Crockpot Hot Chocolate

2 hr 5 min Prep: 5 min Cook: 2 hr
Serves: 6 Save

Ingredients (9)

  • 3 cups whole milk must be whole for the best texture!
  • 1 cup half-and-half or heavy cream if you want to make this outrageously decadent
  • 6 ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate* coarsely chopped (between 62% and 70%; the darker, the more intense the chocolate flavor will be; I used 66%)
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder or Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder or coffee powder optional for a more intense flavor
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Toppings of choice: marshmallows whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel, a handful of extra chocolate chips
