Pumpkin Spice Latte in a Crockpot for Parties

Great for fall, easy in the crockpot  for guests or large parties, a nice knock off of famous coffee shops.

2 cups milk
2 tablespoons fresh or canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon ( I use a teaspoon but I love cinnamon!), 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, pinch of ground ginger
1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
Whipped cream for garnish, cinnamon sticks or cinnamon sugar for top of whipped cream
 I used a 5quart crockpot, but you can use whatever you have, as small as a 1.5. This makes two huge mugs.

You will have to experiment on the spice content, I love cinnamon and will usually use more than the recipe calls for.

Add the coffee or espresso with the milk to the crockpot. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
Pour into mugs ith a soup ladle, and garnish with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and cinnamon sticks.

Optional:  add a shot of cinnamon schnapps to the top of latte before adding the cream. This recipe can be doubled or tripled.  I made a triple batch for 10 people that had at least two cups a piece.

For using up the extra pumpkin, try these  mini pumpkin turnovers... or best ever mini pumpkin whoopie pies with chocolate chip filling.
