Adapted and inspired from Mrs. Happy Homemaker. Slow Cooker Peppermint Hot Chocolate is the perfect recipe for peppermint lovers! We LOVE this Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate recipe because it's so easy to make. It's made with sweetened condensed milk so this crockpot hot chocolate is SUPER CREAMY!

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 cups good quality milk chocolate chips
  • marshmallows and mini candy canes for garnish optional


  • Combine all ingredients (except garnish) in a slow cooker set to low heat. Let cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. When chocolate is fully melted and the drink is hot to taste, it's done!
