Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate combines the best flavors of fall with creamy white chocolate, real pumpkin and spices. This rich and delicious drink is easy to make and will easily become a favorite beverage.

This is my last recipe for #PumpkinWeek and it’s perhaps my favorite for a few reasons. Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate has my favorite flavors in a hot chocolate drink – pumpkin and white chocolate with almond milk. I love the nuttiness of the almond milk with the pumpkin and chocolate. Not to mention it has all those cozy fall spices you find in pumpkin pie or any pumpkin spice recipe. Lastly, it’s a super easy recipe that can be made fast.
Pumpkin Week has been a blast for me and I can’t wait for it to come around again next year! I hope you have enjoyed all the recipes we have been sharing.

Quality Ingredients Make a Difference
Let’s get on with the this hot chocolate drink recipe! For this recipe, I was thrilled to receive Torani’s Puremade Pumpkin Pie Sauce as it’s ahhhmazing in anything you want that pumpkin spice flavor in. Seriously, I’ve been adding it to my coffee every day since I’ve gotten it and to bump up my morning boring oatmeal I added a spoonful of this sauce and wow! Oatmeal is a bit more tolerable with it! Ha! Torani’s line of Puremade Sauces are made with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no artificial preservatives. How about that? Easy goodness to add to your drinks and recipes.
Not even gonna lie – I ate a couple of spoonfuls by itself. No judgement please.
Dixie Crystals provided us with a generous gift card to purchase some supplies to use in our recipes this week. I’ve already mentioned the cute treat bags that I used to make the air fryer pumpkin spice donut holes. For this recipe, I used Rodelle Vanilla Extract (so good!) and two amazing mugs from JoyJolt. I love those mugs. Drinks stay hot (or cold) and no condensation due to the double walled insulation the mugs have. Thank you again, Dixie Crystals!
Tips to make Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate:
This recipe makes two servings so if you are making for a crowd, adjust the recipe as needed. You can also make this in the slow cooker and let it heat for a couple of hours, mixing a few times. Also, use whatever milk or milk-free product you prefer.
Using a medium saucepan, add your almond milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and the Torani’s Puremade Pumpkin Pie Sauce – mix well and heat until it’s just coming to a boil. Let it simmer on low for a few minutes while stirring a few times until it’s the mixture is blended well and hot.
Take the pan off the heat and stir in the vanilla and the white chocolate chips, mixing until they are melted and combined. That’s it. Pour into mugs, garnish with whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin spice or a drizzle of the pumpkin pie sauce.
