Hot Chocolate and Tree Decorating Night: Make decorating the tree together a special Christmas Tradition! Take the time to remember where the family Christmas ornaments came from and what makes them extra special! Make the night extra special with this crock pot hot cocoa recipe!
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
6 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
mini marshmallows, for topping
In a 4-quart (or larger) slow cooker, combine all the ingredients. Give it a good stir. Updated to add: Some folks felt it was easier to heat up a cup of milk, then stir in the cocoa. It was mentioned that the cocoa blends in better this way. Then the warm milk mixture is then stirred in with the rest of the ingredients.
Cover and cook on low for about 2 hours. Stir occasionally as it warms up.
It's ready when all the chocolate chips have melted and mixture is warm.
Ladle into mugs and top with marshmallows or whipped cream and a mini candy cane!
Countdown to Christmas Day: Sit with your family and cut and connect paper strips to form a chain marking each day until Christmas.
