Some people may hate the title of this blog, they may grumble, turn up their nose and start counting down the days till glorious spring emerges. Others enjoy the fact that Kansas is one of the states that gets to experience different seasons throughout the year. Whichever side of the thermometer you are on, we can always find something that we love and enjoy about this time of year.
Many of you will be celebrating the holidays with family and friends this upcoming weekend. Socializing and stuffing our faces will consume us! One thing to make the holidays sweeter than they already are is homemade hot chocolate. Once you try this, I bet you won’t go back to instant hot cocoa!
Crockpot Hot Chocolate Recipe
1.5 cups whipping cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 cups of milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients into a medium crockpot. Turn on low for 2 hours while stirring occasionally. Top off your cup of cocoa with some fluffy marshmallows.
Hopefully this will brighten your holidays and reassure you that winter is not all that bad. Stay inside cuddled up on those frigid days and enjoy a cup of homemade hot chocolate while you’re waiting out winter!
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
