    Cook on Low Heat:

    Set the crockpot to low heat and cook the hot chocolate mixture for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally to ensure that the chocolate is fully melted and the ingredients are well combined.

    Add Vanilla and Salt:

    About 15 minutes before serving, add the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor. Stir well.

    Serve:

    Ladle the hot chocolate into mugs and top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, or chocolate shavings if desired.

    Keep Warm:

    Set the crockpot to the “Keep Warm” setting if available, to maintain the perfect serving temperature throughout your gathering.

    Enjoy:

    Serve the Crockpot Hot Chocolate to your guests and enjoy the rich and creamy goodness!

    Tips:

    If you prefer a darker chocolate flavor, you can use all semi-sweet chocolate chips.

    Adjust the sweetness according to your taste by adding more or less sugar.

    For an adult version, consider adding a splash of your favorite liqueur, such as peppermint schnapps or Baileys Irish Cream.

    This Crockpot Hot Chocolate is perfect for warming up a crowd during cold weather or for cozy nights by the fire. Enjoy!
