  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz white chocolate bar , chopped

Instructions

  • Turn off heat, add white chocolate and stir until chocolate has melted.
  • Carefully ladle into mugs, top with whipped cream and dust with cinnamon if desired.

Notes

TO MAKE WITH SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE:

  • Prepare as directed, except also add 2-3 Tbsp of granulated sugar to the milk mixture.  Instead of adding white chocolate, add 3-4 oz semi-sweet chocolate.

TO MAKE IN THE CROCKPOT:

  • Add all ingredients to a slow cooker, stirring to break up the pumpkin.  Cover and cook on LOW for 3 hours or HIGH for 1 1/2 hours.
