Crockpot Hot Chocolate
I figured out an easy way to warm up after the snow. I make crockpot hot chocolate. There are two things I love during the winter they are Starbucks hot chocolate and my slow cooker I decided to combine the two. This is a recipe for “Starbucks like” hot cocoa or Starbucks Hot Chocolate. It is sweet and savory. It is the perfect answer to a long day outside and something my kids have grown to request after a play outside in the cold.
Ingredients for Crockpot Hot Chocolate
Serving size for 8 cups
2 cup of water
8 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa (chocolate syrup will do if you are stuck inside and do not have this)
8 Tablespoons of sugar
6 cups if milk
1 tablespoon of vanilla
whip cream as a topping you can never have to much whip cream ( I am snowed in and didn’t have whip cream. Whip cream doesn’t last long in my house.)
Pour into a mason jar
You will combine all of the ingredients in your crockpot. Then you will turn it on low for an hour and it will be ready for when you come in from the snow. If you are going to be longer put it on warm. This is a great way to have a hot beverage ready when you are done playing outside.
Fill your jar, mug, glass or cup! This is so amazing!
OH SO YUMMY!
I used chocolate syrup in the making of the image. I had to be dramatic.. because that is what you do for photographs.
How about a chocolate pudding cookie to go with your crockpot hot chocolate.
