Hello Tatertots and Jello friends! It’s Melissa from No. 2 Pencil again, and today I’m sharing a yummy fall drink with you. This Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate is an absolutely delicious treat. It’s a rich and creamy homemade white hot chocolate with a touch of warm pumpkin pie spice. Perfect for getting cozy with a on a crisp fall night.
If you’ve never made real homemade hot chocolate, this is a great recipe to start with. You will never go back to hot cocoa packages!
Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate
1 cup of heavy cream
2 cups of milk – I used skim milk
1 cup of good quality white chocolate chips, Ghirardelli recommended
1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
Whipped cream and additional pumpkin spice to sprinkle on top.
1. Heat cream and milk in a pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot but not boiling.
2. In a medium sized bowl, pour heated cream and milk over white chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted.
3. Add vanilla extract and pumpkin spice.
4. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice.
A few tips:
Keep a close eye on the milk and cream mixture – once it is hot, turn off the flame. It doesn’t need to come to a boil.
Use good quality white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate. The flavor and sweetness of white chocolate really varies. I have found the Ghirardelli white chocolate chips to have the best taste and have been able to find them at almost every grocery store.
