Ditch the instant hot chocolate and make this Rich & Creamy Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa instead. Perfect for family movie nights and holiday parties!
I was in a cafe in Germany with my mom and my sister the first time I had real hot cocoa. The kind with melted chocolate whisked into milk and topped with piles of whipped cream… I’m not a huge dessert person, but that mug of hot cocoa? It was life-changing.
With the holiday season upon us, now is the time to enjoy the good stuff life has to offer. In my house, that means this Rich & Creamy Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa. From evenings cuddled up in front of the fire with the family watching a Holiday flick to driving around town to see the holiday lights, we’re warming up from the inside out with piping hot mugs of hot cocoa.
How to make Rich & Creamy Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa
The secret to making this rich and creamy slow cooker hot cocoa rests in using quality ingredients, like AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate. Notes of cinnamon, vanilla and orange shine in this finely grated dark chocolate – a combination based upon authentic recipes from the 1750s used by early American chocolatiers.
As it’s finely grated, AMERICAN HERITAGE Chocolate melts easily into the milk and cream for a smooth and rich finish. After adding all of the ingredients to the slow cooker, set it on low for two hours. Stir it until it’s smooth, then reduce the heat setting to warm.
Pour into warm mugs and garnish with marshmallows, whipped cream and sprinkles for some extra holiday flair!
Whether baking a gift for friends or experimenting with a prized family recipe, AMERICAN HERITAGE Chocolate Finely Grated Chocolate is a simple solution for melting chocolate perfectly! You can use it to replace semi-sweet chocolate 1:1 in any recipe. Purchase AMERICAN HERITAGE Chocolate on Amazon, here.
