Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate
When the weather starts to cool down, we go through a lot of hot chocolate in our home. We like to dip grilled cheese in it, drink it with tons of marshmallows, or have it as a treat to warm us up after coming in from inside. I love this slow cooker hot chocolate recipe, and the good thing about this is that it’s ready when you come inside or come home. No having to heat up water, microwave separate cups, etc.

    I love how much you use your crock pot. I’ll be using mine more and trying many of your recipes once the weather gets a bit cooler here in Texas.

    Ok, I have to say this is a GENIOUS idea! I love my slow cooker but never thought about making drinks in it. We are hot cocoaaholics so this would be perfect after being out in the cold for a few hours and coming home to cocoa ready to go. LOVE IT!

    Did I read that correctly … dip grilled cheese in hot cocoa? Marshmallows, graham crackers, a candy bar even, but grilled cheese? LOL

    The grilled cheese thing aside, this is the first time I’ve heard of making hot cocoa in a slow cooker, I’m def. gonna have to try this.

    I would have never thought to use my crockpot to do hot chocolate and I have never heard of dipping grilled cheese in it. We love hot chocolate and we fix this Christmas morning right before we wake the kids so they can drink while we open gift, This would be the perfect way to have it ready. Thank you so much for the recipe.

      Yeah, I didn’t think of it either until I saw the recipe. It’s perfect for days that you know you are going to want it and want to eliminate the prep work beforehand.

    This looks absolutely delicious! It’s been freezing here at night in GA already. This is great for those cold, snuggle under the blanket, nights!
