Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 quarts strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup instant hot chocolate beverage mix
1 cinnamon stick, broken into halves
1 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp powdered sugar

In a slow cooker, place the coffee, hot chocolate mix, and the cinnamon stick halves; stir to dissolve the hot chocolate mix and to combine.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until hot.  Remove the cinnamon sticks and discard them.

Beat the cream in a medium-size chilled bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Ladle the hot beverage into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
