It's like a chocolate milk shake

only it's hot! ~Nicole

This hot chocolate recipe is insanely good. It's super easy and should be added to your Christmas traditions. It would be a great Christmas Eve/Morning family thing.

This recipe is also just one more in a LONG list of reasons why I love my crockpot!

Here's what you need:

I always think that there is one special thing in a recipe that is the secret ingredient. Every part of this recipe is the secret ingredient. Seriously don't leave anything out!

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups milk chocolate chips (the whole bag)
6 cups of milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

I used whole milk and the second go round I used semi sweet chocolate chips. I think that you could change up the milk you use and the chips. The hubs LOVES dark chocolate so I want to try that!

Anywho, dump everything in the crockpot and put on low for about two hours. I like to give it a stir about half way through to see how the chocolate is coming along. If it's still a ways away from being a lovely melty state then put it up to high.

It's going to need a little bit of whisking to get everything incorporated.

Add your marshmellows or whipped cream and you have heaven in a cup.
The little bits of chocolate are sooo delicious!

Seriously, if you take this to your Christmas party or family gathering you will get hugs and presents. It is so easy but so delicious. People rarely take the time to make hot chocolate that doesn't involve an envelope anymore. It's simple and fool proof and is so much better than the Swiss Miss.

Santa will thank you!
