Pumpkin spice white hot chocolate

Yup, I know we are well into November & the pumpkin posts are probably getting old, quick.  It's really not my fault though.  I bought into the pumpkin scare and purchased more pumpkin than I could probably use in the next 5 years.

It's okay though because I've been using pumpkin in everything, including things other than baking.  Like this hot chocolate.

This is a yummy, creamy, thick hot chocolate.  The flavors are complementary and it is a delicate, out of the box, hot drink.

Extra points for how easy it is to make.

So break out all that extra pumpkin that I know you have and make this!

 Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

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)
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine milk, pumpkin and spices. Cook string constantly until just simmering.
Remove from heat and add chocolate ( reserve some for garnish)
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. Serve immediately.
quick notes
To store, let cool, cover, and refrigerate. Reheat to serve. Recipe can easily be doubled.
