This hot cocoa recipe is to die for! It has been floating around Pinterest for weeks and I just had to try it! It is truly the most decadent mug of cocoa I've ever tasted! Very delicious and very simple to make! I served it in a crock pot at our neighborhood Christmas party. I set up a little "Hot Cocoa" bar with candy cane dust, cookies, marshmallows and peppermint marshmallows. It was a big hit with the kids! A few of the adults added a little Bailey's to theirs also! This is a must-make during the holidays! Enjoy!
6 cups milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk (I used only 1/2 a can, FYI)
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
In a large pot over low heat, combine all of the above ingredients. Stir regularly for 30-40 minutes until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated with other ingredients.
If you're making this for a large group of people you can cook it in the crock pot on low for a couple hours. Remember to stir often during the melting process. This recipe is easily doubled.
