With the first day of Autumn upon us, my taste buds have been having daydreams about pumpkin spice mochas. After some digging online I found a recipe I had to try.
I followed this recipe and added the spices directly to my coffee as instructed, but I could still taste the powder a bit. I am posting the recipe as written, and then I will tell you what I did this morning that was YUMMY.
Pumpkin Pie Mocha
Mix all and enjoy!
* Pumpkin Pie Spice
What I did… I mixed the unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves and ground nutmeg and put them in a sealed container. I took 1 tsp. of this mixture and added it directly to the coffee grounds and brewed the pot (I only did a 10 cup pot. If I do a full 12 cup I will probably do 1 1 /2 tsp.)
I also found this recipe that I want to try, but haven’t had the chance yet. It sounds just as yummy .
