Pumpkin Pie Spiced White Hot Chocolate-the perfect way to welcome in fall!

Pumpkin Pie Spiced White Hot Chocolate-the perfect way to welcome in fall!

I’m part of this new group, Chocolate Lovers. It’s right up my alley, chocolate, right? Well each month we are supposed to make something using chocolate and a specified ingredient. September was easy, chocolate and apples. I made Crepes with Caramelized Apples and Chocolate Sauce. Totally amazing. And there were so many wonderful recipes shared using Chocolate and Apples. I’ve pinned too many, I’ll never get around to trying them all, but I’ll never be without inspiration.

So for October, they chose Chocolate and Pumpkin. This should be easy. It probably is for every one else in the group but not me. I have a confession to make. Remember, I’m a picky eater. It’s why I let my middle child slide. I been where she’s at.

Pumpkin Pie Spiced White Hot Chocolate-the perfect way to welcome in fall!

I have never had pumpkin, not in any shape or form, in my life. And I’m 46 years old. (Don’t spread my age around, ok?) No pumpkin pie, no pumpkin muffins, no pumpkin anything. If pumpkin was served, I did without. My Grandma used to make Pumpkin Pie and Mince Meat Pie for Thanksgiving dinner, every year. And that was it, no cookies or cake or anything. Guess who didn’t have dessert at Thanksgiving? Me. It took her years to finally decide that I just wasn’t going to budge on the issue and she starting making a dessert just for me.

As I’ve gotten older, I’m less picky but still when ever Pumpkin whatever is served there’s usually something else also on the table that I’d rather have. So I’ve just never gotten around to seeing if maybe, I might like…Pumpkin.

I found this amazing looking Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate from Good Life Eats on Pinterest. Reading Through the recipe I find she uses Pure Pumpkin Puree in the recipe. Nope sorry, I’m not ready to jump into the deep end. Baby steps, I need baby steps.

So here is my first baby step…

Pumpkin Pie Spiced White Hot Chocolate

Yield: 2 servings

Pumpkin Pie Spiced White Hot Chocolate


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice


  1. You can do this in the microwave or on the stove. I'm a stove top kinda girl. Heat milk to a simmer and add in chocolate chips. Continue heating until melted, add in Pumpkin Spice and stir or whisk until blended in. Serve with some fresh whipped cream and a bit of Pumpkin Pie spice on top.



If pumpkin tastes as good as this hot chocolate I’m a new fan. An added bonus, there’s no caffeine in white chocolate so when you can’t sleep at night, instead of a little warm milk, Just make this white hot chocolate and you’ll be sleeping like a baby in no time.

  1. When I was young(er) I also thought I didn’t like pumpkin but I was wrong, wrong, wrong! 🙂 For your next baby step add just a spoonful of pureed pumpkin to something chocolate because those two flavors go great together. In no time at all, there will be a pumpkin fest going on in your house. 🙂 As for this recipe, I LOVE white chocolate…maybe with a spoonful of pureed pumpkin to give this drink some body. 🙂

  2. I love your hot chocolate and especially love your post! What a great way to start the day!

  3. You have never had pumpkin??? Girl you are missing out on some serious goodness…but I still heart you:-) And I love that you sprinkled that yummy drink with the pumpkin pie spice. We will get you there with those baby steps!!!

  4. Oh my goodness, it’s hard to imagine fall without pumpkin baked goods. This white hot chocolate looks like a fabulous place to start!

  5. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel says:

    I can’t believe you’d never had pumpkin! Even so, your first baby step is a delicious one–this hot cocoa looks phenom!

  6. I almost died – no pumpkin ever?! Like….EVER?! Not even a nibble of pie? How could you avoid it – that’s all my Twitter feed is filled with, pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin!! Anyway, I love the idea of pumpkin pie spice rather than actual pumpkin in my drink because if you don’t blend in pumpkin well enough, you have, well, chunks of pumpkin LOL I think i’m going to do this with my next hot chocolate (white or regular)

  14. Love it! We’re huge hot chocolate drinkers in the winter, this is a nice change. 🙂

  15. oh you didn’t!!! I’ve got a bar of white chocolate, and we absolutely love all things pumpkin around here (granted I didn’t ever try it until I married hubs and it’s one of his favorite fall flavors). THanks for sharing on Foodie Friday!

  34. Tiffany@Fizzy Party! says:

    I made this the other night. All excited to have a differnt type of hot chocolate I haven’t had before. I found out I’m not a white hot chocolate fan. The recipe souned so good and thank you for sharing.

  35. How fun is this?! I could sure use a glass of this right now!

  36. Tina Samford says:

    I am so glad I am not the only one who just doesn’t care for pumpkin. For years my family made fun if me because I never would eat pumpkin pie or bread…never could make myself. But this hot chocolate looks delicious. Going to have to try it this weekend with my little girl…who by the way loves everything pumpkin (didn’t get her taste buds from me)

    • I’m working to like Pumpkin but I do love the Pumpkin pie spice! Hope your little one enjoys this, best part, no caffeine so won’t keep her up.
