It's sweet, warm and so tasty! I made it again recently when we were snowed in at home and both of my girls just loved it. I love how simple this recipe is to make. It takes just minutes on the stovetop and is super easy to prep for the crockpot.

Recipe tips:

  • We usually double or triple this recipe when using the slow cooker and serve it for parties.
  • This hot chocolate may thicken upon cooling. If a film forms on the top of the liquid in the pan, turn the heat back on low and whisk until smooth again. You can use the keep warm setting on a slow cooker.

You can add or substitute with these ingredients:

  • use any color food coloring
  • use bars of white or vanilla baking chocolate instead of chips. Chop roughly before adding to the saucepan with the rest of the ingredients to ensure that the chocolate melts evenly 
  • replace 1-2 cups of the milk with heavy cream or half & half for a thicker consistency
