Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

Winter is the time of year that I crave warm beverages… mostly because I’m always freezing!

Somehow between hot baths and warm beverages, I manage to survive.  Seriously.  It’s been 1 and 2 degrees all week when I’m driving to school in the mornings- BRRR!

Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate is a delicious way to keep the whole family snuggly-warm this winter 🙂

  1. What a delicious recipe!! I love the idea of a slow cooker hot chocolate….thanks! 🙂

  2. Kate Otto says:

    The Hot Chocolate sounds wonderful. One question, are the 2 cups of marshmallows in the recipe only for going on top of the hot chocolate or do they go in with the other ingredients in the crockpot?

  3. Maria says:

    Your hot chocolate looks so good! I’m a hot chocolate addict, since I am not a coffee drinker, I always get hot chocolate whenever I’m out with my husband or friends… I’ve been wanting to make some in my slow cooker too though! This looks delicious!!!
