Rich, creamy hot cocoa can be made from scratch with barely two minutes work. You might be asking yourself why anyone would want to use the crock-pot to make hot chocolate. As it turns out, it’s kind of nice not to hover over the stove stirring a pot!
I combined everything in the slow cooker when we started pulling out our Christmas decorations this weekend. By the time the tree was decorated, we had hot chocolate ready and waiting for us. If you prefer a stove-top recipe, this Simple Homemade Hot Cocoa is an awesome winter treat as well.
- 5 cups milk
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips I used a bittersweet dark chocolate
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Combine all ingredients in the crock-pot and cook on HIGH for 90 minutes or on LOW for 2-3 hours. Whisk well to combine. Pour into mugs and serve topped with whipped cream or marshmallows. Enjoy!
