Sweet Pumpkin and Chocolate Soup Recipe

This delicious pumpkin and chocolate soup is more of a dessert than a savory dish. You might think that chocolate and pumpkin is an odd combination but this delicious soup is like a comforting hot drink and it is especially good just before bedtime. If you are looking for an unusual dessert or a way to use up some pumpkins, this dessert soup is ideal.

You can adjust the ingredients however, you like. Some people like to reduce the amount of sugar and chocolate but others love the extra sweet flavor. You can use apple juice instead of the apple cider if you have it. The flavor of the soup is very similar, whichever you use.

This pumpkin and chocolate soup is ideal for adults or children and it is very easy to make. The spiced pumpkin smells beautiful while it roasts and will make your whole kitchen smell mouthwateringly good. This soup is the perfect solution when you wish to make a dessert which gets talked about. Serve this at the end of the evening after your dinner party and people will remember the event fondly and probably ask you for the recipe too. This warming, soothing dessert is served in cups like a beverage rather than bowls, and as you sip it you will be able to taste the pumpkin, chocolate, apple and spices. Pumpkin and cacao were enjoyed as savory ingredients in the Aztec age but today pumpkin is used in both sweet and savory recipes while chocolate can be used to make a cake or mousse, but it can also be added to a chili con carne for richness, so why not combine these ingredients to make a deliciously different dessert soup? Serve it dark and rich, like in the photo, or add Half & Half if you prefer a creamier finish.
