Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate

Follow Me on Pinterest

I certainly have been enjoying a lot of pumpkin lately and in particular I have been enjoying transforming the pumpkin pie flavours into different dishes. When I came across the idea of a pumpkin pie white hot chocolate recently on The Luna Cafe I knew immediatly what my next pumpkin pie experiment was going to be. Not too long ago I had tried a pumpkin pie milkshake and a hot version of a pumpkin pie drink sounded perfect for the chilly weather that we have been having. This drink is pretty much as simple as making some white hot chocolate and adding the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spices and it is so worth making! The pumpkin pie white hot chocolate was excellent! It was nice and hot and the white chocolate added the perfect amount of sweetness that went really well with the pumpkin pie flavours. Lesson learned: Don't try to top a hot drink with whipped cream before photographing it as it melts pretty much right away.

hikki lurver said...

Omg this is pure genius. I gasped a little when I saw the title. You truly are amazing Kevin.

screwdestiny said...

Ohmygosh this sounds delicious.

I'm glad you don't have a hate-on for white chocolate like a lot of "foodies" do. I don't get it. It's delicious, even if it's not really chocolate. And with pumpkin--yum!

Joanne said...

White hot chocolate was my favorite drink from Dunkin Donuts for a while (until I realized it may be contributing to the fact that I gained 20+ pounds in college). A homemade version with pumpkin pie spices in it sounds amazing though. And worth every calorie.

Pam said...

YUMM!

megan said...

This has just been added to my "to make as soon as possible" list! I have everything already in the refrigerator...so yeah...as soon as possible :)

lisa said...

This sounds very worth making! What a rich and delicious dessert in drinkable form.

Lo said...

Mmm. This does look scrumptious, Kevin. Will add this to my repertoire (which currently consists of one beverage -- a pumpkin pie latte...!)

Kel said...

This combination is SO going to make it into a morning bowl of oatmeal!

pigpigscorner said...

oh my, sounds like a great combo.

ali @ gimme some oven said...

Oh my goodness - I am so trying this. :) Love pumpkin and have been addicted to white hot chocolate for years. Thanks so much for the recipe!

kellyred said...

I made it! Though, I'm a poor college student so I had to make do with the ingredients I had on hand... coconut milk instead of regular (had it for another recipe and never used it again) and a Hershey's Cookies & Cream bar instead of proper white chocolate. I also didn't have any vanilla, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top didn't hurt it at all :)
Thanks for the great recipe! It was absolutely delicious, and so creative!

Penny Wolf said...

Almost a year later and I'm finding this wonderful recipe! A toasted marshmallow (homemade no doubt)would be a beautiful and slower melting addition to this creation. I always enjoy this site! Thank you!!

Monica said...

Thanks so much for this great recipe! It's so simple yet I never would have thought of it! I added more spices because I'm a spice demon =)

Tried this at a party last night and won a prize for it! Add a little more pumpkin and some more white chocolate as you prefer.

This sounds amazing!!! I just need to get some white chocolate and then this is happening.

Lauren and Sarah said...

Made this last night. It was amazing!!

Anonymous said...

does anyone know if it can be done with something less then whole milk??

Kevin said...

Anonymous: Yes, you can use something less than whole milk, like say skim milk. It just won't be as creamy.

K said...

Just made this- heavenly! Thank you :)

Leo said...

It tastes so good! It's sweet and delicious.

Melissa Skinner said...

Kevin, I'm gaining weight just reading through your blogs! Just a quick note of thanks for all of your tasty ideas, and a quick tip for photographing something hot with whipped topping, use frozen whipped topping. I know you intended to enjoy that hot beverage so letting it cool first would not have been an option.

What kind of pumpkin did u use?

Lori Esquivel said...

Use shaving cream for photo shoots. That's what you see in commercials....just don't drink it!

Kevin said...

Anonymous: I use a pie pumpkin, though other varieties of pumpkin would work as well.

Anonymous said...

When do you put in the vanilla? It's not in the directions...

KM W said...

This is probably a dumb question, but is it ok to use white chocolate chips in this recipe?

KM W said...

This is probably a dumb question, but do white chocolate chips work all right in this recipe?

Jessica said...

Totally amazing. I'll probably try this, this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

Kevin said...

Anonymous: You add the vanilla at the beginning with all of the other ingredients. I have updated the recipe. Enjoy!

Kevin said...

KM W: Yes, white chocolate chips will work in this recipe.

Amanda said...

Drinking this right now! Definitely trying it with half and half next time for an even creamier drink!

Jen said...

Could this be made in a slow cooker?? I have a shower coming up this weekend and wanted to try it but I need about 3 batches! :)

SaraGezelius said...

Oh my gosh that looks DELISH!! I will make this for my family tomorrow as we all enjoy everything pumpkin flavored! :)
Thanks for the recipe!

Kevin said...

Jen: Yes you should be able to make this in a slow cooker. It should only require a few hours on low. Enjoy!

Just made this and it wasn't that great. The texture is gross.

Karen said...

I made pumpkin cappuccino using pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice....excellent. I started with original cappuccino powder (according to your taste I usually use 4 heaping tsp. of powder per.10 oz. cup ),1 tsp.puree,1/4 tsp. pumpkin spice.. top with whipped cream sprinkle with pumpkin spice.
