The Worst Hot Chocolate These Lips Have Ever Touched

No offense to the lady who put this recipe online.  I actually can't even bring myself to link to the recipe, because I don't want to defame this woman or discredit her blog.  But it was awful. AWFUL.  I took one sip and spit it out. It was awful. I even double checked the recipe to make sure I hadn't skipped an ingredient or put in the wrong measurements, but I followed it perfectly. I'm so sad.  I was so excited about pumpkin hot chocolate.  Really just excited about hot chocolate in general.  Yuck. Sad.

The recipe was unsweetened almond milk, pumpkin puree, cocoa powder, maple syrup and almond extract. Sounded beautiful. Smelled beautiful. Tasted horrible. Sad.


  1. This made me chuckle. Actually, pumpkin puree, in anything that is a beverage, sounds despicable to me. I have a recipe for broccoli cheddar soup that I threw some pumpkin into the other day, and it was delicious. If you need ideas for your pumpkin month and want to try it, let me know. It's one of those "can't taste the pumpkin at all" type deals. Although, I do think the pumpkin added a smooth mellowness and depth of flavor that would have been lacking without it. So, just let me know if you want the recipe, and I'll send it on over.

  2. Yes, send me the recipe! I need a few more recipes to finish off my month.

  3. I tried to copy and paste it, but it wouldn't work. I will try to send the link:

  4. Also, it is good if you substitute a cup of Pinot Grigio for a cup of the chicken broth.
