I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #PumpkinWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
This pumpkin white chocolate mocha tastes like a specialty coffeehouse drink, but you can make it right at home! Use strongly-brewed coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine.

PRIZE#2 SWEETS & TREATS
Sweets & Treats is giving one winner the Year of Sprinkles that contains holiday mixes, classic sprinkles, and some of their most popular sprinkles.
Sweets & Treats, a party and baking supplies manufacturer and wholesaler, started out of a baking industry need for truly grease-proof cupcake liners. From there, the company expanded into a handful of specialized categories including the latest, Sweet Sprinkles, their one of a kind sprinkles and sprinkle mix line. With hundreds of truly unique products, they are a one stop shop for your next party!
Torani is giving one winner a year supply of Torani: 12-750ml glass bottles, flavors will be winner’s choice, plus pumps for each bottle.
We believe in flavor for all and opportunity for all. In the beginning, Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre visited family in Lucca, Italy. They returned home to San Francisco with handwritten recipes, which they used to create authentic flavored syrups. Needless to say, the syrups we’re a hit. A lot has happened since then, but our belief has remained the same: Flavor for All, Opportunity for All. It means that not only are the products we make inclusive and approachable, but so is our success. We believe everything starts with people, and the only way to truly succeed is to succeed together. Today, you can use more than 100 of our naturally flavored syrups, sauces and beverage bases in coffees, sodas, teas, smoothies, cocktails and more.
PRIZE#4 CABOT CREAMERY CO-OPERATIVE
Cabot is giving one winner a gift box of assorted Cabot cheeses.
The farm families that own Cabot Creamery Co-operative love what they do. And they’ve been doing it for a long time—every single day since 1919. Almost 100 years later, we’re proud of our thriving farms, strong communities, and happy, healthy cows that produce the rich, buttery milk that we use to make Cabot’s award-winning cheese and dairy products. We like to think those awards mean we’re doing something right. Of course, you’re a big part of this too. If you love eating our cheese as much as we love making it, then we’ll get to keep doing what we do for generations to come.
I love specialty coffee drinks, especially this time of year. What is it about pumpkin that makes it pair so well with coffee? I really don’t know.
Well, if you find a straight pumpkin latte too cloying, you might like this drink better. The pumpkin flavor is tempered with a white chocolate mocha sauce, and the resulting drink is incredibly delicious.
I make this sauce at home, and make faux lattes with it. I don’t have an espresso machine, so I use strongly-brewed coffee. I do own a battery-operated milk frother. I heat the milk in the microwave, then froth with the wand, and add it to my faux latte.
If I’m making a small cup (a standard coffee cup size), I use one “shot” (one ounce) of coffee and one tablespoon of sauce, and if I’m making a large cup (a large mug, or a travel mug), I’ll use two ounces of coffee and two tablespoons of sauce. I add the steamed milk to taste and top with foam.
Making myself faux lattes at home has saved me a lot of money, even with buying a milk frother. I’m not so particular about coffee that I mind using coffee instead of espresso. And making one batch of sauce lasts at least two weeks.
- 20 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 14 oz evaporated milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp instant espresso powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a large saucepan, whisk together the milks, sugar, pumpkin, and vanilla over medium until lightly simmering.
Add white chocolate chips and continue whisking until chocolate is melted.
Add espresso powder and spices, and keep whisking to mix thoroughly.
Remove from heat to cool.
Pour cooled syrup into bottles or jars and store in the refrigerator.
Shake well before using. Add about 2 tablespoonfuls of sauce per coffee drink.
