Boozy Pumpkin Hot Cocoa


  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or chopped)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk (2% recommended)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 ounce Kahlua or 1/2 ounce Bourbon
  • Optional: Whipped cream and caramel for topping

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: In a saucepan over low-medium heat, melt the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the milk, whisking often (about 3 minutes).

Step 2: Once melted, add the rest of the milk, the pumpkin and the pumpkin pie spice and stir vigorously to incorporate.

Step 3: 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).
