Warm Up with This Fall Hot Chocolate Recipe!



Now that fall is in full gear, the days are getting shorter and the weather is becoming chillier, it's always nice to be able to cozy up with a hot drink. Recipes like these are always good to have on hand for an intimate get-together with girlfriends, to serve at your annual Halloween party, to save for Thanksgiving and much more. We're loving this cocktail-inspired hot cocoa recipe for the season!



"Boozy Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate"

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or chopped)
  • 2.5 cups milk (I used 2%)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 ounce Kahlua or 1/2 ounce Bourbon
  • whipped cream and caramel for topping (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a saucepan over low-medium heat, melt the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the milk, whisking often (about 3 minutes).
  • Once melted, add the rest of the milk, the pumpkin and the pumpkin pie spice and stir vigorously to incorporate.
  • Pour a small amount of the hot chocolate into two serving glasses, add one ounce of Kahlua OR one-half ounce of bourbon (bourbon is much stronger in taste). Top off with hot chocolate, stir and then top with whipped cream, caramel sauce and more pumpkin pie spice (optional).

*Use non-dairy milk and non-dairy white chocolate to make this recipe vegan friendly.
