Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” – Thomas Edison

Can we just talk about how brilliant Thomas Edison was? I mean, come on. He called it waaaay before anyone else did.

On a totally unhealthy (but maybe semi-healthy?) note, I made some cocoa for you. In honor of… my birthday.

And yes, that amount of whipped cream is totally necessary. Birthday girls get extra whipped cream.
