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.

3 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar (or Splenda granulated for diabetics)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups barely warm water

In crock pot combine the dry milk powder, cocoa, and sugar. Stir in the warm water and vanilla, stirring to dissolve. Place lid on crockpot and heat on low setting for 3 to 4 hours.

Variations: Add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg for a spiced cocoa.

Add two tablespoons instant coffee granules for a mocha cocoa.

Cut the vanilla in half and add a half teaspoon of peppermint extract for a holiday peppermint cocoa.

Use your imagination to come up with a flavor of your choice!
