Wine always seems to be the go-to hostess gift. But sometimes it’s nice to take it up a notch and give something you have made. I created a gift basket with homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup and White Chocolate-Dipped Spoons. It is a gift basket you can put together for $10 to $15. finished syrup in a gift basket
Fall brings the arrival of pumpkin-spiced lattes at our local coffeehouses. Why not treat your favorite people with a bottle of homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup, along with a couple of mugs and the recipe to create that coffeehouse beverage at home?

The syrup is a simple sugar base with the addition of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree. Pumpkin pie spice is a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice.

To make a Pumpkin Spice Latte, add 1-1/2 tablespoons of the syrup to 6 ounces of milk. adding syrup to warmed milk
Heat in the microwave or in a pan on the stove. I have a mini whip that froths my milk. Add one shot of espresso and top with whipped cream. If you want to go crazy, drizzle caramel over the top. frothing milk, adding espresso and final latte
To make up a gift basket, add some mugs. The dollar store is such a great place to pick up items for gifts like this. You can buy a pretty bottle, the basket and two mugs for under $5. I added a few white chocolate-dipped spoons sprinkled with orange sanding sugar. Another tasty addition for the basket is Baked Maple Donuts.
