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
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- 1/8 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.
