Crockpot Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe
This hot chocolate recipe is for the true peppermint fans out there!
We made this peppermint hot chocolate for a family movie night. Not only did my daughter go crazy for how cute it looks, it was incredibly refreshing and satisfying. We didn’t even need any other movie snacks.
This crockpot hot chocolate would be perfect for a holiday get together. Just prepare it at least an hour before you expect your first guests to arrive and it will be ready to serve once the party is in full swing.
It’s great because it is a low maintenance way to treat your guests to an indulgent treat, without having to make every cup individually. The crockpot keeps the hot chocolate warm, so all you have to do is ladle it out and garnish (if desired).
A creamy, rich and delicious crockpot peppermint hot chocolate dressed to the nines with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and crushed peppermint candies. And don’t forget a candy cane stir stick!
This is the crockpot that I use the most often – it has a thermoshield which not only prevents little fingers from being burned if the kids touch the outside of the crockpot, but it’s also great for bringing along to potlucks. I also like that I can set the cook time on it, so if we end up taking too long playing outside (or running errands) I don’t have to worry about the food burning.
