Slow cookers are busy moms’ best friends.
They cook us meals when we’re out running errands, bake cakes for us on the weekends and greet us with a rich and creamy cup of slow cooker homemade hot chocolate.
There’s no question as to why slow cooker hot chocolate recipes are huge hits during the holidays and colder seasons.
We all want to kick back, relax and cozy up with a warm cup of hot chocolate.
Wouldn’t it be dreamy if your hot chocolate was always the perfect temperature, even if you made it hours before?
I stopped buying the over-rated powder stuff so I could our family to a homemade cup of hot chocolate. It’s been worth the sacrifice..;0)
I’m a firm believer in chocolate fixing a bad day. That’s why I keep a stash in my freezer…shhh!
What makes this simple hot chocolate recipe so incredible?
Heavy cream and chocolate chips.
Using heavy cream and switching out cocoa powder with chocolate chips makes all the difference! It’s crazy how those two tweaks takes a so-so cup of hot chocolate and transforms it into something marvelous.
If you need a super-quick cup of hot chocolate, check out this stove top, two ingredient hot chocolate recipe that our family makes every single week! For that recipe, we only use milk instead of heavy whipping cream, because it’s our super-fast, kind-of-lazy recipe we make in just minutes. Seriously — set your timer and see how long it takes to make two-ingredient hot chocolate.
Make this slow cooker recipe when you’ve got a busy shopping day coming up! It feels so good (and smells so good) to come home to a cup of hot cocoa that’s ready to serve. You can grab a mug, pour a cup of hot chocolate and prop up your feet for a few minutes. Every busy mom needs a little break here and there!
Oooh! Simple tip when you’re whisking in a slow cooker: be careful not to scratch your slow cooker insert.
You want your slow cooker to last for a long time. Because slow cooker recipes — like Chicken and Dumplings — are life-savers for moms!
