What is better for fall than hot chocolate? Pumpkin white hot chocolate! It is literally like drinking Pumpkin pie in a cup…
- 3 cups milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ginger
- ⅛ teaspoon cloves
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) white chocolate (I found that I needed to add a little more to get it to the sweetness I wanted. So start with ½ cup and add a little more until it is to your desired sweetness.)
- pinch salt
- Heat the milk, pumpkin puree, spices and vanilla in a sauce pan until it just starts to simmer. Keep stirring and make sure to remove from heat as soon as it simmers so your milk doesn’t scald..
- Add the chocolate (white chocolate chips are fine) and stir until it melts.
- Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon or more spices, if desired
If you like Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte, you will love this (even though it doesn’t have any coffee in it.) And I am thinking that the leftovers (if you had any leftover) would make a really good Pumpkin spice creamer for your coffee!
