Confession time for my #unpopularopinion: I don’t like coffee and I never have.
Hot chocolate? I’ll drink that all fall and winter long. I make it at home all the time. Even though I rarely go to
McDonald’s, they have really good hot chocolate.
As much as I drink hot chocolate, I don’t think I ever had crockpot hot chocolate before I made it for this recipe. I have been missing out, for real.How to Make Crockpot Hot Chocolate (GF, SF, DF) Click To Tweet
It’s really simple to make and I really don’t know why I deprived myself so long honestly. The recipe that I’m posting is gluten- and soy-free, but has directions on how to make it dairy-free as well.
-1/2 c cocoa OR 2 c chocolate chips
-1.5 cups heavy cream OR 1 can coconut milk
-1 14 oz can of condensed milk (coconut milk is also an alternative to condensed milk)
-6 cups of milk (can be substituted with dairy-free/lactose-free milk)
-1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Now, take all these ingredients and put them in your crockpot. Put crockpot on high for 2 hours.
That is it. Seriously. You may now serve your crockpot hot chocolate.
Of course, you can add marshmallows, cinnamon, nutmeg, CocoWhip, or garnish with a peppermint stick (my personal favorite) to your mug.
If you use Swiss Miss Gourmet Hot Chocolate, it *is* gluten- and soy-free, but is NOT dairy-free. For the chocolate chips, I recommend Enjoy Life’s Mega Chunks. They’re free of the top eight allergens.
