Crock pot hot chocolate

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.

Tips:

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.
