Halloween may be over, but there’s still plenty of time left this fall and winter to enjoy this warming treat. Pumpkin is full of fiber, healthy carbohydrates, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins A & K. This is a dessert that can also be disguised as a breakfast or snack. And. It takes about 5 minutes to make. And. It tastes like a pumpkin-pie in a jar. Creamy, seasonal, with a hint of chocolate. Now, please excuse me while I go lick the jar!
