Crockpot Reese’s Hot Chocolate Recipe
Is there any more perfect dessert combination than peanut butter and chocolate?
This rich, decadent peanut butter hot chocolate recipe is so incredibly satisfying and easy to make! About 10 minutes of prep time (including hauling out your crockpot) and less than 2 hours later, you’ll have some of the best hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted!
Crockpot hot chocolate is a great option for family movie nights or get-togethers with family or friends. You get to offer your guests a warm drink (with all those fun garnishes) without having to make each drink individually.
You can even set up a little hot chocolate bar with the garnishes and let them self-serve.
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.
Check out our quick video to see how easy this crockpot hot chocolate is to make (this is for our triple chocolate hot chocolate – the only change is that we only use milk chocolate chips in this recipe and we added peanut butter) – and then don’t forget to scroll down to grab our free printable recipe:
