Chocolate Pumpkin Butter
Created by yours truly”¦which may or may not be something to brag about. Hey, we can’t win ”˜em all.
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ¼ cup water (I used apple juice and that was a bad choice, stick with water!)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 pinches salt
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir well until all chips are melted. Set aside.
  2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to a small sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat. As it starts to simmer, it will actually start sputtering a lot, so make sure you are constantly stirring. Let it cook for about 5 minutes. It should be steaming throughout this process.
  3. Remove from heat then stir in the chocolate.
  4. Store in refrigerator.
