    I love hot chocolate and I love my crock pot but I never thought about using them together! Genius idea! It would be great for a snow day or cold winter day. I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. This sounds absolutely delicious! I will be making this for sure during the holidays. What a great, easy and fun way to serve hot chocolate at parties for kids and adults too. It’d be fun to have a little hot chocolate bar too with add-ins like marshmallows and candy canes!

    I never thought of making cocoa in the crockpot. That’s terrific. I may forego my powdered cocoa habit all together this winter!
