Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate
Whether you spend Christmas Eve with a large group of family and friends or have a quiet evening at home, this generous batch of hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm up the evening. I’ve seen a few versions floating around the internet – this one worked best for me!
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk 6 cups milk 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups of milk chocolate chipsrecipe
- Combine all the ingredients into a slow cooker and whisk together until well combined.
- Cover and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until it is hot and chocolate chips are melted.
- Stir briskly with a whisk before spooning into mugs.
Want to get creative with your hot chocolate? Experiment with one of the delicious flavors of chips know available – like mint chocolate! Wish your whipped cream lasted longer? Pipe it into swirls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and stick in the freezer – it’s also an excellent way to cool down hot chocolate enough for younger kids!
Delight kids from 9 to 99 with this extra friendly holiday pizza.
It’s The Grinch!
If your Christmas Eve traditions involve Dr Seuss’s classic humbug, this glittery green drink is the perfect addition. Simply combine 7up or Sprite with Lime Sherbert until you have a slushie mix. On a paper plate, combine 1/2 cup of sugar with a drop or two of green food coloring and combine well. Wet the rim of your glasses, dip into the colored sugar, then ladle in your Grinch Punch and start the movie!
