I may have just discovered the greatest hot beverage of all time: Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate. Made with real pumpkin, white chocolate, milk, and all your favorite fall spices, this pumpkin-inspired hot chocolate is a hands-down winner!


  • 5 cups milk
  • 12 ounces white chocolate baking chips - (I used Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers.)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Whipped Cream
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks for garnish


  • In a 4-quart Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk, white chocolate, and heavy whipping cream until hot and creamy. Adjust the heat to a very low simmer. Do not boil.
  • Whisk in the pumpkin puree, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Heat to a comfortable drinking temperature.
  • In the meantime, beat the whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form.
  • Serve the Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate in heatproof mugs. Top with whipped cream, a cinnamon stick, and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.


Make a Pumpkin Spice White Chocolate Latte by adding a shot or two of espresso to your mug.
Spike your Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate with whipped (or vanilla) vodka) and a splash of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur.
