Homemade Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate


A hot chocolate recipe for true chocolate lovers! I can't emphasize how delicious this is! Easy to make, especially because you combine the ingredients in the slow cooker, stir occasionally, and that's it! Seriously addicting! Garnish with real whipped cream or mini marshmallows, if desired. (I prefer my hot chocolate without garnish; it's plenty rich without!)
