Pumpkin Spiced Latte

There are many recipes out there for pumpkin spice latte.
 This one has something special in it.... A pumpkin spice kiss.
It also has the wonderful flavour of  Don Tomas Coffee.
 It just makes it a little more special.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

5 oz evaporated milk
1 tbsp condensed milk
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 pumpkin spice Hershey kiss
1 cup strong coffee ( I used Don Tomas Coffee)
cool whip or whipped cream (optional)
nutmeg to sprinkle on top (optional)

Place evaporated milk, condensed milk, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice in small pot.  Whisk and heat over medium heat until milk becomes frothy.  I whisk the milk the whole time.  In coffee cup place a pumpkin spice hershey kiss, add milk mixture and hot coffee until cup is filled.  Whisk again to melt the pumpkin spice hershey kiss.  Add cool whip or whipped cream if desired and sprinkle with nutmeg.  Enjoy!

* If the pumpkin spice Hershey kiss doesn't melt completely.. that is ok, It tastes good at the end of your coffee.

I was given a sample of Don Tomas Coffee along with other members of Foodie Friends Friday to review.  As I don't drink that much coffee anymore I decided to make a speciality coffee and this is what I came up with.  I was pleasantly surprised of the robust taste that Don Tomas Coffee has and I made the coffee very strong to put into this drink.  I find that many coffees if you make them strong, they are bitter but not this one.  It has a great flavour and wonderful taste.  I will be doing a more thorough review of this coffee when Foodie Friends Friday has their Coffee Party on November 16th.  My plans are also to do some baking with this coffee and I am also going to have guest over, so that I can serve it and get more reviews.
