Author: Kitchen Treaty
Recipe type: Beverage
Yield: 4 cups
4 cups whole milk
1 cup white chocolate chips
¼ cup pumpkin puree
4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg plus more for topping
Additional cinnamon sticks for serving
Whipped cream for topping (optional)
Add milk, white chocolate chips, pumpkin, 4 3-inch cinnamon sticks, ginger, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg in a 2 quart or larger slow cooker/Crock Pot.
Heat on low for 2 - 3 hours, stirring every 10 minutes or so the first hour (to help distribute the white chocolate as it melts) and then occasionally after that.
To serve, ladle into mugs and top with whipped cream, if using. Grate some fresh nutmeg over the top and add a cinnamon stick (the pumpkin tends to settle a bit so the cinnamon stick has the added bonus of acting as a stir stick).
