Creamy Crock-Pot Cocoa Recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

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.

    How long do you suppose one can keep it warming in the crockpot? Would it curdle or something if left too long while the crockpot was turned on or fall below a safe temperature if you leave it in with the power off after it finishes the initial warming?

      It shouldn't have a skin on top. If it sits too long without stirring, just stir it and there won't be a layer on top. The chocolate should dissolve fully into the milk. I hope that helps!
