Crock Pot Hot Chocolate

Making homemade hot chocolate in the crock pot is a quick and easy way to warm up in the winter. Step-by-step photos teach you how to make this rich hot chocolate! 

  • Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6-10 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 50 grams Granulated Sugar
  • 8oz Good Quality Chocolate, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Good Quality Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract



  1. Place all of the ingredients except the vanilla into a slow cooker. Whisk together to dissolve the cocoa powder then turn on low and cook for 2-3 hours. 
  2. Check the mixture at 1 hour 30 minutes to see if your chocolate has melted, if so whisk to combine until all the chocolate is incorporated into the liquid.
  3. Turn the setting to "keep warm" and mix every 30 minutes or so to keep the chocolate from separating. Avoid using the "high" setting as it can burn the chocolate. 
  4. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days.
