Chocolate Doused Halloween Oats

And by "chocolate doused", I mean this oatmeal is swimming in chocolate. Are we going to fight over the specifics of chocolate for breakfast? Didn't think so :)

Saturdays are so relaxing in college. Sleeping till 10:30, enjoying my coffee and breakfast in bed... it's a good life.

I had to finish up the rest of my canned pumpkin before it went bad (and before I bought another ;) so I decided to enjoy it in some oats!

Of course, Halloween isn't complete without orange and black EVERYTHING. Go ahead, add as many Halloweeny chips as you want :)

1/2 cup quick oats
3/4-1 cup water (depending on how thick/wet you like your oats)
1/4 cup milk of choice
1/4 t pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 T cocoa powder
1/4 t vanilla extract
Optional: chocolate chips

Combine everything except the milk and chocolate chips in a bowl. Microwave for one minute. Add more pumpkin pie spice depending on your taste preferences. Throw some chocolate chips and milk on the top and dig in!
