Entertaining or Hostess Gift
Picture this. You’ve got the crew coming over for Halloween, Christmas, Chanukah, New Years! Freezing cold, perhaps from sledding and snowball fights on a Winters day. They enter your door and the aroma of warm chocolate hits them like a ton of bricks. Anxiously they wonder around searching for the scent that caught them drooling all around.
Enter the “Slow Cooked Hot Chocolate Bar.” A crockpot filled with your FAVORITE hot cocoa recipe surrounded by topping after yummy topping waiting to be scooped up. No need to go spending crazy on this family-friendly activity. (Although nobody says a shot of schnapps for the adults is off-limits.)
So grab your ladle, handful of mugs and let’s get this party started!
Servings – 8
5 cups milk
2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1 small can)
Peppermint Sticks/Cinnamon Sticks
Combine all cocoa ingredients in the slow cooker
Let cook for about 2 hours covered on low heat.
Stir about 4 times throughout so the chocolate chips get nice and melted.
Serve toppings alongside in individual bowls or vases short on a large tray.
