+optional- drop of orange color or dab of pumpkin puree, for color/vibes
+medium size molds (I use a red, silicone ice cube tray) and small spoons.
In a small microwave- safe bowl, heat the white chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave in 15-second spurts, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Mix in the pumpkin spice and instant coffee, stirring to combine. If you’re adding some orange pizzazz, do so here.
Divide mixture into 2 equal molds, sticking a spoon into the center. Pop both into the fridge or freezer to set, about 30 minutes. Remove from molds by pulling the handle of the spoon.
Heat a warm mug of milk and stir in when the moment strikes (spoon’s already there!), or bring a cute cellophane bag into the mix and give away as a gift.
