Are you freezing and buried under snow out there? It’s fun to see the pictures. I love a good snowstorm IF I can stay inside and don’t have to go anywhere. We hope you all are staying safe!
I thought you might need this awesome crockpot hot chocolate recipe to take you through the weekend. I made it over the holidays and it was deemed “best hot chocolate ever”. (Unless you’ve been to Ireland and had Insomnia hot chocolate. Then I will agree with you that Insomnia has the best hot chocolate ever. Ever. Ever. Ever. But this is a good substitute if you aren’t in Ireland!)
Best Ever Crockpot Hot Chocolate
(via Pinterest but I think it originally came from Sally’s Baking Addiction)
2 cups heavy cream
6 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
8 oz. semi sweet chocolate, chopped (I used a bag of chocolate chips)
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup unsweetened natural or dutch-process cocoa powder
Add all ingredients to your slow cooker and whisk until the cocoa is mixed in. Heat on low for up to 6 hours, whisking every 45 minutes to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn on the bottom. (The hot chocolate is ready to drink when the chocolate chips are melted and the temperature is right for you.) Top with marshmallows, whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolate shavings, or all of the above!
While you’re having a cup, pop over and pick out some new Worsted or Aran yarn for us to send you. Just buying big, thick, luscious, cozy yarn will surely make you feel warmer. And then you’ll get a Box of Loopy Fun next week, too! 🙂 You might consider these patterns: Grandmother Moon, Adama, Present, Timber Bay, or Pop Twizzle.

There’s a small company near me that makes marshmallows in many flavors and I’ve been wanting to give them a try, but needed a good hot chocolate recipe to go under their marshmallows. This just might do the trick. Thanks for sharing!
We have a marshmallow company like that here in Colorado, too, Lael! I guarantee this hot chocolate recipe is worthy of the task. 🙂
