Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa
Try this recipe for Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa, and you will never buy commercial blends for hot chocolate again. Seriously. Nothing beats home made hot chocolate. And, this recipe is quick and easy to make, and really just requires you to dump all of the ingredients in to the crock pot, and then let them heat up for a couple of hours. How much easier does it get than that? (The miracle of crock pot cooking!) And, cooking for a few hours in the crock pot will intensify the flavors, and make this already great recipe even better, richer and thicker (is that possible?). So try out this recipe for Creamy Crockpot Hot Cocoa, and see how much you enjoy it, and how much the kids go gaga over it! You can still add marshmallows to the drink, once it is made, and if that is how you like it (and you know the kids will want marshmallows—as many as possible), but this drink is lovely all on its own.
The recipe’s main ingredients include whipping cream, milk and chocolate. Be sure to find the best quality ingredients for these inclusions. For example, use whole milk. And buy great chocolate, although be sure it has no nuts or other things in it. The recipe recommends chips, but you could use whole chocolate bars, if you prefer them. And that gives you some flavor options. For example, you could buy mint chocolate or use dark or milk chocolate, or a blend of the two. You could also alter the milk and whipped cream ratio, if you want a richer (or perhaps, less, rich, blend).
This is a simple recipe that uses great ingredients for a truly scrumptious result. Do not worry too much about the ratios of milk, cream and chocolate. You can always adjust these flavors as you make this drink more often. Enjoy it soon. Your family will just love it.
