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.
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…

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.
