If you’re like me and find yourself ordering several pumpkin spice lattes during the fall, then you’re bound to like this dessert. It has all the flavors of your favorite fall latte, it’s warm, and it’s even baked right into a mug. I know! Right? In the recent years when I think of fall, I think of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. They just make me happy and scream, “It’s fall!”

The best part of this new recipe happens to be you can make this whole dessert, start to finish, in just five minutes. For me, this means more time with the family doing our favorite fall-things like cuddling by a warm fire watching movies on a Sunday afternoon. It’s the simple things, right? This recipe would be wonderful to have on hand for the upcoming Thanksgiving break.
