My mom makes this hot chocolate with pumpkin, spices and white chocolate. We usually drink it on Halloween, but it’s delish at Christmas too. —Sasha King, Westlake Village, CA

"I really liked this, though next time I would strain it so get the orange zest out of it. But the flavor was great. I served it with a New Year's Lucky Almond cake from Taste of Home as well and the orange in the drink complimented the orange glaze on that so it was perfect. However, my fiance did not enjoy this at all stating it was too thick, like syrup. So to each his own. Only reason it got 4 stars was because of that. I would have given it 5!"
