Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate Fall Drink Recipe

11:35 AM

 How to make a pumpkin white hot chocolate.  This makes two servings, but it can easily be adapted to make in a slow cooker for a crowd.  This is an easy recipe, and it's absolutely delicious.


I've found my new favorite drink!  A pumpkin white hot chocolate.  


This is the perfect fall drink for kids or adults.  It's crazy delicious and crazy easy to make.  





I adapted the recipe so you can make it for two servings, but you can also double it or even quadruple it to make in a slow cooker for a crowd.


If you're serving it to adults, you can make it a boozy pumpkin white hot chocolate with Kahlua or bourbon.


Like all of my coffee and drink recipes, this can be sugar free or keto.  You can even make it with a nondairy milk like oat milk or almond milk if you are dairy free.


Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate Recipe (Sugar Free, Keto)


Last year, the Cinderella Latte got popular.  You order a PSL from Starbuck's and add a pump of white chocolate.  It's a secret menu item that made its rounds on Instagram.


I had to try one for research purposes of course, then I went home and made my own white chocolate pumpkin coffee creamer


That creamer is amazing.  I've been known to make it all year.  It's also good for making a cold brew latte.  Yum!







Milk Choice


You can use cow's milk, heavy whipping cream, almond milk, or oat milk.  It's easy to make this a vegan pumpkin white hot chocolate recipe by swapping the milk and using vegan white chocolate chips.  


I usually use whole milk.  It's plenty creamy enough, and I don't feel that it needs half and half or heavy whipping cream.  


However, if you are following a keto diet, you can certainly swap out heavy whipping cream for fewer carbs,


Pumpkin Puree


I used my Instant Pot pumpkin puree.  It has a true pumpkin taste when you make it from scratch.


There is supposed to be a pumpkin shortage this year.  If you don't make your own, stock up when you see it in the stores!







White Chocolate Chips


You can use regular white chocolate chips.  However, if you have dietary restrictions, then you'll have to get specialty white chocolate chips.


I use chocolate chips from Aldi or the Nestle chips.  That said, the better your chocolate, the better it will melt and taste.


I usually get some small bits that didn't melt in the bottom of my cup when I use cheap chips.  It still tastes good, but keep that in mind if you are serving it for a crowd.







How to Make Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate Recipe in a Slow Cooker


This pumpkin white hot chocolate recipe is very easy to adapt for a slow cooker.  Your guests will love it!


Simply double, triple, or even quadruple the ingredients and place in a slow cooker.  Whisk everything together.  


Cook on low for 3 hours or 1.5 hours on high.  Stir it often so the chocolate has a chance to melt.


Keep the slow cooker on warm to keep the pumpkin white hot chocolate at serving temperature.


Boozy Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate


If you want to make this an adult drink, try adding an ounce of Kahlua or a half ounce of bourbon or whiskey for each glass.  


If you make this in a slow cooker, set the bottles on the counter and add it to each cup.  This way everyone can enjoy the drink, and people can add a shot if they want.  








Tips for Making the Perfect Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate


  • You can use white chocolate in a block or chips.  The higher the quality, the better your drink will be and the better it will melt.
  • You can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate, but I really like the white chocolate.
  • Add 1 ounce of Kahula or 1/2 ounce bourbon for a boozy pumpkin white hot chocolate recipe.
  • I do not add additional sugar, and it's plenty sweet with the white chocolate chips.  If you want, you can add sugar or stevia to taste.

Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate Ingredients




Directions


Step #1


Place milk, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice in a small sauce pan.  Heat over medium heat until it starts to simmer.


Step #2


When it starts to simmer, add the white chocolate chips and stir until they are melted.


I have an electric stove, so I turn off the heat and leave the pan on the burner to melt the chips.  If you have a gas stove, turn the heat down to low to melt them.  





Step #3


Let cool slightly and enjoy!
