I have a delicious recipe for easy Crock Pot hot chocolate. This is a great recipe to save for entertaining this holiday season or to start before dinner and the family can enjoy really delicious hot chocolate as dessert. Perfect for movie night!
I have tried crock pot hot chocolate recipes in the past and have always been disappointed. I made it once for family movie night at home and the recipe was terrible. It was not creamy and chocolately and just not soul warming like you want from hot chocolate.
The next recipe I tried had been called “Best Ever Crock Pot Hot Chocolate” and had been raved about by the person that published the recipe. I made it for a little party we had last year for 6 year olds. Blech! It wound up being crazy sweet and sticky and just not good at all. When 6 year olds find something too sweet you know you are in trouble.
Well this year I decided to give it one last shot as we were hosting the little Girl Scout troop over to assemble Operation Christmas Child boxes. I wanted to do a hot chocolate bar and decided to give one last recipe a shot.
I am so glad I did! This hot chocolate was so easy and fast to pop in the slow cooker and then it turned out to be absolutely delicious. Rich, creamy, not too sweet and the girls literally drank every last drop. I will absolutely make this again and again and wanted to share the recipe with you to enjoy as well.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk- 14oz
- ½ cup baking cocoa (I used Ghirardelli)
- 2 teaspoon vanilla
- 7 cups milk
- Mix all ingredients in crock and turn on high for 2 hours.
You might want to taste about halfway through cooking and see if this is too rich for you. If it is, you can add another 1/2 cup of milk.
I used 2% milk but whole milk should be fine as well.
This recipe comes from Gooseberry Patch Fall Favorites– their recipe calls for hot water and I substituted milk for a creamier hot chocolate.
If you decide to try this one, come back and let me know what you think!
