Crock Pot Hot Cocoa

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3-4 cups whole milk*

1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt


Add cocoa to a cold crock pot. Whisk in 3 cups of milk until well combined. You always want to add wet to dry (instead of dry to wet) to prevent clumping. Add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and salt and mix well. Heat on high until simmering then add milk to taste*. Return to a simmer then reduce to “keep warm” or low for serving.


*I make this with only 3 cups of milk because I love a super-rich, luxurious hot cocoa but Husband likes it better made with more milk. Start with 3 cups then add milk to taste.


Makes 8-10 servings. Double recipe if you’re making this for a party or bigger crowd. Store leftovers in the fridge up to one week then reheat in the microwave.
