DIY Holiday Hot Chocolate Bar

  • One bowl

  • Kid-Friendly

  • 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

“Hot Cocoa”

  • 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)


  • Marshmallows

  • Toasted Cinnamon

  • Whipped Cream

  • Peppermint Sticks/Cinnamon Sticks

  • Caramel Sauce

  • Chocolate Shavings


  1. Combine all cocoa ingredients in the slow cooker

  2. Let cook for about 2 hours covered on low heat.

  3. Stir about 4 times throughout so the chocolate chips get nice and melted.

  4. Serve toppings alongside in individual bowls or vases short on a large tray.
