Kahlua Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa

Yield 1


  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or chopped white chocolate)
  • 2.5 cups milk (2% or whole milk work best)
  • 2 ounces Kahlua Pumpkin Spice
  • Whipped cream for topping


  1. In a saucepan over medium-low, heat the white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the milk, whisking often for about 3 minutes or until the chocolate completely melts.
  2. Once melted, add the rest of the milk, whisking vigorously to incorporate, and cook until warm. (Another 2-3 minutes). Cook a bit longer if you like your cocoa super hot.
  3. Turn off the heat and whisk in the Kahlua Pumpkin Spice.
  4. Pour into two mason jars or mugs and top with whipped cream and a few extra white chocolate chips.
