A bit of caramel popcorn sprinkled over top of this shake is a nice touch. Regular buttery salted pumpkin would also taste great with the sweet chocolatey shake. Use the ganache recipe here if you want to make the chocolate sauce for this recipe yourself – just don’t chill it too long or it will harden. You could also use nut butter instead of nutella in this recipe, peanut or almond butter would both be great.
