Only 2 Ingredients — White Chocolate and Pumpkin Pie Spice

Here is an overview of how to make the Pumpkin Pie Spice White Chocolate Candy:

  1. Melt the white chocolate.
  2. Stir in the pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Spoon as drops onto wax paper.

Here are two ways to melt chocolate.

  1. With a microwave.
  2. With an oven (video).

A detailed pumpkin pie spice-flavored white chocolate recipe is further below.

It happens every time.

Well, so far only twice — because this one happened with only my second book. (See New Cocoa Candy for the first one.)

Whenever I modify and test Amish recipes for a recipe book, I stumble on wonderful candy that doesn't quite fit the book. So I publish it here, at the Amish recipes section of this website.

Not all stumbles are published on this website. Most aren't. This is the second that turned out too good not to share.

The working title for the new recipe book is Amish Recipes: Chocolate-Covered Truffle Candy. It was while testing the pumpkin pie spice truffle recipe that this recipe fell into my lap.

It is a virtual certainty that you will love this candy.

At least, give yourself the opportunity to find out. For a quick test, get some white chocolate chips or white baking chips (sometimes called "morsels" instead of "chips").

Melt half a cup of the chips. Stir in a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.

If you can keep from eating all of the melty concoction, spoon what's left as drops onto wax paper.

Let it dry until it is firm enough to handle. (No longer sticky.)

Ambrosia.

By the way, the recipe makes a small amount (only half a cup, total). To double the recipe, use 1 cup white chocolate and 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice.

Here is the Pumpkin Pie Spice White Chocolate recipe for a modern kitchen.

Pumpkin Pie Spice White Chocolate

(For modern kitchens.)

1/2 cup white chocolate or white baking chips

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Prepare a plate by laying a sheet of wax paper on it (or lightly grease the plate with butter if you don't have wax paper). This will hold the finished candy.

Melt the chocolate. This can be done in a warm oven in 3-minute increments or in the microwave in 10-second increments, with a quick stir between increments.

Pancake on small platter

Don't over melt. Just enough so all solids are dissolved.

Stir the pumpkin pie spice into the melted white chocolate until well blended.

With a spoon, drop the melty mixture onto the prepared plate. The number of drops will depend on how much melty concoction your spoon carries.

Let the drops dry until they are firm enough to handle. (No longer sticky.)

Yields enough for 2 people to have a nice treat.

Use the public comments area further below, or write to me directly, and tell me your impression of the candy. Was the recipe really as easy as I make it out to be?

Oh, and watch for the new book. It should be published in time for you to impress people during the holidays.
