Creamy Crock Pot Hot Chocolate
If you’re “lucky” enough to live in a part of the country that’s snowy and cold all winter long, then you can really use some warming up on those freezing cold days. Whether you call it hot chocolate or hot cocoa (what DO you call it, by the way?) you will LOVE this smooth and comforting creamy crock pot hot chocolate recipe for the slow cooker.
Whatever you call it, it is absolutely delicious and perfect on a cold day and is a must try for special occasions or just a lazy winter day spent at home. I made it again recently for my family and they all raved about it and said it was the best hot chocolate they have ever had. It would be hard to go back to the hot cocoa packets after trying this – be warned!
This would be great to serve at your Christmas Eve parties! Just saying…
I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!
This is a really great hands-off and super easy way to make hot chocolate for a party, Christmas, or any holiday gathering…basically anywhere there will be a good crowd of people! I made a double batch of this for my big Groundhog day party and it made my life a heck of a lot easier so I could concentrate on the rest of the food-making.
Mouthwatering, decadent Crock Pot Hot Chocolate (this coming from someone who isn’t even crazy about chocolate)…..once you try this hot chocolate recipe, you won’t go back to store bought packets, I promise you that.
How to Make Hot Chocolate From Scratch:
1. Chop your chocolate as finely as possible and add to a metal bowl.
2. Bring a saucepan of water to a vigorous simmer and place the bowl of chocolate on top. Whisk the chocolate as it begins to melt and continue to do so until it is glossy and smooth. Hold the side of the bowl with a side towel or hot pad because it will become hot. Remove the bowl from the heat.
3. In a second saucepan, add one cup of whole milk for every cup of cocoa you will be making. Don’t reuse the first saucepan because it will be too hot for the cold milk. Over medium-low heat while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, heat up the milk. Do not let it boil or it could bubble over or scorch.
4. Once the milk is heated, add the warm melted chocolate along with a pinch of salt and whisk until combined. At this stage, add anything else you will be using to flavor your cocoa such as ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger.
5. Pour the cocoa into mugs, top with freshly whipped cream or baby marshmallows and add a cinnamon or peppermint stick, if desired. Garnish with sea salt, powdered cinnamon, or leftover chocolate shavings and enjoy.

There’s so much that goes into the magic of Christmas morning.
The anticipation, the pajamas, the food, the music, the presents, the Christmas tree, and of course, the sense of family and giving. As a kid, unwrapping the last present is sort of depressing. That means it’s almost all over.
But that also meant it was almost time for Christmas breakfast, which made the depressing fact that presents were done with that much easier to accept. Our family tradition was almost always cinnamon rolls. This year, however, I think I’ll be making these Hot Chocolate Pancakes! As a chocoholic, this recipe satisfies all my cravings instantly.

Get into the holiday spirit with this Danish Christmas bread. The ingredient list is lengthy, but you're likely to have many of the items on hand and the rest are grocery staples. This holiday loaf is traditionally topped with coarse pearl sugar and then drizzled with an almond-flavored icing. What's not to love?
Ree takes refrigerator and pantry staples like asparagus, onions, potatoes and olives and them them into a dish fit for the holidays: a delicious frittata.
Cranberry-Orange Cinnamon Rolls
Spread the holiday cheer with swirls of cream cheese and cranberry icing spread over fragrant, orange cinnamon rolls. To make these for Christmas morning, prep the dough the night before and store it in your refigerator. In the morning, let the cinnamon rolls sit out at room temperature for two hours (while everyone opens gifts!) then bake and frost.
How do you make bacon even better? Give it a dunk in maple syrup before cooking. Valerie adds even more flavor by stirring some sage and cayenne into the syrup. When this bacon comes out of the oven it will be well-browned, with a perfectly sweet-and-spicy glaze all over.

A batch of these fluffy buttermilk biscuits will be worth the early morning wakeup call. We add melty Cheddar to the biscuit dough and layer it inside for a guaranteed-cheesy flavor in every bite!
Gluten-Free Sausage-Kale Strata
Gluten-free bread goes stale faster than wheat bread, so a flavorful strata filled with kale, sausage and lots of cheese is a great way to use up any extra that you have on hand.

This hearty quick bread is loaded with grated carrot, dried cranberries and toasted walnut for a breakfast that&rsquos guaranteed to fill you up.

Sexy Superfood Hot Chocolate
When I woke up this morning there was some thick fog hugging the hills. And you could feel that the rain wasn’t too far behind. It was dark and gloomy and almost enough for me to stay in bed all snuggled warm. But I’ve been so determined to get back into shape for my Portugal trip that I threw on some gym clothes, tossed on a baseball cap and headed out the door. And honestly, I was quite proud of myself! Because what I really wanted to do was lay in my cozy bed and simultaneously whip up this sexy superfood hot chocolate. Perhaps with some go-go-gadget arms?! (you remember Inspector Gadget, right?).
So what turns your classic hot chocolate into a superfood hot chocolate….and even better…a sexy superfood hot chocolate? Well, let’s take a look…
It all starts with the raw cacao, a potent antioxidant with mood-enhancing compounds and you guessed it, aphrodisiac qualities. Studies have shown that the chemicals in raw cacao can balance your hormones, improve libido and restore feelings of well-being. Good stuff – but it gets even better!
Because then we add maca, a root grown in the high altitude regions of Peru that’s known for it’s positive effects on hormones, fertility, libido, energy levels and stamina.
But if you’re wondering why this superfood hot chocolate is a little more golden in color than a traditional hot chocolate, it’s probably due to the goji berries. I have a big container of goji berries that I love to snack on. Some eat raisins, and well, I eat goji berries. So I thought, why not add them to the mix? Goji berries are the most nutritionally-dense fruit on earth and contain all essential amino acids. They’re also known to improve mood, energy, sleeping habits, immune function and overall wellness.
More sweetness and a little spice comes in the form of dates, cinnamon, cardamom, sea salt and vanilla bean powder. Though if you don’t have vanilla bean powder, feel free to use vanilla extract.
And finally we come to the last ingredients – ground chia seeds and coconut oil. The ground chia seeds are loaded with digestive health benefits and omega-3’s. They also make the hot chocolate thick and super delicious. And the tablespoon of coconut oil adds amazing medicinal benefits and helps to produce the frothy bubbles on top.
Whew! Lots of superfoods, vitamins, minerals and nutrients packed into this little drink! It sounds like a lot of stuff, but honestly, it couldn’t be easier to make because all you have to do is heat up your favorite milk (coconut, almond, hemp, etc – or water) and add it to a high-powered blender, like my fave Vitamix, along with the other ingredients and in 20 seconds you’ve got this amazingly delicious and frothy hot chocolate concoction.
