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.

CREAMY CROCKPOT COCOA
This is a recipe from Pinterest. It was pinned by onegoodthingbyjillee. Evidently she got it from someone named Amanda.
1 cup whipping cream
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
8 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
Pour all the ingredients into a crockpot and whisk together until well combined. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted. Whisk well before serving. Garnish as desired (which means MARSHMALLOWS of course!)
According to Amanda you can also make it with white chocolate, butterscotch, even MINT chocolate chips! I DO love mint chocolate! The possibilities here are vast! I’m thinking of maybe trying a salted caramel version! Yummmm!
