I love pumpkin pie and I could eat it anytime of the year. I also love coming home after a long walk on the beach to a hot cup of hot chocolate. So why not combine these two comfort foods and make a delicious autumn beverage!
3 cups whole milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces white chocolate (roughly chopped)
1. Heat the milk, pumpkin puree, and spices in a sauce pan until it just starts to simmer and remove form heat.
2. Add the chocolate and stir until it has melted.
3. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon.
*Makes 4 servings
