What is your favorite season?
Mine is winter – I love it when the first frost hits, and the smell of snow hangs low in the air.
Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
I love bundling in sweaters and scarves, seeing my breath in the air, and building snowmen.
For me, fall and winter feel…. cozy. I envision myself sitting by the fireplace, with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate.
My second favorite hot chocolate is from Starbucks – just their regular hot chocolate with a squirt of raspberry flavoring. Mmmmmm.
However, my first favorite hot chocolate is the creamiest, most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted – and it’s made in a slow cooker.
We made this for our Christmas party last year in our home, and the entire crockpot was drained within the first 30 minutes. It’s a recipe that a friend gave to us in a homemade cookbook of their own favorite recipes; it has been one of our favorite wedding presents that we still use!
Just a few weeks ago (so 9 months later!) a gentleman at church introduced us to his visiting family as “the couple with the best house parties and most incredible hot chocolate I’ve ever had!”
6 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 package (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Add all ingredients to your crockpot, and set it on “low.” Cook for 2 hours, making sure to stir at least every 10 minutes. Once all of the chocolate chips are melted, you can change the setting to “warm.”
Shake it up
Love dark chocolate? Or want to make the recipe your own? Experiment with different flavors of chocolate chips!
You can also stir individual cups with flavored candy canes, or even top it with whipped cream and strawberry syrup. Last winter, we bought Almond Joy flavored coffee creamer and added it to our hot chocolate – it was delicious!
