Chocolate Pumpkin Butter

I was inspired to make this butter from one of my favorite blogs, Oh She Glows. In light of fall, I thought it would be the perfect thing to make and have in the morning on top of toast. If you're a fan of pumpkin pie, you'll love this recipe. I serve it on top of blueberry toast. It would also taste great on top of some pancakes!

1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree
3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
3-4 tbsp maple syrup, to taste

Combine pumpkin, apple juice, spices, and sugar in a large pot and stir well. Cover with lid and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Sift in cocoa powder and stir well. Cover with lid, keep ajar, and simmer for about 35 minutes, stirring often, until it is thick and looks like butter.

Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup.
