We love this recipe so much, as it makes such smooth and velvety hot cocoa. My daughter’s 1st grade teacher made it for the class one year and gave me the recipe. It sure does remind me of when my kids were younger. Enjoy!
Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say after making this hot chocolate:
This was fun to make and the perfect time of year for it! I have made other slow cooker hot cocoa recipes and they never turned out as awesome as this one — it’s easy to follow and tastes so great! I did find that whisking the hot cocoa a few times really helped to incorporate the chocolate into the milk before serving. I especially love that it can be refrigerated and it heats up beautifully the next day!
