Crockpot Hot Cocoa is our favorite winter beverage.  There are only 5 ingredients needed and one of them is a can of sweetened condensed milk which I always seem to have in my stockpile.

Give this recipe a try. It is perfect when you are hosting a cookie decorating party or for after you go sledding. We love to turn it on in the morning and enjoy it after an afternoon in the snow.

Over Christmas break we had some snow and the boys wanted to go out and play. So I decided this would be a perfect time to put Crockpot Hot Cocoa on. It only takes 2 hours on high to make and that is just enough time for me.

We like to top our Hot Cocoa with Homemade Whipped Cream!  What I love is that I know what ingredients are in this tasty hot cocoa!  Better tasting than the powder for sure!

  2. i prefer to use milk rather than water in my hot chocolate. does the sweetened condensed milk and water compare to just using milk???

  3. Hey there! This looks yummy! Could you tell me about how much it makes? I’m trying to gather recipes for a work event I’m hosting and need enough for a small crowd.


  4. I am a teacher and I want to serve this to my class. If I add boiling water right away, Will this be ready to serve without cooking for two hours?
