If you're lucky enough to live in a place that's covered with snow this Christmas, then odds are good you'll be spending plenty of time outside with the kiddos during the holiday break.
But all that snowman building and sledding can leave you a bit on the chilly side, which is why you'll love coming indoors to warm up with this Crock-Pot hot chocolate recipe from the Crockpot Ladies.
Forget boxed mixes or stirring your own to heat in the microwave. By having a slow cooker full of warm chocolate goodness ready to go, you'll have more time to relax and put your feet up!
As moms, we have to enjoy these little moments of rest while we can.
Crock-Pot Hot Chocolate:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (14 oz. can) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweeted cocoa powder
6 cups milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
In a large Crock-Pot, combine all ingredients and stir. Cover with lid and cook on low for 2 hours, whisking every now and then to combine the melted chocolate chips with the milk.
Ladle into mugs and serve with marshmallows or whipped cream.
What is your favorite hot chocolate topping?
