Did you guys do any black Friday shopping??
I spent black Friday cleaning my black oven. I wish I was joking, but honestly both of my ovens were pretty bad. They were in need of some serious TLC. After a few hours of scrubbing they are now spotless, I even surprised myself Now I am totally ready for all my holiday baking.
I did do a tiny bit of shopping, but I only bought a couple things for myself..oops. I’ve still got 100% of my Christmas shopping to do..
Now that it’s finally cold here in the mornings I occasionally upgrade my usual cup of tea for a mug of hot chocolate. And sometimes I like to spice it up a little more and make a fancy hot chocolate. It’s ok to indulge a little, it is the holidays after all.
The white chocolate is really what makes this for me. I love white chocolate and it pairs really well with the pumpkin and spices.
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ginger
- ⅛ teaspoon cloves
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 ounces white chocolate, roughly chopped
- Pinch of salt
- Heat the milk, pumpkin puree, spices and vanilla in a sauce pan until it just starts to simmer and remove from heat.
- Add the chocolate and stir until it has melted.
- Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon.
