It’s Time For Crockpot Hot Chocolate

It’s Time For Crockpot Hot Chocolate
Nights like tonight make me want to light the firepit and have a mug or two of hot chocolate!  The good news is that we are going to have plenty of cool nights to do just that. I found this recipe for crock pot hot chocolate last fall on Pinterest and I… love it.  It’s so much better than those packets of dry mix.  Once you make this, you’ll never go back to the packet. Enjoy!
Crock Pot Hot Chocolate -serves 8
Ideal slow cooker size: 3 qt
Ingredients:
1/2 cup dry baking cocoa
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
7 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Marshmallows, as many as you want
Directions:
1.) In crock pot combine milk and water.
2.) Add dry cocoa and salt, stir until smooth.
3.) Cover and cook on high 2 hours or on low for 4 hrs or until very hot.
4.) Top each serving with marshmallows, I also love whipped cream
Tips: To speed things up, heat the water before adding it to the chocolate mixture. Add a mocha flavor by stirring in instant coffee in step 2.
