Crockpot Brown Butter Marinara Sauce
It’s kind of like Starbucks, but BETTER.
At least I think so.
Although, in full disclosure I have never actually had a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yeah, never. I am just not a coffee drinker….yet.
I may be turning into one, not sure.
I love the smell of coffee, I love the idea of coffee, but coffee itself?
I have never been able to down it without shaking. Blame my mom who, has never been a coffee drinker either. I know I have told you this before, but she actually drinks hot chocolate… like coffee. Yup, that means a cup or two every single morning. She never skips it and if she does she honestly gets withdrawal headaches. No joke, you do not want to be around her if she has not had her hot chocolate. Let’s just say it is not all that much fun.
My dad on the other hand loves his coffee.
But he is not fancy. He actually likes the cheap stuff (think Walmart Great Value brand – a little treat for him is Costco’s version) and he drinks it as black as black can get. No cream, no sugar.
I was kind of tired of hearing/reading about these Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
I mean really, it seems every last person is talking about them, tweeting about them, instagraming them, facebooking them. Yeah you get it.
They are popular.
The other day, after reading this post (best part of every single Tuesday) and visiting this amazing recipe for a traditional pumpkin spice latte I just gave in. I needed to make one. I need to try one for myself. I needed to see what all the hype was about.
I just needed to.
But then, I went to get out all the ingredients and as I was pulling out the vanilla I dropped a can of coconut milk right on my big toe.
That hurt like heck and I then proceeded to jump around for good two minutes singing “owe, owe, owe, owe”. The I was like oh, wait. TOASTED COCONUT CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!
It was happening.
Oh yes. Now THAT I knew I would like.
And I did.
It’s awesome and the perfect warm and cozy fall treat that is ready in like maybe eight minutes – tops. It’s freaking awesome!
Toasted coconut and chocolate make everything better, but especially on Friday. It’s a Friday treat for sure!

I never thought of adding coconut to pumpkin – looks fantastic! Do you feel pretty full afterwards though? It looks heavy!
You only feel full if you add the amounts of whipped cream and chocolate drizzle I did. LOL! But a normal serving is perfect!
