Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

Winter is the time of year that I crave warm beverages… mostly because I’m always freezing!

Somehow between hot baths and warm beverages, I manage to survive.  Seriously.  It’s been 1 and 2 degrees all week when I’m driving to school in the mornings- BRRR!

Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate is a delicious way to keep the whole family snuggly-warm this winter :)

    Your hot chocolate looks so good! I’m a hot chocolate addict, since I am not a coffee drinker, I always get hot chocolate whenever I’m out with my husband or friends… I’ve been wanting to make some in my slow cooker too though! This looks delicious!!!

    The Hot Chocolate sounds wonderful. One question, are the 2 cups of marshmallows in the recipe only for going on top of the hot chocolate or do they go in with the other ingredients in the crockpot?
