DIY Holiday Hot Chocolate Bar
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.
