Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Butter is a sweet spread full of pumpkin flavor. Slather on toast, fruit, pancakes and waffles!
When fall rolls around there is no shortage of Pumpkin Desserts. You’ve got your Pumpkin Cookies, Pumpkin Cake and even Bourbon Chocolate Pumpkin Pie. But rarely do these desserts tumble over into something that you enjoy for breakfast. That is where this Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Butter comes in.
This Pumpkin Butter with just a hint of dark chocolate is sweet, decadent and oh so delicious. Even my kiddos ditched the Nutella toast for breakfast and opted for this instead.
Let’s talk about what you’ll need to make it:
Despite being called “butter” this recipe doesn’t actually have any butter in it and is vegan friendly. Here’s what you’ll need:
Pumpkin butter could not be easier to make! You simply combine all of the ingredients together in a small sauce pan and let it simmer. As it simmers it will cook down and thicken.
STEP #1: Combine all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Bring to a slight boil and then reduce heat to low. Let simmer until thickened, this will take about 30 minutes.
STEP #2: Allow to cool to room temperature before using.
Pumpkin Butter must be stored in the refrigerator and will last for about 1 week.
I love slathering it on toast. Using it as a dip for crisp sweet apples. And if you spread it on a waffle and top it with a little whipped cream, it tastes a little like pumpkin pie. It. Is. Delicious.
