Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa {Best Ever!}

Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa – I guarantee you that this is the BEST YOU’VE EVER HAD! It is so delicious, you may want to lick the crockpot afterwards.

I meant to start my Holiday goodies series on December 1st, but if you keep up with me on  my facebook page, then you know that we had a water mishap.  A switch had gone bad on our water tank, & we had NO running water in the house for nearly 2 days.  We were filling up containers of water from the neighbor’s outdoor spigot, & using that for all of our water needs.  I had NO idea that it takes nearly 3 gallons of water to simply flush a toilet!  If anything, my 2 day experience with no running water made me appreciate it so much more.  I was cooking during the ordeal, then it came time to do the dishes – but kinda hard to do without water!  I am SO glad that is over with now.

Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa - best ever!!

I am starting off the Holiday goody season with my recipe for Hot Cocoa in the Crockpot.  This isn’t Swiss Miss, folks.  This is the real deal!  On a chilly day, it warms you from the inside out.  Serve it to a child, & you will see their face light up like a Christmas tree.  Proof in point – here is my daughter, Madison after just drinking a swallow. Decadent doesn’t even begin to describe this.  I’m serious – this is the BEST hot cocoa.  Ever.

SO easy to make! Just stir the cream, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, milk, & vanilla together in your crockpot…

Cover, & cook on low for 2 hours – coming back to whisk it every so often.

BEST EVER HOT COCOA!!! Made from real chocolate chips!

How easy was that?? Now just ladle into mugs & serve!

Garnish with marshmallows or whipped cream if desired.  I personally love marshmallows with mine. Candy canes are also great!

This serves 6-8 people, depending upon how big of mugs you use – and I used a 5 quart crockpot in my pictures.

Printable recipe after the video tutorial!
