Some slow cooker hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm yourself up on a cold winter’s day. It’s also a great way to make some hot chocolate in bulk making it perfect if you need to cater for a crowd.
You will find this drink is deliciously creamy and rich in chocolate. It’s perfect for anyone who has a bit of a sweet tooth or if you have kids that just love a good sweet drink.
There are a ton of toppings that you can finish this drink with. For example, some fluffy marshmallows work absolutely great as they always do in a good hot chocolate. Others you can try include sweets such as whipped cream, toffee bits, peppermints, candy canes and so much more.
This is a great way to avoid using powdered hot chocolate mixes whilst still having a great tasting drink. Depending on the powder you usually use you might save money by making it from scratch.
Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for the next day and is great cold. You can also easily reheat any leftover chocolate drink in the microwave or over the stove. I should mention that the chocolate will set when you put it in the fridge so you will get some hard chocolate floaties but this can easily be mixed back in once it has been reheated.
If you have some condensed milk that you’re looking to use up then you should also take a look at the chocolate fudge recipe for the slow cooker. It too is delicious and perfect if you absolutely love chocolate.
