...No don't you go running away!
Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Latte. It sounds almost too good to be true. No worries, it isn't!
When the weather forecast for your area looks like this..
..You'll be wanting to cozying inside your coffee mug, whether you are at your desk or on your couch... under a warm blanket by a crackling fire.. watching some movie starring Cary Grant. Sigh. How I wish I were doing the latter.
Seeing as a day such as today is the current day, meaning a week day and a work day(hmmm...), I must improvise ways to crawl inside of my mug while at work.
Hence, my result: a pumpkin pecan chocolate latte.
Is this unconventional? Yes.
Does it taste fantastically magical? Pretty darn close.
Did you get weird looks from your co-workers in the coffee room? Abso-freakin-lutely.
Could this recipe be perfected when in one's own kitchen? Yes. But work with what you have people! I am sharing this with you to PROVE that you can have a fun little drink, without having to cross the street and go to Starbucks and pay $5.00 for an 8oz. drink!
Work with me here, people! It takes a little imagination and an open mind!

Source Milk. I prefer mine from a cow, but if you like yours from a soy bean, almond, or goat! Go you!

Put 'em together and what have you got? Bibbidi Bobbidi BOO!
Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Latte
Inspired by: today's miserable weather
Serves: one person in need of a pick-me-up!
1 tsp Pumpkin Pecan Butter (you can also use peanut butter, apple butter, don't go Paula Deen on me and use butter butter, ick!)
1/2 tsp chocolate syrup
1/4 cup milk
A lonely cup of coffee
1. Combine the milk, pumpkin butter and chocolate syrup. Heat in the microwave (if you don't have a stove at work, which most of us don't!). Stir VERY well to combine.
2. Add to your sad and lonely cup of coffee.
3. Run back to your desk. Sniff. And smell. And hide from all the people in your office that think you're a weirdo.
