instead of heavy whipping cream so good! I might try adding more pumpkin puree to make the pumpkin taste stronger. Read More
