Crock Pot Hot Cocoa

Decadent Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa
Serves 8
Put your slow cooker to work for an easy treat that your family and guests will love throughout the holiday season and all winter long! I made this for our family get-together this past weekend, and it was gone in a flash. This is a very rich beverage, swap milk for the heavy cream or use skim milk instead of whole if you'd like to lighten it up a bit. Set up an assortment of toppings such as marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, crushed candy canes, and shakers of cinnamon, cocoa powder and cayenne (for those that like a little spice). Include a small bottle of Kahlua or peppermint liquer for the adults. Guests can help themselves - at least while it lasts!
