When the weather starts to cool off I like to break out the slow cookers. I use them to make everything from breakfast, like this delicious oatmeal, to desserts and drinks like this lava cake and delicious mulled cider!
There’s nothing more comforting than an indulgent cup of hot chocolate on a cold evening. This recipe is also a really nice one for parties and gatherings! You can whip up a double batch and set it out with cups and toppings so everyone can enjoy a sweet treat!
Here’s what you’ll need to make a delicious batch of peanut butter hot chocolate:
This recipe uses milk, heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, milk chocolate chips, and vanilla extract.
There’s nothing complicated or funky going on and it’s nice to know exactly what you are putting into your recipes as opposed to those packets that contain a lot of mystery ingredients.
Of course all good hot chocolate recipes are best when topped with even more ooey, gooey toppings. I’d recommend Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter cups, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, or some mini marshmallows!
How to make Crockpot peanut butter hot chocolate:
Place the milk, heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk in your crockpot. Whisk to combine well.
Stir in the peanut butter and milk chocolate chips, these will get easier to incorporate as they melt with the heat of the Crockpot. Don’t worry if they’re not combined at first!
Cover the crockpot and set to low for 1.5 hours. Stir every half hour, this is important so the peanut butter, chocolate, and other ingredients combine well and don’t sit on the bottom and burn!
Whisk well before serving. Add the vanilla now, if using, the same goes for the mini marshmallows!
Garnish as desired with chocolate drizzle, whipped cream, peanut butter cups, or Reese’s pieces!
