Crock Pot Hot Chocolate

www.creatingthroughlife.com

serves 8
Ideal slow cooker size: 3 qt

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup dry baking cocoa
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
7 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Marshmallows, as many as you want

Directions:
In crock-pot combine milk, water and vanilla.
Add dry cocoa and salt, stir until smooth.
Cover and cook on high 2 hours or on low for 4 hrs or until very hot.
Top each serving with marshmallows, I also love whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon

Tips:

To speed things up, heat the water before adding it to the chocolate mixture.

Add a mocha flavour by stirring in instant coffee in step 2.

Add a cinnamon stick for a delicious twist.

If the edges burn you might want to cook it at a lower temperature next time. The hot chocolate isn’t ruined you just don’t want hit the sides when stirring and serving so that the little bits wont float in your drink.
