“Making hot chocolate in quantity in a slow-cooker is an easy make-ahead drink for parties. Once the hot chocolate is ready, you can use the "keep warm" setting to keep it hot throughout the gathering. Plus, take it to the next level by setting up a hot chocolate toppings bar with bowls of mini marshmallows, crushed peppermint candies, sprinkles, whipped cream and cinnamon sticks at the ready to stir into your cocoa.”


    • 12 cups low-fat milk
    • ½ cup sugar
    • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • ¼ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 1 Stir milk, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, vanilla and salt together in a 5-to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low until very hot, but not boiling, about 2 hours.
