Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate


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. 1. Heat cream and milk in a pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot but not boiling.
  2. 2. In a medium sized bowl, pour heated cream and milk over white chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted.
  3. 3. Add vanilla extract and pumpkin spice.
  4. 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.
