Crock Pot Hot Chocolate

I am not a coffee drinker. I never have been. I do drink a little bit of tea occasionally, but I love hot chocolate. I think this will be the best hot chocolate you will ever have. Its super easy to make and is available anytime you want it after you make a big batch. (That is, is everyone else doesn’t drink it first).  Now, I will warn you. This is NOT the healthiest recipe ever, but it is really creamy, not too chocolatey, and rich, but not so much that you won’t want a second cup. If you have a better recipe, I challenge you to send it to me. I would love to try it. I made mine with skim milk, but that is what we drink, but whatever you use will work just fine. I have also tried semi sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate and a combination of all of them, but personally, I feel the milk chocolate is the best. Have fun and try different ones for yourself. I bet even  mint chips would be wonderful.

1.5 C Whipping Cream, 1/14oz. can sweetened condensed milk, 6 cups milk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 C milk chocolate chips and a dash of cinnamon.

Stir together everything in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally until mixture is hot and the chocolate chips have melted. Stir again before serving and garnish with whipped cream,  marshmallows or just plain like I did here.

One piece of advice though. Do not leave on all day, as it will curdle a bit. It tastes fine, but the consistency is a bit strange. I would recommend when done serving, put in the refrigerator and bring out again when ready to use. Heat up again in the crock pot or warm in the microwave.
