When it comes to feeding a crowd, the slow cooker aka crock pot is such a big help! Slow cooker or crockpot…whatever you call it, this recipe for creamy hot chocolate made in your crockpot is the best you’ll ever have. Forget the dry powder hot cocoa mix and go right for the good stuff.
What you need to make Creamy Crockpot Hot Chocolate:
- heavy cream

How to make Creamy Crockpot Hot Chocolate:
- Combine ingredients: Add all ingredients to your crock pot set to low for 2 hours. Stir every 10 minutes or so to make sure it’s well combined. Once all the chocolate chips are melted turn it down to the warm setting.

How to store Creamy Crockpot Hot Chocolate:
If you’re lucky enough to have any of this creamy goodness leftover, you can store it in an airtight container, or glass jars. You can reheat it on the stove or in the microwave when you’re ready to serve again.
Chocolate chips for hot chocolate:
The recipe is really simple. I’ve made this with milk chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips for a more decadent chocolate flavor. I love using Guittard brand milk chocolate chips…they are the best!
Hot Chocolate too sweet?
If you are wanting a more rich hot chocolate with less sweetness, we recommend using a semi sweet chocolate chip rather than milk chocolate chip. You could even try mixing the two to find your perfect level of sweetness.
Hot Chocolate Topping Ideas:
There are so many fun things to top hot cocoa with! To name a few:
- Whipped cream
- Crushed peppermint candy canes
- Caramel drizzle
- Chocolate drizzle
- Toffee bits
- Cute cool whip shapes
