Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate : I’m Lovin It


Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate at

Pin It

This recipe had me at Pumpkin….then I was sold after I read White Hot Chocolate!   I’m a sucker for the Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at Starbucks so this recipe really caught my eye.  It’s a delicious hot drink that does not include coffee, so it’s the perfect  treat for the the non coffee drinkers and children!  

I think I will be sipping one of these on Halloween night, awaiting the onslaught of trick-or-treaters.  It would also be perfect at Thanksgiving or just any cold night snuggled up by the fire!

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

Summary: Just like pumpkin pie in a mug!


  • 1.5 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 ounces white chocolate (roughly chopped)


  1. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine milk, pumpkin and spices. Cook string constantly until just simmering.
  2. Remove from heat and add chocolate ( reserve some for garnish)
  3. Just before serving, top each mug with a generous mound of whipped cream, a few shavings of white chocolate, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
  4. Serve immediately.


To store, let cool, cover, and refrigerate. Reheat to serve. Recipe can easily be doubled.

** We used our  Cocoa Latte Maker  to make this and it turned out terrific!

you can read about how we use this machine to make lattes at home



We sipped these while we watched the Cardinals win the first game of the World Series……we may need to drink them each game night to keep the luck going!! GO BIRDS!

  28. Looking forward to curling up with my laptop while my twins are playing and enjoying a cup of this delicious Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate while checking out all these amazing links being shared! This recipe had me at pumpkin too!

  29. I just made an at home pumpkin spiced latte the other day but never thought about adding hot chocolate. Sounds amazing! I’m definitely trying this one.

  30. Pumpkin pie in a mug sounds excellent! I’m not a coffee drinker so this is perfect for me.

  32. I LOVE anything pumpkin, but sadly can’t have the chocolate in this (diabetic). However, I think I am going to try it and substitute Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf No Sugar Added Vanilla Powder for the white chocolate (that stuff is pretty amazing). It won’t be quite the same, but still… PUMPKIN! Thanks for the recipe idea!!
