As soon as there's a cool breeze in the air, I think of my mother. She served pumpkin pie with homemade hot chocolate. This recipe brings those two amazing scents, and her, back to life for me. To turn your hot chocolate into creamy pumpkin mocha, stir 2 teaspoons of instant coffee into the hot chocolate before adding whipped cream. —Felicity La Rue, Palmdale, California
