I know that you're probably thinking that chocolate and pumpkin together doesn't seem like a very plausible combo, and before I tried this recipe I was right there with you. Now, I'm a convert. Not only do chocolate and pumpkin present the opportunity for a perfect fall color palate, but the flavors, all earthy and mellow and sweet, play off each other in a perfectly subtle and harmonious way. This is a mocha pumpkin latte, in pie form. More
