Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate

I have been on a pumpkin kick. The web is just overflowing with fabulous pumpkin recipes to try. I had white chocolate on the brain this weekend, so this seemed like a natural combination. Recipe courtesy of Tidy Mom. I did modify the original recipe, I probably added closer to 3 ounces of chocolate because I couldn't taste the chocolate at all, but I had to substitute white chocolate chips (1/3 cup=2ounces) and added 1/2 a cup. I also sprinkled in some Truvia, because it seemed to need a little more sweet (for my infamous tooth!)

MMMMMmmmmm, like pumpkin pie in a cup! I knew there was a reason I had saved those Princess House  mugs! It just wouldn't have been the same in a plain jane coffee mug :) 

Please pretend that says Pumpkin Pie Spice......I was SURE I put some in my grocery cart :/

Stir everything together except the Ready Whip. I recommend a taste test and adjust according to taste, you might want to add more chocolate or some sweetener.....

Recipe: Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

SummaryJust like pumpkin pie in a mug!


  • 1.5 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 ounces white chocolate (roughly chopped)


  1. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine milk, pumpkin and spices. Cook string constantly until just simmering.
  2. Remove from heat and add chocolate ( reserve some for garnish)
  3. Just before serving, top each mug with a generous mound of whipped cream, a few shavings of white chocolate, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Serve immediately.
