Em's notes for this recipe:
My kids call the vanilla base "Hot Vanilla" and drink it as a sweet before bed treat or after a cold day outside like they would Hot Chocolate.
Great way to use up that last little bit of pumpkin left in the can after making a recipe. I often make a mugful in place of coffee in the evening when I don't really want caffeine.

Directions

1
Stir all ingredients together in a heavy bottomed saucepan. For vanilla milk omit pumpkin. Cook over medium heat until warmed through but DO NOT BOIL.
Taste to adjust sweetness or spice just before mixture reaches desired temperature.
2
Serve hot with a dusting of cinnamon. Yummy!
