Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate

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 Winking smile 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.

  7. Ugh, you just brought back memories of my last oven cleaning experience when we moved. It took forrrreverr!

    I would love to curl up with this cup of hot cocoa!

    • You are so right Stephanie! It does take FOREVER! I don’t think I’ve ever thought “man, that was so quick an easy – I think I’ll clean my oven more often”. Maybe we can pawn it off on our husbands next time?! They eat all the food that comes out of it… lol

  8. Gorgeous pictures! This recipe looks and sounds amazing. Kudos to you on cleaning the oven, too. :)

  9. I love this! I’m still not done with pumpkin…and somehow have never made a white chocolate before. I need to get on this! Also…anytime you’d like to clean my oven, you’d be welcome here :) It’s definitely on my to-do list, and I’ve been procrastinating like crazy.

  10. I could really cuddle up to a big ole’ mug of this—love the idea of pairing buttery white chocolate with sweet pumpkin–lovelovelove =)

  11. Since I don’t drink coffee, I have been spending most of the past chilly mornings starting my day with a cup of hot cocoa, so this looks just wonderful to me. Love the addition of the pumpkin – I bet this is just wonderful!
