The Pumpkin Batch December 2016

Here are the items in the December The Pumpkin Batch Box.  My family could not wait to check it out!

Glass Pumpkin Ornament

Look what arrived just in time for Christmas! The teenager that loves everything pumpkin declared that the Primitives by Kathy Tall Glass Pumpkin Ornament ($9.20) to be the best subscription box ornament of 2016. It also adds color to an autumn or winter decor.

We placed it high up in the tree out of reach of kitty paws and wagging tails.

Pumpkin Bath Bomb

The Scrub Bar Pumpkin Bath Bomb ($6.00) has an amazing, warm pumpkin spice scent and is shaped like a pumpkin. I can’t wait to enjoy a quiet bath as the restorative properties of pumpkin works on my skin.

Another View

The handmade bath bomb has almond oil, coconut oil, and even gold luster as its ingredients. It is a huge bomb that should last me two to three baths.

Cooking with Pumpkin

I enjoy baking and look forward to trying out the recipes in Cooking with Pumpkin Recipes That Go Beyond the Pie by Averie Sunshine ($17.00 on card, $12.20 on Amazon.)


Amazon describes the book as:

The recipes follow the signature style that Sunshine’s Averie Cooks blog readers know and appreciate: simple, easy-to-follow recipes that deliver impressive results minus anything fussy or complicated, making this book a great choice for both new and experienced cooks.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

I may have to start with the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie recipe first!

Ticket Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

My family loves receiving Ticket Chocolate Hot Chocolate. The Ticket Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate  ($5.00) is made with delicious Belgian chocolate mixed with a blend of pumpkin spices, nutmeg, and raw sugar.

Time to make the hot chocolate

My children enjoyed stirring the Belgian couverture chocolate into the steaming milk


The hot chocolate drink had a satisfying pumpkin spice and chocolate taste. The pumpkin spice aroma had everyone clamoring for more.

My family enjoyed our first The Pumpkin Batch Box.  It left us feeling cozy over the holiday season. The value of the box came to over $30.00 using discount prices. It’s a fun treat for pumpkin lovers!

    I am so glad I don’t subscribe to Pumpkin Batch anymore. I already have all but the bath bomb from last December 2015 PB. I would have been very upset if I got this stuff again.
