Ideal slow cooker size: 3 qt
1/2 cup dry baking cocoa
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
7 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Marshmallows, as many as you want
1.) In crock-pot combine milk, water and vanilla.
2.) Add dry cocoa and salt, stir until smooth.
3.) Cover and cook on high 2 hours or on low for 4 hrs or until very hot.
4.) Top each serving with marshmallows, I also love whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon
- To speed things up, heat the water before adding it to the chocolate mixture.
- Add a mocha flavor by stirring in instant coffee in step 2.
- Add a cinnamon stick for a delicious twist.
- If the edges burn you might want to cook it at a lower temperature next time. The hot chocolate isn’t ruined you just don’t want hit the sides when stirring and serving so that the little bits wont float in your drink.
I clipped this recipe since I wanted to try to make hot chocolate by my own hand.
And it is simple enough for beginners too. It will be a good practice to make a dessert.
Always keep in mind, you don’t have to follow the recipe with exactly same amount of ingredients.
Why not to try more sweet or different flavor?
Maybe we can try pumpkin flavor for Holloween.
