On a cold day, there are few things better than a fresh cup of hot chocolate.
When we think of a typical cup of cocoa, we probably think of a standard cup of milk chocolate. Still, there are plenty of ways to get creative with this classic dish. As it turns out, you can add a lot of variety to this basic fall treat—and you can even do it right in your slow cooker. If you’re a fan of pumpkin spice lattés, this recipe is one you have to try. Fortunately, it couldn’t be easier to make. Let’s get started.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 cups of whole milk
- 1 cup of white chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
- 4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg (plus extra for topping)
- cinnamon sticks (for topping)
- whipped cream (for topping)
Here’s what you do:
1. Begin by pouring your milk, white chocolate chips, pumpkin, cinnamon sticks, ginger and nutmeg into the bottom of your slow cooker.
2. Stir everything up and close the lid, setting it to cook on low for two to three hours (though be sure to stir every 10 minutes or so for the first hour).
3. When the time is up, make sure everything is smooth and well-combined before scooping it out into mugs. Top each one with a little extra nutmeg, a cinnamon stick and some whipped cream!
