Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

4-6 hours to prepare

Servings: 8


6 cups whole milk

2 cups heavy cream

8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

whipped cream, to garnish

chocolate sauce, to garnish

(big and small) marshmallows, to garnish

chocolate sprinkles, to garnish


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cocoa powder.
  2. Add chopped chocolate, then cover slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6. Make sure to stir every hour so chocolate melts consistently and doesn’t burn.
  3. Remove cover and, optional, stir in marshmallows. Transfer to mugs and serve hot, garnished with marshmallows, whipped cream and sprinkles.
