Nothing says comfort like a smooth chocolaty cup of cocoa on a cold day. For my Christmas brunch I wanted to make hot chocolate in the crock pot for everyone to enjoy.
Asking around my cousin provided me with his go to recipe from: https://www.thecountrycook.net/crock-pot-creamy-hot-chocolate/
It definitely was a hit and is very creamy and delish!!
A bottle of Peppermint Schnapps was provided if the adults wanted to add a little cheer. Bowls of mini-marshmallows and mini candy canes were available so everyone could make their cup special.
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 6 cups whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate
Put on low for 2 hours.
Warm a little of the milk on the stove top and then add the cocoa powder and whisk before adding to crock pot- Otherwise you will spend some time whisking to incorporate the cocoa powder.
You can also do it all on stove top and then add to crock pot to keep warm.
