When it’s cold outside, warm yourself up with a mug of this crazy rich and chocolatey Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate made with half and half, heavy cream, chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and unsweetened cocoa.
Hot Chocolate is definitely a childhood favorite of mine. My grandmother used to make it for me all the time on the stove using a packet of instant hot chocolate (with the mini dried marshmallows of course) and she would add a little bit of warm milk to make it richer than just adding water. I had the best grandma. Now that I am older and I like to entertain around the holiday, I figure it is time to come up with my own way of making hot chocolate where people can serve themselves by using a slow cooker.
Make a Hot Chocolate Bar
One thing I do when I make this recipe, is I lay out different toppings that people tend to love on their hot chocolate, such as:
- Peppermint Stick
- Chopped Chocolate
- Ice Cream, even!
I’m sure there are other toppings you guys can think of but these are my typical go-to favorites. So this holiday season when you’re craving something hot and chocolate, try my Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate and it will easily become an annual favorite!
