Rich and creamy crockpot hot chocolate...so easy to make, and perfect for cozy fall and winter days, holiday parties, and guests.

Ingredients
 

  • 6 cups whole milk, OR 3 cups whole milk and 3 cups half and half
  • 2 -12 oz. cans evaporated milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream, (1 pint)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a 6 quart crockpot. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, stirring often the first hour, to make sure the chocolate incorporates and doesn't burn on the bottom.
  • In the 30 minutes before serving, add large and mini marshmallows to the crockpot. They'll get all melty and yummy! Use a ladle to serve hot chocolate into mugs, then top with all of your favorite hot chocolate toppings.

Notes

If you don't have a crockpot, you can still make this!  You can use this recipe on your stove too!! Place all the ingredients on a large stock pot. Keep on low, stirring often until all the chocolate is melted. Simmer with lid on, stirring occasionally.
*You can use 6 cups whole milk, or make it even richer by using 3 cups whole milk and 3 cups half and half.  I've done it both ways, and both are yummy! I usually use half and half.
