January brings those cold winds of winter. And what’s better to cozy up inside away from that chilly air than with a delicious cup of hot cocoa. Now, you can go the easy route, of course, with some hot water and Swiss Miss packets. Or maybe you got some homemade hot chocolate in a Mason jar as a gift. But if you want to do it up right, try a recipe that involves your crock pot and the perfect ingredients for deliciousness!
Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
- 2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup caramels, unwrapped
- 4 cups milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- Optional: whipped cream, caramel sauce for topping
Add chocolate chips, caramel, milk, heavy cream, and vanilla to your slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for two hours. Stir the mixture. If the chocolate and caramels are not melted, cover and cook for 20 to 30 minutes more. When ready to serve, stir in the sea salt. Serve hot with whipped cream, drizzled with caramel sauce, if desired.
