Slow Cooker Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 can (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 cups milk (don’t use skim milk)
  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ cup finely crushed peppermint
  • Garnishes: (optional)
  • Whipped cream
  • Crushed candy cane
  • Marshmallows
  1. Combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla, milk and cream in your slow cooker and whisk together until combined. (This will take a few minutes for the cocoa to mix in.)
  2. Cook on low for 2 hours or until heated through, stirring about every 20 or 30 minutes.
  3. Serve with whipped cream, marshmallows, or more crushed peppermint candy (or all three!).
This can also be done on your stove top by combining all ingredients in a large saucepan and whisk until combined. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until heated through (don't let boil).
