chocolate flavoured pumpkin soup

Pumpkin, pumpkin in my kitchen who is the fairest one of all...?
Mmmmhhhh... A question I´m not really able to answer, but I can tell, who got the tastiest pumpkin soup.
Chocolate flavoured pumpkin soup, sounds crazy and is crazy. Something you don´t want to miss...
I just made it yesterday. I wanted to turn my ordinary pumpkin soup in an extraordinary soup, a fusion of pumpkin and chocolate.
The bittersweet chocolate doesn´t disappear in the soup, it´s a melted dream on top.

The only thing I don´t like about pumpkins is, that it always takes me hundrets of hours for peeling and cutting that pumpkin into small pieces.
Normally I do that with a knife which let me look like Freddy Krueger:-)

I know, I could cook with canned pumpkins, but I like to pick the seeds from the pumpkin.
My kitchen always look like a big mess afterwards, but it´s worth it.
