How To Make Crockpot Hot Chocolate

Ingredients needed

  • Unsweetened cocoa
  • Condensed milk
  • Whole milkHeavy cream
  • Vanialla
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Mini marshmallows or whipped cream for garnish

Important tips before starting the recipe

  • If you’ve never worked with chocolate before here’s my warning, watch the heat. Chocolate is very sensitive to heat so you’ll want to be careful. This isn’t a recipe that doesn’t require stirring.
  • You can have fun with the chocolate chips. Milk chocolate chips were too sweet in my testing. Semi-sweet were perfect for a rich chocolate flavor. But this is your recipe, have fun with it. The chips won’t change the recipe only the flavors in the hot chocolate.
