Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate Recipe
I love all things made in a slow cooker, but this peppermint hot chocolate recipe has got to be one of my favorites. It’s just so comforting and cozy! Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? This peppermint version is just one of the many ways you could make slow cooker hot chocolate your own. Use the base recipe but switch up some of the ingredients to make your favorite flavors!
My blogging friends are super creative with flavor combos for their crockpot hot chocolate recipes.

How to Make Slow Cooker Peppermint Hot Chocolate
I wish you could taste how creamy this slow cooker peppermint hot chocolate goodness is…oh wait, you can! With just 5 ingredients and almost no thought whatsoever, you can make this slow cooker hot chocolate for yourself. It’s just so simple AND so delicious.
The base for this crockpot hot chocolate recipe is heavy cream, skim milk, sweetened condensed milk, and milk chocolate chips. Then we add in peppermint extract to give it flavor, but you can switch out those extra flavors if you don’t want peppermint.
How to make hot chocolate in a slow cooker:
- Combine all ingredients in the crockpot.
- Set it to low heat.
- Let it cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
That’s it! It’s so easy. Just spoon it into a mug, top it with marshmallows, and add in a candy cane if you want to get super festive! Because why not?
Crockpot Hot Chocolate Recipe
I looooove hot chocolate. I especially love serving it to guests during the holidays. On Christmas Eve when the snow is falling, and family is gathered around the fireplace to chat and get ready for a big day of eating and gifts and celebrations, that peppermint hot chocolate is the perfect way to bring us all together. Serving hot chocolate for a big group though…that can be a bit of a hassle if I’m being honest.
Slow Cooker hot chocolate fixes that, though, because you just set it and forget it. Plus you can easily make enough for everyone in one big batch. Perfect!
I hope everyone has the absolute best Christmas Eve and Christmas. Love to all!

Love this recipe, I have made it past two years… Wished I could find the cups like these!!
The mugs are from Williams Sonoma, but I don’t think they sell them online anymore!
My sister made this last December for an event for our local animal shelter. It was such a huge hit we ran out super fast! Can you give me advice on how I can quadruple this recipe- what kind of items to use, etc? I’ve never had to serve a large crowd, would like advice in going about this.
T-TOTTALLY AWESOME….LOVE IT… THE WHOLE FAMILY YOUNG & OLD…..
So happy to hear it!
The hot chocolate and cookie look amazing. Perfect combination and just in time for Christmas and Christmas Eve. It looks so inviting – love it!!
Thanks! So easy and good
This hot chocolate sounds heavenly! Great for having the family over – nice option for the kids. A must try – thanks!
I just made this slow cooker Peppermint Hot Chocolate for my boyfriend and I and we are OBSESSED!! What an amazing recipe idea! We plan on making it for our family and friends next time they come over and maybe switching it up with white chocolate chips for next time to try both flavors. Thank you so much! I don’t have to go to Starbucks now and spend 5 dollars on a hot cocoa when this homemade one tastes so much better and saves money!
YAY! And I just love the white chocolate idea. That would be DELICIOUS!
This is the first recipe I tried with my new crockpot and it’s amazing!! I can’t wait to make it on Christmas morning!
Hooray! Love to hear that!
This looks delicious! What size slow cooker do you use?
I can’t wait to make this this Holiday (2016) & I am dying to know where you bought the cups that you served it in!?
I got them from Williams Sonoma! Search “copper”, I just looked and they still carry them. Hope you love the recipe!
Great recipe. I would love to know where to buy those mugs!
Thank you Holly! I got them from Williams Sonoma :)
