Pumpkin Cocoa (Made with Melted Ice Cream!)


There’s this thing I have about pumpkin. I LOVE it the freak like crazycakes. It’s just so gol-durned good. And when autumn hits, anything pumpkin that I can put in my mouth is game for utter devourment. Don’t judge. It’s a pumpkin thing.

So, when my bestie, Eldon and I were pulling together videos for this months HisXHers episodes, I knew I had to take my traditional Melted Ice Cream Cocoa and turn it into a Pumpkin flavored hot toddy. You won’t believe how good this recipe is, how fun it is to make, or how deeelish it tastes with a shot of rum. Hello, happiness. Pumpkin is thy name.
