Easy Crock Pot Skinny Hot Chocolate

Hi friends!

Only 17 days until Christmas and I’m here to put a little FA in your la la la!  <— Sorry, I get super cheesy around the holidays!

Don’t you just love snuggling up with Hot Chocolate this time of year.  I normally save my calories for food, but Christmas gets the best of me and adore a festive drink.

My Skinny Crock Pot Hot Chocolate totally fits the bill.

Crock Pot Skinny Hot Chocolate recipe- perfect for Christmas or any winter gathering/ Running in a Skirt

The joy of this recipe is it’s great for a family for small gathering where you want the Hot Chocolate to stay warm.  It is incredibly rich and decadent!  If you want a less sweet cup, I even included notes in the recipe to make it lighter.

    I have to say I have never made hot chocolate in a crock-pot, chocolate pudding yes but not hot chocolate. This would be perfect for large groups, I should have tried this when we were up north the weekend after Thanksgiving, trying to mix and make hot cocoa for 11 kids was interesting, especially when adults wanted a mug too!

    Would unsweetened almond milk work? I try to avoid sugar!

    And does tbis taste any different in the cockpit as opposed to cooking over a regular pot or even a microwave?

    This looks fantastic! What size crockpot do you use? BTW, I have a loaf of your Cocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Bread in the oven. We love it.

  16. Never would have thought of using a crock pot for hot chocolate! Hey why not it’s like a big bath of chocolate-ooh that ‘s an idea!

    Not 100% sure why you are putting it into mugs. The way I see it, just drink it straight from the crockpot. This is for one, right? Plus, it’ll keep it nice and warm ๐Ÿ˜€

    I can’t wait to try the crock pot hot coco! Sounds devine,

    I know : the countdown is officially on for Christmas !
    I usually respond quickly to your blog, but there
    are times when I’m not able to do it right away. I
    appreciate the way you go back later and respond
    to those who have responded to you after your first
    round of responses. I know at Thanksgiving I responded
    later and I shared more personally than I usually do. I appreciated
    you responding to those late responses from me and I appreciate
    that you take the time to regularly do that. Thank you Julie !
