Sweet Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

Today’s hot chocolate recipe all comes together in a slow cooker.  This recipe also calls for a can of sweetened condensed milk which gives it some extra sweetness.  The thing I love about this recipe is if you give the hot chocolate a good whisking after it is finished you can get a little frothy top on it. Mmmmmmm.

Sweet Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 6 cups milk (I used Skim)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and stir until the condensed milk is well blended into the mixture.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours - whisking it every 30 minutes.
  3. Once the 2 hours is up give it a final whisk and serve. Makes about 12 (1 cup) servings.

  • I made this two days ago and of course me and my daughters LOVED it! But the real test was my husband, who hates hot chocolate. He LOVED it! He loved it so much I just got back from grocery shopping and he made sure I had all the ingredients to make it again for Christmas tomorrow.

  • A coworker brought this for a brunch last year and it’s delicious. I made it at home and it was great the first time (following her added instructions to use high for the first hour to get the chips to melt). The second time, I made it early for an evening function because I would be out most of the afternoon – I cooked it on low for several hours. I left it much much longer than the recipe called for and it completely changed texture – I thought I had ruined it but I think it actually turned out better. It went from hot cocoa to the texture and taste of melted chocolate ice cream. So now I make it that way. Either way, the recipe is so rich that one small mug is enough or you will feel stuffed!

  • I find it rather comical you used skim milk – like the heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk could be offset??? This looks delicious, but I will not be trying it as it most definately is NOT diabetic friendly. 🙁

  • OMG! Someone brought this to work and it was a hit. It is like havinga dessert in a cup. Sooo good. You will not be dissapointed.
    The co-worker that brought it forgot to put the vanilla and it was still awesome.

  • What a wonderful looking recipe!!! I am going to make it for my daughter’s 1st BDay party tomorrow….about how much does it make?

  • I’ve seen this recipe on Pinterest and I haven’t tried it yet. I can see the appeal if you need to make it for a crowd.

  • Ohhh I would have never thought to make hot chocolate in the slow cooker! I love this idea and think that it would be perfect to create for a brunch (or children’s sleep over) and serve as part of a hot chocolate ‘bar’ filled with all sorts of hot chocolate toppings.
