  • 2 cups SilkĀ® Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa (100% cacao)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice**
  • 4 ounces (about 1/3 cup full) dairy-free dark chocolate, chopped or chips (optional)
  • 2-4 tablespoons demerara or granulated sugar
  • mini marshmallows (topping)
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce (topping)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup (topping), optional


  • In a medium saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium-high heat. Whisk in cocoa and pumpkin pie spice until no lumps remain.
  • Then whisk in dark chocolate (if desired, but it will make drink thicker and creamier) and sugar. Let cook, whisking frequently, until mixture is smooth and chocolate had melted (approximately 4 minutes).
  • Divide hot chocolate among 2 mugs. Top with mini marshmallows and drizzle with caramel sauce (1 tablespoon per mug) and optionally with chocolate syrup (1 tablespoon per mug). Enjoy dairy-free caramel pumpkin spice hot chocolate!
